Kyler Murray doesn't care about your Heisman projections.
The future Oakland Athletic put together another masterful performance against an awful West Virginia defense, but such is life in the Big 12 conference. Murray combined for four touchdowns in a head-to-head duel with fellow Heisman candidate Will Grier.
Both quarterbacks shined under the spotlight, but two Oklahoma defensive touchdowns stood out in their eventual victory which will send the Sooners to the Big 12 title game.
Oklahoma did not win with style points, which is an issue given their current predicament with the polls. Sitting at No. 6 in the nation, the Sooners defense did nothing to quell concerns about their overall productivity.
Against the Mountaineers they did just enough, but blaming the excellent QB play in the Big 12 for their faults just isn't good enough. The CFP committee knows this, and will penalize the Sooners should the situation call for it.

Nonetheless, for Murray and the offense, another day at the office provides more accolades for this historic unit. Whether it'll be enough to move up two spots in the rankings is regrettably out of their hands.
