MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Oklahoma's stingy secondary is getting another chance to slow down a 3,000-yard passer.
The Sooners held Nick Florence to a season-low 172 yards in a win over Baylor last week. On Saturday night, No. 13 Oklahoma will try to put the kibosh on West Virginia's Geno Smith.
The Sooners have allowed only two opponents to throw for more than 200 yards this season.
This won't be the game that was envisioned over the summer as a showdown among Big 12 contenders.
Barring a meltdown by first-place Kansas State, Oklahoma (7-2, 5-1 Big 12) needs to win its three remaining games to be considered for an at-large BCS bowl berth.
West Virginia (5-4, 2-4) has lost four straight. Another would give the Mountaineers their longest losing streak since 1986.
