NORMAN, Okla. (AP) West Virginia's Big 12 opener made its nonconference dominance look like something of a mirage on Saturday.
No. 15 Oklahoma rolled past the 23rd-ranked Mountaineers 44-24 in the conference opener for both teams.
West Virginia (3-1, 0-1) entered the game leading the nation in scoring defense and turnover margin, but those numbers changed dramatically against the Sooners. The Mountaineers gave up 24 points in the first half, one more than they had allowed combined in wins over Georgia Southern, Liberty and Maryland.
