The Mountaineers play host to the Oklahoma Sooners this evening in Morgantown in what, for the second straight year, is the Big 12 opener for both teams. As we addressed earlier this week, one of two streaks will come to an end tonight: WVU being undefeated in Big 12 home openers or WVU being held winless in Big 12 home night games. All of those losses, save one, were close games (three of them went to overtime).
WVU has proven it can hang with the big boys in the past and even recently against Alabama. The mistakes from a week ago must be avoided if WVU is to be able to hold serve at home tonight.
