State struggles, ultimately falls to West Virginia

Share

The Mountaineers have stayed in that conversation with two straight tough victories - 20-16 over Iowa State in Morgantown and 28-23 at Kansas State, games in which WVU didn't score in the second half. Will Grier and the offense found their rhythm again in the first half.

West Virginia's first two touchdowns came in dramatic fashion as Will Grier's first scoring toss was a 75-yard bomb to Ka'Raun White.

If two teams tie for first, they participate in the game with the head-to-head victor being the No. 1 seed. Sills caught a four-yard TD catch later in the second and to close out the first half, as time expired in the second quarter, White made another scoring catch. But only allowing a field goal off of one of those turnovers is definitely a win.

If there are three or more teams tied for first it gets really complicated.

Finally, Northwest Wealth Management LLC raised its position in shares of General Electric by 0.8% during the second quarter. The company's stock had a trading volume of 100,732,305 shares, compared to its average volume of 84,920,232.

K-State forced a third turnover on West Virginia's next drive, but another K-State three-and-out gave the ball back to WVU. On defense, David Long led with 11 tackles, Kyzir White had eight and Al-Rasheed Benton added seven stops. While there were some injuries early on in the season so that may have contributed to some of the struggles and losses, it seems the defense is playing up to the level they are capable of.

The Mountaineers now have a two-game winning streak with two games left to play.

Justin Crawford had another strong game after being a bit banged up in the middle part of the season. West Virginia should keep Texas in check and use this game as a confidence boost going into Norman. The Longhorns have a stingy defense and it will more than likely be another game in the 20's.

That hope still lives, but it will take a near miracle to get there as the regular season rolls into the final two weeks.

So far he’s performing as expected, notching impressive rebounding and blocking numbers in heavy Summer League minutes. It’s undeniable at this point that this rookie class is going to generate a lot of attention for a long time to come.

- QB Will Grier's 372-yard passing performance moves him up to fourth all-time in single-season passing yardage for the Mountaineers with 3,440 yards.

I am sure there are many college football fans out there that do not believe West Virginia has a chance in the world to win out in their final two games, including some Mountaineer fans.

It will be a higher scoring game, as both OU and WVU do not have the best defenses and very potent offensive units. When West Virginia joined the Big 12 in 2012 the Longhorns were considered the flagship program of the league, but the Mountaineers have won three of five meetings and Texas is coming off two losing seasons.

In a four-way tie, West Virginia would be on the outs for the Big 12 Championship Game, since it lost to both OSU and TCU.
