No room for error in final games

No room for error in final games

WVU is all too familiar with teams being spoilers for a season. We certainly can’t underestimate either of these teams or think they are just going to roll over for us.

The occasion Dana Holgorsen had been trying to avoid finally arrived Sunday. West Virginia is in a must-win situation and has to beat Kansas Saturday and then Iowa State November 30 to reach six wins and bowl eligibility.

The 47-40 loss to Texas dropped the Mountaineers to 4-6 overall and 3-5 in the Big 12. To be eligible for one of this season’s 35 bowl games, a team has to win at least six games

“We held a quick team meeting and I told the team I was proud of their effort,” Holgorsen said. “Their effort was phenomenal. Their fight was phenomenal. I was really proud of them. They were disappointed mentally and physically pretty drained, so we made it quick.”

WVU has played in a bowl game every season since missing after Rich Rodriguez finished 3-8 in 2001. The Mountaineers have the easiest possible path in the Big 12 as they close against the teams in the bottom two sports in the conference standings. The Jayhawks (2-7) and the Cyclones (1-8) are each 0-6 in the Big 12.
