College Football: Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 12:00 pm (Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium)
The Line: West Virginia Mountaineers +7.5 -- Over/Under: 58.5
The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the West Virginia Mountaineers meet in week 13 college football action from Milan Puskar Stadium on Saturday.
Oklahoma State is 7-3 so far. Following a loss to Baylor on October 19, the Cowboys have since rattled off victories over Iowa State, TCU and Kansas in succession.
In the win over Kansas, Oklahoma State’s Spencer Sanders passed for 168 yards and a TD, and Chuba Hubbard managed 122 rush yards and two TDs. Dillon Stoner caught five balls for 150 yards and two touchdowns there as well.
Over on the West Virginia side, they’re 4-6 so far. The Mountaineers were on a five-game losing streak versus Texas, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Baylor and Texas Tech before getting a win over Kansas State their last time out.
In the win over Kansas State, Cowboys QB Jarret Doege had 234 yards with three scores, and Leddie Brown led the rush on 62 yards. George Campbell caught five balls for 92 yards and two touchdowns in that one.
The Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in their last seven after an ATS win and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 on turf. OK State is 4-1 ATS in their last five in November and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.
Meanwhile, the Mountaineers are 2-5-1 ATS in the last eight after a straight-up win and 1-3-2 ATS in their last six home games. West Virginia is 7-23-2 ATS in their last 32 at home versus a team with a winning road record and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six after an ATS win.
Oklahoma State was teetering after falling by double-digits to Texas Tech and being punched in the mouth by Baylor, but since they seem to be straightening out. It’s worth noting that the Cowboys’ wins over Iowa State and TCU each came by seven-point margins, however.
In any case, West Virginia just doesn’t seem to have the offensive juice to keep anywhere close here. They’ve logged 17 points or fewer in four of their last five games. I’m going to stick with Oklahoma State on the cover in this one.
