WVU football vs. Oklahoma State matchup preview
The Mountaineers finished their disappointing 2022 season on a high note with a win at Oklahoma State on a combined effort at quarterback between Garrett Greene and Nicco Marchiol.
The true star of the show was then-redshirt freshman running back Jaylen Anderson (15 carries, 158 yards), who popped off two 50-plus yard touchdown runs in the third quarter after going down 10-7 at halftime.
Now, meeting again in Morgantown, the Mountaineers have a shot at back-to-back wins over the Cowboys for the first time since 2013-14.
Oklahoma State’s offense comes into Saturday’s game with the No. 11 total offense (390 yards per game) in the Big 12, which one slot above WVU (380.5 yards per game). On the flip side, WVU is scoring more points per game (28.5) than the Cowboys (26).
Defensively, Oklahoma State trends towards the bottom half of the conference in both yards allowed per game (392.8) and scoring defense (24.7 points per game).
