Oklahoma State is on the road a second-consecutive week with West Virginia awaiting the No. 11-ranked Cowboys.

The Pokes opened as an 8-point favorite against the No. 22-ranked Mountaineers in Morgantown, West Virginia, per Bovada. The predicted score from Odds Shark is currently set as a 49.0-33.8 win for the Cowboys.

Oklahoma State (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) and West Virginia (5-2, 3-1 Big 12) are both coming off tight road victories in conference action. The Cowboys escaped Austin, Texas, with a 13-10 win over the Longhorns and the Mountaineers beat Baylor 38-36 in Waco, Texas.

A loss for either team would likely knock the other out of the Big 12 championship game hunt. The game is set for a 12 p.m. ET start and will air on ABC.

Here is how the two teams compare statistically:
