Neal Brown’s Mountaineers are off to a solid start, but the meat of their schedule remains, beginning this week with Texas. They’re 4-2 overall and 3-2 in the Big 12 race, one game out of first place. They have notched conference wins over Baylor (in OT), against hapless Kansas, and just buried a QB deficient Kansas State, with losses coming on the road to Oklahoma State by 14 and Texas Tech by 7. The meat of their league schedule yet remains (Texas, ISU, OU) and they’ve been a much tougher out at home (4-0) than on the road (0-2).
The Mountaineers are a scrappy, hard-playing, well-drilled football team that has relied on good defense and ball control offense to remain a viable dark horse in the Big 12 race.
