The solid Mountaineer defense came though big time!
Check it out:
Oklahoma State entered with a perfect 15-for-15 in red-zone efficiency, J.W. Walsh owned a 70-percent completion percentage and the Cowboys had conceded only one turnover all season.
However, Oklahoma State wasn’t the same high-performing offense Saturday, a glaring reason for its 30-21 upset loss to West Virginia.
The Cowboys had just one opportunity in the red zone on Saturday after averaging five visits in each of their previous three games. Not only did the West Virginia defense hold to force a field-goal attempt, but Ben Grogan’s 23-yarder ricocheted off the upright, costing OSU a chance to tie the game in the fourth quarter. Grogan was 0-for-2 on the day.
