No. 6 Oklahoma, No. 16 Washington advance to title games

Oklahoma outlasts West Virginia to advance to Big 12 championship | College Football Highlights

But the defense - which returned two Will Grier fumbles for touchdowns -probably is the reason why OU won the game.

The Mountaineers enter this game 8-2 on the season and ranked number 13 in the nation.

OU (11-1 overall, 8-1 Big 12) has an opportunity to avenge its lone loss of the season when it faces Texas (9-3, 7-2) in the Big 12 Championship Game next Saturday at 11 a.m.at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Will Grier kept the Mountaineers in the game with 539 yards passing and four touchdowns. Rather than owning a 21-14 lead three minutes into the second quarter, West Virginia faced a 3rd-and-19. They scored twice on defense.

West Virginia scored 28 points in the second half.

Sooners junior linebacker Caleb Kelly sacked Grier, forced a fumble and returned it 10 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give OU a 35-21 lead.

The first penalty came early in the second quarter, when officials called offensive pass interference on wide receiver David Sills V. Sills crashed into OU defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles, freeing Gary Jennings Jr. for an easy touchdown grab in the corner of the end zone. Here it is in a downtrodden end of meaningful play in The Day After. Murray had nine carries for 114 yards and a touchdown. The Sooners have allowed 40 points in four consecutive games.

West Virginia: Will await the December 2 announcement of its bowl destination.




Defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow stormed off Mountaineer Field alone, rocketing his helmet to the turf as the irksome strains of "Boomer Sooner" played in the distance. Grier also had five carries for -22 yards and a touchdown.

Again, Oklahoma immediately answered.

West Virginia (8-3, 6-3 Big 12) was seemingly in place to re-take the lead when McKoy busted through the Oklahoma secondary to set up a first-and-goal, but WVU wide receiver TJ Simmons was flagged for a personal foul for blocking OU cornerback Tre Brown out of bounds, taking the ball from the OU 5 back to the WVU 43. Oklahoma linebacker Curtis Bolton picked it up and ran 48 yards for a touchdown to put the Sooners ahead 59-49.

In addition to six touchdowns and one field goal from the Sooners' offense, their defense added a pair of touchdowns on fumble returns. "So there were nerves and excitement and passion-everybody was really alive for it being an 11 o'clock game".

The Mountaineers attempted an onside kick, but OU recovered. Lincoln Riley's decision to go for it on fourth-and-5 from the WVU 40 showed he wasn't concerned in the slightest about West Virginia's defense. He played Saturday against Kansas but was not efficient as a passer, completing just 16 of 28 passes for 154 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

OU has now won 20 straight true road games, a streak Riley described as "hard to fathom".
