Jay Norvell: Offense must get off to fast start against West Virginia
“It’s important, especially on the road, to start well,” Norvell said. “You’ve got a hostile crowd; it’s a night game and they’ve been looking forward to this game.
“When we can run the ball and have good mix on our first drive, and go down and score a touchdown in the red zone, that really sets our team off with a lot of confidence. Especially knowing you’ve got an explosive team you’re playing against that you’re gonna have your hands full with all day.”
The Sooners scored touchdowns on each of their first two drives in a 42-34 win over the Bears.
“To drive the ball 12, 14 plays means a lot of people are doing things right,” he said. “We’ve got to continue to do that. We’d like to mix some big plays in there to get a big chunk, a big pass, a big run, but to be able to execute play after play after play on a long drive to score … that was impressive and we’ve got to continue to do that.”
