Sooners Thump Mountaineers
Baker Mayfield didn't get the start for Oklahoma Saturday afternoon but it didn't matter as the Sooners ran away from West Virginia 59-31. OU used a second quarter blitz to put the game away before halftime outscoring WVU 31-7 in that second quarter. Mayfield was benched for the start of the game after a lewd gesture last week against Kansas yet wound up throwing for 281 yards and three touchdowns once he was allowed to enter the game. Oklahoma will take on TCU next weekend in the Big 12 Championship Game. West Virginia finishes up the regular season 7-5 and will now wait it's bowl fate.
