What you need to know about West Virginia
The Mountaineers are coming off a thrilling upset of an Iowa State program where Jarret Doege lit it up through the air and the defense made things tough on Brock Purdy. West Virginia won 38-31 with Doege passing for 370 yards and three touchdowns, while running back Leddie Brown added 109 yards on the ground and two scores.
West Virginia held Purdy to 16-of-27 passing for just 185 yards on the day and now it will look to similarly frustrate Spencer Sanders, who has been a little uneven this season. Mountaineers linebacker Josh Chandler-Semedo had 12 tackles and a sack in the victory and he'll have to make plays from sideline-to-sideline again for West Virginia to earn its second upset against a ranked opponent in as many weeks.
What you need to know about Oklahoma State
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State ran circles around the Kansas Jayhawks last Saturday, and the extra yardage (534 yards vs. 143 yards) paid off. Oklahoma State was completely in charge, breezing past Kansas 55-3 at home. It was a big night for Cowboys QB Spencer Sanders, who passed for two touchdowns and 157 yards on 19 attempts in addition to rushing for one score and 53 yards.
The blowout meant that Jaylen Warren only received nine carries in the game but he still turned in 69 yards and has now rushed for 850 yards and six touchdowns this season. Oklahoma State will have to establish its running game early to open things up for Sanders down the field against a West Virginia defense that is gaining confidence after slowing down Purdy last week.
