Oklahoma Handles West Virginia, 56-28

Ninth-ranked Oklahoma, continuing to make up ground for two September losses, overpowered No. 14 West Virginia 56-28 on a snowy Saturday night.

Behind 160 rushing yards from Samaje Perine and 147 by Joe Mixon, the Sooners (9-2, 8-0 Big 12) ran it 64 times on 79 plays to win their eighth straight game overall and their fifth consecutive against the Mountaineers (8-2, 5-2).

Quarterback Baker Mayfield completed nine passes -- two for touchdowns -- and tacked on two rushing scores as Oklahoma remained alive for a College Football Playoff berth.

"The way we're playing right now, I think we deserve some consideration," Mayfield said. "It's all about who's playing the best at the time. We have to have to have some stuff happen for us to make it in there, but we've just got to take care of business and keep making statements." (Reuters)
