West Virginia’s offense and defense stepped up in a major way today and beating a very good NC State team will give the team incredible confidence moving forward.
The Mountaineers travel to Kansas next Saturday to play the Jayhawks in Lawrence before a bye week. Following the bye week, West Virginia could potentially be 3-1 when they welcome the Texas Longhorns to Morgantown.
