The Texas Longhorns hope to avoid a sixth straight loss in Saturday’s road showdown with the West Virginia Mountaineers. Both teams will need a win or else they’ll risk missing out on bowl eligibility.
These teams met last season with the Longhorns coming out on top 17-13 at home.
Texas football is in total disarray at the moment. After being ranked earlier in the season the Longhorns have now lost 5 straight games including last week’s monumental embarrassment at home to Kansas. Texas was 31 point favorites yet lost 57-56 in overtime to a team that hadn’t won a road conference game in their last 56 tries.
The Longhorns offense has been towards the top of the Big 12, averaging the 4th most yards per game with 436. They also average a solid 37.8 points per game, which is second best in the conference.
Texas’ defense has been near the bottom of the conference, they are currently allowing 435.5 yards per game which is 3rd worst in the conference. The teams scoring defense has also struggled and are surrendering 32.5 points per game, 7th best in the Big 12.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The Mountaineers enter this game off a disappointing road loss to Kansas State 17-34. West Virginia fell behind early and trailed 14-0 after the first quarter due to turnovers. Jarret Doege threw a lot and finished 27/45 passing for 268 yards. He passed for 2 touchdowns but also threw 2 interceptions.
West Virginia is 220th in the nation in passing and Doege has thrown for 2448 yards with 13 TDs and 10 INTs on the year. Leddie Brown leads the team in rushing with 751 yards and 11 TDs.
The Mountaineers offense has been towards the bottom Big 12, averaging the 7th most yards per game with 372.3. They average just 25.7 points per game, which is second worst in the conference.
West Virginia’s defense has been right in the middle of the pack, they are currently allowing 350.9 yards per game which is 4th best in the conference. The teams scoring defense has also been solid surrendering just 24.1 points per game, 5th best in the Big 12.

4* Free Week 12 NCAA Betting Pick: West Virginia -2.5 & UNDER
It’s going to be hard for the Longhorns to get off the mat after getting knocked out by Kansas last week. Even with a bowl game on the line, the team has lost their last five consecutive games.
West Virginia is also riding the struggle bus, but they seem to have more life than Texas at this point. They’ll also have the luxury of playing at home in this game.
It could be another defensive letdown for the Longhorns on the ground and through the air. I’m expecting a big night for Mountaineers running back Leddie Brown coupled with an efficient enough performance from Jarrett Doege.
Texas also just lost running back Bijan Robinson for the season, and there’s a chance wideout Jordan Whittington won’t even be able to suit up for this game.
I’m taking the Mountaineers at home to cover the small spread.
