West Virginia Loses 5th Straight

Posted:

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Landry Jones threw six touchdown passes, including a 5-yarder to Kenny Stills with 24 seconds left, to lift No. 13 Oklahoma to a wild 50-49 win over West Virginia on Saturday night.

Jones finished with 554 passing yards to break his own school record. He needed a terrific game to offset the performances of West Virginia's tandem of Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.

The Sooners (8-2, 6-1 Big 12) couldn't hang onto a 31-17 halftime lead. West Virginia went ahead 49-44 with 2:53 left on Bailey's 40-yard TD catch, but Jones led Oklahoma 54 yards for the go-ahead score.

Austin rushed for a school-record 344 yards and set a Big 12 record with 572 all-purpose yards.

Bailey had 13 catches for 205 yards and four touchdowns for West Virginia, (5-5, 2-5) which lost its fifth straight game.

The teams combined for 1,440 yards.
