This game features the Texas Longhorns and the West Virginia Mountaineers. Both teams still have the opportunity to make it to the Big 12 Championship game since they both have only one conference loss
Last year Texas upset West Virginia 28-14 on the road and will look to make it two years in a row in front of their home fans.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The Mountaineers enter this game 6-1 overall and 4-1 in the Big 12. They bounced back after a loss to Iowa State by crushing Baylor 58-14. If the Mountaineers manage to win out, they will be in contention for a top 4 spot.
As predicted, the Mountaineers main form of offense comes from their passing game. They average 331.3 passing yards per game, which ranks 10th in the country. This production comes from their quarterback, Will Grier, who has passed for 2272 yards and has thrown 25 touchdowns.
The Big 12 defenses have been known to give up a ton of points per game over the last few years. However, the Mountaineers are only allowing 19.6 points per game, which ranks 23rd in the country.
The Longhorns were upset by Oklahoma State last week, handing them their second loss, their first since week one. However, with the Longhorns having two losses, they are likely eliminated from the College Football Playoff. They will need a bounce back game to continue fighting toward a Big 12 championship, but a New Years’ Six Bowl may be the best they can play for.
The Longhorns offense is pretty balanced as they average 255.4 passing yards per game, and 154.5 rushing yards per game. Sam Ehlinger will be the key to a Longhorns’ victory. Ehlinger has 1817 passing yards and 13 touchdowns, while also having run for 277 yards and 8 touchdowns.
The Longhorns’ defense had a rough game last week, allowing 38 points to the Cowboys. They allow an average of 24.9 points per game, which ranks 53rd. They will need to play much better if they are going to stop Will Grier and keep their Big 12 title chances alive.
