NORMAN — The Big 12 Conference announced on Monday that Oklahoma’s Nov. 17 game at West Virginia will kickoff at 6 p.m., and will be televised nationally by FOX.

Gus Johnson will handle the play-by-play duties with analysis from Charles Davis, while Julie Alexandria reports from the sidelines.

The Sooners are 2-2 all-time vs. the Mountaineers. The initial Big 12 meeting between the two squads also will mark OU’s first contest at West Virginia.

The teams most recently met in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl with the Mountaineers claiming a 48-28 victory. OU hasn’t faced West Virginia in a regular season contest since the two teams squared off in Norman in 1982.
