The no. 4 Oklahoma Sooners face their toughest test of the young 2014 season, traveling to the unfriendly confines of Mountaineer Field in Morgantown face West Virginia, but will be without leading rusher Keith Ford.
Ford will reportedly miss at least two to three weeks after sustaining a small fracture in his foot during Saturday’s 34-10 victory over Tennessee. So far this season, Ford has rushed for 197 yards and five touchdowns while averaging 5.7 yards per carry.
Head coach Bob Stoops will now turn to the duo of Samaje Perine and Alex Ross in hopes of replacing Ford for the next few weeks. West Virginia could pose an extremely dangerous matchup for the Sooners in what is shaping up to be a shootout between two very potent offenses.
