*****Game Thread: West Virginia Mountaineers @ Texas Longhorns*****

The West Virginia Mountaineers head to Austin this weekend, a place they have won four times before, holding a 2-2 overall record on the season.  The Mountaineers evened things up with a 33-10 win over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg last weekend. Neal Brown's offense is led by Georgia transfer quarterback and former 5-star recruit JT Daniels. 

Texas got the better of West Virginia last season and left Morgantown with a 31-23 victory.  The two-headed monster of Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson did the most damage in the game, with both surpassing the century mark on the ground.

The Longhorns look for another strong rushing performance against a stout West Virginia defense which ranks 23rd overall and allows approximately 302 yards per game.

Steve Sarkisian will likely start Hudson Card at quarterback, while Quinn Ewers wraps up rehabbing his injured clavicle.  The Texas offense will need to be creative and find ways to open up the passing game - something they struggled to do in last week's loss to Texas Tech.

The loser will drop to 0-2 in conference play and essentially find themselves in dire straits as it pertains to making an appearance in the Big 12 Championship Game in December.

The Longhorns are favored by 9.5 points in this game.

I had a thought about the conservative play calling by Sark.  I think that he is so afraid of a turnover when he has the lead that he is not calling his game.  He is trying to play conservative so as not to turn the ball over and simultaneously trying to run the clock out when we have the lead.  Am I way off base here?

Heads up, Sling and Dish have lost ESPN and the Longhorn Network due to Disney contract expiring. 

The game will be on FS1 which is also Sling. Some are buying Firesticks which includes a YouTube TV trial ($55 a mo.) which carries ESPN.

My son in Wash State is pissed.
