Background: Oklahoma leads the All-Time series, 2-1. They have not met since 1987.
Oklahoma has won two straight, including the last in the Big XII Championsjip Game in San Antonio.
West Virginia is coming off a heart-breaking loss to Pittsburgh.
Sam Bradford could be a legend-in-making in Norman. He's the most efficient QB in the nation and if he doesn't go down against Texas Tech, OU could be squaring off against the Buckeyes in the Championship.
Malcolm Kelly is one of the best wideouts in program history and will be a star on Sundays.
OU has seen better defenses, but this unit is still as solid as ever. Auston English is a beast of a defensive end, and there may have been no bigger All-American snub than Curtis Lofton at linebacker.
The Sooners have one of the biggest defensive lines in the country, led by All-American Duke Robinson and the behemoth himself, Phil Loadholt.
Let's be honest, the team itself is perfect, so I'll just talk about possibile distractions.
OU hasn't won a BCS game since the 2003 Rose Bowl against WASSU, lost three straight since then.
Retard defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger (I think he might be related to Danny Granger, but I'm not certain) won't be playing in this game virtue to his shoplifting at a Pheonix area Burlington Coat Factory.
One of the nation's most talented secondaries will be depleted of some of it's key players, as Reggie Smith is injured and Lendy Holmes is academically ineligible.
West Virginia Advantages:
The Mountaineers could, quite possibly, be the fastest team in Division I football.
Owen Schmidt, Pat White, and Steve Slaton (or Schwhiteton as I like to say) make up one of the best, most versatile backfields in the nation.
They have a balanced, fast defense that makes plays all over the field.
Noel Devine and Darius Reynaud could be the best playmakers you've never heard of.
West Virginia Disadvantages:
Frustration in Morgantown, as yet another coach leaves for the Michigan job in less tahn a year's time.
Though I think that Pat White has an under-rated arm, the Mountaineers are certainly a one-dimensional team offensively.
They have crumbled in the big game, not once, but twice this season. Also, looking down the schedule for some impressive wins, and I got what? Rutgers? Cincinnati?
Probably disappointed, thinking they were headed to the C'hip before the Pittsburgh fiasco.
okluschen: Oklahoma. Gotta go with my boys here. They've got the talent edge and the only coach they're worried about replacing is Kevin Sumlin (a positional coach for those of you who don't know), for cryin' out loud. Would be worried about the secondary if it wasn't WVA. Since it is, I got the Sooners in a preview for next years championship run.
Zorgon: Oklahoma. Look, I'm trying to take off my Sooner coloured glasses here. These are two very good, very equal football programs. Both suffered hard losses to inferior competition (OU lost to Colorado, WVU lost to Pitt) and OK losses to OK competition (OU lost to Texas Tech, WVU lost to South Florida). Both have powerful, intimidating defenses and excellent offenses. But, the fact is, West Virginias coach ran away to Michigan beefore a BCS bowl, which has to be incredibly demoralizing to the team. Bob Stoops, on the other hand....will probobly coach the Sooners until I die, until he gets an offer from the NFL, or gets and offer from Indiana while getting caught in a NCAA rules violation involving calling players too many times. So, the upper hand has to go to OU, simply because of that. I say the final score is 36-30, Oklahoma, OT.
Jason Frost: Oklahoma. OU has a better offense, better defense, better special teams, play in a stronger conference, and have a better/existant coach. OU big.
Bottom Line: Oklahoma 3, West Virginia 0
