Freshman running back Samaje Perine ran for 242 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead fourth-ranked Oklahoma to a 45-33 victory over West Virginia Saturday night at Milan Puskar Stadium.
West Virginia (2-2, 0-1) battled Oklahoma toe-to-toe in the first half before the Sooners’ big offensive line and powerful running game wore down the Mountaineers in the second half.
OU finished the game with 301 yards on the ground – 180 of those coming in the second half.
"They came out and beat us on all three sides of the ball," said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. "We got out-played; got out-coached. My congratulations to Oklahoma. They're a good football team."
