Sooners prep for wide-open West Virginia offense

Whatever the name of the particular attack, Oklahoma's defensive bugaboo in recent years has been slowing teams with pass-heavy offensive systems.

Their first such test this season ended in a win, but the Sooners were torched often while beating Tulsa 52-38. After a bye week, No. 15 Oklahoma (3-0) will face a similar style of offense Saturday when it hosts No. 23 West Virginia (3-0) in the Big 12 Conference opener for both teams.

In the Big 12, the Sooners will see many passing teams - Baylor, Texas Tech, TCU and Oklahoma State among them. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says the best measure of a team's defense is if it wins or loses, not necessarily how many yards or points it surrenders.
