Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said the Sooners' defense had a "poor game" vs. West Virginia on Saturday, despite OU coming out with the 50-49 victory.

WVU receiver/running back Tavon Austin had a career day vs. the Sooners with more than 550 all-purpose yards. 

Stoops, speaking at his weekly press conference, said Austin was able to rack up that kind of yardage due to missed tackles and bad defensive schemes.

Stoops said his Sooners will be challenged again in this weekend's Bedlam game vs. Oklahoma State. 

Kickoff for the game in Norman is set for 2:30 p.m.
