“He was aggressive in the run game and that was probably the biggest concern, losing the physical nature that Karl (Joseph) brings to the table,” according to Holgorsen. The Mountaineers are at an all-time 4-2 against the Cowboys.
Baylor is 5-0 this season, 3-1 against the spread, after defeating Kansas last week, 66-7. As with all of the Gundy-led teams, there are no obvious weak points where Oklahoma State’s special teams are concerned. A combined 12 points led to the Cowboys’ three conference victories have come from. OU’s lead was 33-28 in the fourth. Trap games can be found anywhere, there is always a seat out there. This was the Cowboy’s fourth missed extra point of the season. The Cowboys escaped with a 2 point victory to remain undefeated.
Skyler Howard, the West Virginia quarterback, is coming off his his college career’s worst game, and it is vital for the Mountaineer, for him to perform well.
West Virginia knew what was going to happen. The Bears are 25-6 ATS from their last 31 home games. They are 25-10-1 ATS from their last 36 games in general.
However, this will easily be the best defense that Baylor’s No. 1 offense has played this season so far. The Cowboys are #33 or better at the national level in both categories .
During the 2014 season, there were three opening dates on the Cowboy’s schedule. OSU is +3 in turnovers with ten points.
And this season he has been even more dynamic, running for 17 yards and a score. On defense, Baylor is allowing 22.2 points with 363.6 yards per game, other than a couple of points in one of their previous games before playing Oklahoma, which gave hardly any points at all. Ateman is driving OSU receiving. James Washington has 19 catches and 255 yards plus a touchdown.
And this season has been even more dynamic with the junior quarterback only playing for the first time against The Jayhawks. He still hit 18 of 27 passes, gaining 246 yards with three touchdowns, throwing two top target Corey Coleman.
WVU immediately responded with a long touchdown drive of their own.
