West Virginia +7.5 over Oklahoma State – Two-loss West Virginia (5-2) welcomes 11th-ranked Oklahoma State (6-1) to Morgantown, W.V. Saturday in yet another game which could ultimately play a role in shaping college football’s version of the Final Four.

Both of West Virginia’s losses were by a 31-24 margin – first to Virginia Tech, currently ranked No. 13, in the season opener at a neutral site and then again three weeks ago at fourth-ranked TCU.
Both losses came down to the final moments, so one could accurately surmise that West Virginia is only a handful of plays from being in the mid-season Top 10.
Florida transfer Will Grier is even better than advertised and should be at least getting a nibble in the Heisman Trophy conversation.
Oklahoma State, meanwhile, is playing its second straight conference road game after narrowly defeating Texas, 13-10, last week in overtime. The Cowboys are also dealing with some injuries up front which has their normally high octane offense hitting on something less than all cylinders.

Take 22nd-ranked West Virginia plus the 7.5 points over Oklahoma State.
