Inconsistency seems to be the biggest struggle.
Check it out:
College football is a four-quarter, 60-minute contest and West Virginia right now is not making enough plays at the end of games to win them.
“It’s a huge concern,” admitted Mountaineer coach Dana Holgorsen. “We talk about it being a fourth-quarter game. We talk about we’ve got to finish everything that we do. That doesn’t happen to good football teams.”
Two weeks ago against Texas Tech, the Mountaineers had a 27-16 lead early in the third quarter before watching the Red Raiders score 21 unanswered points to pull out a 37-27 victory.
Saturday at Kansas State, West Virginia had a five-point lead with 10:40 remaining in the third quarter after Josh Lambert’s 50-yard field goal made the score 12-7. Then, K-State answered with a 14-play, 78-yard drive that ate eight minutes off the clock and enabled the Wildcats to retake the lead at 14-12.
