Third Quarter: West Virginia Retakes Lead, 34-31

It's been just as exciting as expected in Austin so far. Both teams scored on their first possessions before West Virginia opened up a 21-7 lead taking advantage of poor kick off coverage and a fumble to score on short fields. The Texas defense stepped up in the 2nd quarter, however, and the Horns battled back to take their first lead of the game at 28-24.

West Virginia closed out the half with a field goal to close the gap to 28-27.
