West Virginia has experienced all of the highs and lows of a college football season in a matter of three weeks. From the depression of a blowout loss to the high of an upset win and right back down to depression, the Mountaineers are reeling as they enter their bye week.
Ah, the bye week.
It comes at the perfect time for Dana Holgorsen and his Mountaineers this season, smack dab in the middle of the schedule with six of its 12 guaranteed games remaining. It also appears that the team has faced the toughest of its opponents already, with Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Baylor now in the rear view.
The head coach isn’t ready to write off his team, but he knows that the parity in the Big 12 combined with WVU’s struggles make the games ahead just as concerning as though left behind.
“We did play three really good teams that are in our conference, but that’s what’s exciting about the Big 12. That’s why college football and being relevant in the Big 12 is exciting, but with that comes you’ve got to play a lot of good teams. Are they the best three teams in the league? We’ll figure that out at the end of the year.”
