Fiesta Bowl

January 02, 2008|By ORLANDO SENTINEL

No. 11 West Virginia (10-2) vs. No. 3 Oklahoma (11-2)

Site -- Glendale, Ariz.

Time, TV -- 8 p.m., chs. 45, 5

Line -- Oklahoma by 7

Outlook -- Coach Rich Rodriguez's sudden departure to Michigan is a distraction for West Virginia, but the Mountaineers still have one of the country's best quarterbacks in Pat White (2,733 total yards, 14 rushing touchdowns, 12 touchdown passes). West Virginia is fourth in the nation with 292.9 rushing yards per game. Oklahoma is fresh off a Big 12 championship with a 38-17 rout of then-No. 1 Missouri in the conference title game. Associate head coach Bill Stewart will coach the game for West Virginia.
