Let’s hope they can get the road trip woes worked out.
Check it out:
The Mountaineers go into Kansas State this weekend looking for their first road win of the season.
In three games away from Morgantown, the Mountaineers have been less than sharp. It all started in Norman against the Sooners. West Virginia got off to a promising start in the first quarter against Oklahoma when Dreamius Smith ran 75 yards for an early touchdown to put the Mountaineers on top 7-0. That would be the last time any points were scored by West Virginia, and Oklahoma walked away with a 16-7 win.
The second road game wouldn’t be much better for the Mountaineers. Going into Baltimore, the Mountaineers were expected to give rival Maryland a game. Six turnovers by West Virginia was the story in this one, and the Terrapins shutout the Mountaineers 37-0 for their first win against the Mountaineers since 2004.
Then there was Baylor. The night in Waco will haunt Mountaineer fans for years to come, as West Virginia got a taste of just how good the Bears are this season. With the likes of Bryce Petty and Lache Seastrunk, Baylor produced a school record 872 while tallying 73 points. Credit Baylor Head Coach Art Briles for not running up the score, as the Bears had 56 points at the half.
