Oklahoma State and Texas Tech may have the better offensive statistics in the Big 12, but this West Virginia attack features the best QB the Sooners defense will see all year in Heisman candidate Will Grier.

But OU has won six straight in the West Virginia series, and redshirt senior linebacker Curtis Bolton doesn’t sound worried.

"I wouldn't call it a rivalry, but they get rowdy over there. There's not much to do in West V," Bolton says. "I know last time I was there, their fans talked mess more than anyone else. Their players are rowdy. It's a smash-mouth football game."

It’s pretty simple for OU, a win and the Sooners are in to the Big 12 title game. A loss and they’ll need Kansas to beat Texas to make it to Dallas.
