No. 7/8 West Virginia (4-0, 1-0) will face its most difficult challenge to date when the Mountaineers hit the road for the first true road game of the season against No. 9/11 Texas (4-0, 1-0) in a prime-time Big 12 Conference matchup.
After a wild 70-63 shootout with Baylor a week ago where West Virginia set a long-list of offensive records, things won’t get any easier for the Mountaineers as the eyes of Texas look down upon them.
The Longhorns are coming off an impressive 41-36 conference opening road victory over defending Big 12 champion Oklahoma State, and this weekend’s matchup will be the first meeting of top ten teams at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium since 2008.
