3 Reasons Why Oklahoma Is Guaranteed To Beat West Virginia This Weekend

The Oklahoma Sooners are back in the top 10 following their dominant win over Baylor, and now can get back in the College Football Playoff conversation with a road win over West Virginia on Saturday. Here are three reasons why Oklahoma will do just that:

3) The Sooners have never lost in Morgantown
West Virginia has one of the biggest home-field advantages in the country, but Oklahoma has never had a problem winning in Morgantown. They've never lost there, and that's the kind of mental motivator that will give them even more confidence going into the game.

2) Oklahoma's offense vs. West Virginia's defense
The Sooners come into this game with one of the best offenses in the entire country, ranking third in the country in yards (558 per game) and seventh in points (44.1 per game). That's bad news for West Virginia, who were out-gained by 153 yards by a mediocre Texas team last Saturday. Look for Oklahoma to have their way in this one.

1) Baker Mayfield
All signs point to Oklahoma winning in comfortable fashion, but if this turns out to be a close game, Mayfield has shown time and time again throughout his career that no one is better than him in clutch situations. He won a big games at Tennessee, at Baylor and at Oklahoma State last year - now, he'll win another one at West Virginia.
