*****GAME THREAD: West Virginia Mountaineers @ #22 Texas Longhorns*****

Recommended Posts

  • Administrators


The Texas Longhorns (4-2, 3-2) will meet the West Virginia Mountaineers (4-3, 3-2) in Austin, Texas on Saturday.  Both teams are coming off their best wins of the season, with Texas defeating sixth ranked Oklahoma State 41-34 in Stillwater, and West Virginia handily beating #16 Kansas State in Morgantown.

The Mountaineers have fared well in Austin, notching a 4-1 record all-time at DKR, but haven’t won a road game this season.

Texas is a Top-10 team nationally in scoring offense, averaging 44.3 points per game.  West Virginia’s defense is is ranked fourth in the country in total defense.  While the Longhorns’ running game has struggled as a whole this season with the exception of Sam Ehlinger, Texas did have some success last week against the Cowboys. The tandem of Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson gained 108 yards on 22 carries in the win.  West Virginia’s impressive defensive line will look to limit the ground game and put pressure on Ehlinger.

Junior Mountaineer QB Jarret Doege has thrown for over 300 yards in each of his last three games, including a 301 yard, 2 TD performance in the upset win over Kansas State on Halloween. West Virginia averages 33 points per game, and they will need Doege to have an efficient, mistake-free game against a rising Texas defense to pull off consecutive wins over ranked opponents.

I honestly think this staff should consider giving Sam 2 weeks off.  Let Casey start against Kansas and see what you have in him.  Bring Sam and have him in case, but 2 weeks off for Sam would do wond

Bijan is no doubt the better runner between him and Roschon, he's exciting to watch. However I think Roschon may be the better pass blocker of the two. I have no problem using both.
