Sooner4OU Commentary: This game is so important to the Sooners BCS chances and stopping the run will be a crucial element. The Mountaineers run a fairly balanced offense or attempt to, so Mike Stoops’ plan to stop the run seems like the right call. It will be a challenge in Morgantown, but one the Sooners can rise up to.

“We have to stop the run to be a good defense,” defensive tackle Casey Walker said Monday, leaving no wiggle room. “The front four has to be solid. It has to be. That’s imperative.”
