West Virginia vs Oklahoma State Week 13 Game Info
2022 NCAA College Football Game
West Virginia Mountaineers (4-7, 2-6 Big 12) vs. No. 24 Oklahoma State Cowboys (7-4, 4-4)
Date: Saturday, Nov. 26, 2022
Time: 12 p.m. ET
Venue: Boone Pickens Stadium — Stillwater, OK
Week 13 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Big 12 showdown between the West Virginia Mountaineers and No. 24 Oklahoma State Cowboys. West Virginia boasted a .500 record through its first six games but has since dropped four of its last five outings, including a 48-31 loss to ranked Kansas State on Saturday.
Despite being the nation's No. 24-ranked program, Oklahoma State has struggled over the last month or so. The Cowboys are now 1-3 straight up in their last four games following a 28-13 loss to Oklahoma in Week 12 that saw the former down 28-0 after the first quarter. Needless to say, a stronger start is needed this weekend.

West Virginia vs Oklahoma State Prediction & Pick
It's no secret that Oklahoma State's season has gone off the rails in recent weeks. Each of its last three losses was a blowout to some degree, however, a meeting with West Virginia offers the Cowboys a chance to get back on the saddle.
Oklahoma State has won seven straight games against West Virginia, defeating the latter by an average score of 33.7-22.1 over that stretch. One of the biggest reasons behind the Cowboys' success has been their defense, holding the Mountaineers to 13 or fewer points in the last three meetings — including just one field goal in last year's 24-3 victory.
Oklahoma State's aerial attack has been its bread and butter in 2022, averaging the 14th-most passing yards per game (285.7). With West Virginia surrendering the 10th-most passing yards of all 131 FBS schools, the Cowboys will have plenty of opportunities to get a big lead early on and not look back.
Back Oklahoma State to rebound this Saturday with a win.
Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma State: 33 | West Virginia: 14

I see Oklahoma State easily covering the 9.5-point spread against West Virginia. On top of the Cowboys beating the Mountaineers by 10-plus points in four of their last six collisions, West Virginia is also just 2-7 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine Big 12 matchups.
Taking into account that Oklahoma State is also 7-0 ATS in the last seven chapters of this rivalry, I'm taking the Cowboys on the spread in Week 13.
Bet: Oklahoma State -9.5 (-110)
