When the Texas Longhorns seek to consolidate momentum from Saturday’s upset win over the No. 6 Oklahoma State Cowboys against the West Virginia Mountaineers at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Nov. 7, the game will kick off at 11 a.m. Central on ABC.
In head coach Neal Brown’s second season, the Mountaineers sit at 4-2 on the season after a resounding 37-10 win over the No. 16 Wildcats in Morgantown. After a 5-7 season in 2019, the victory over Kansas State marked the most impressive performance for West Virginia in Brown’s tenure — quarterback Jarrett Doege went over 300 yards passing for the third consecutive game, the Mountaineers ran for 184 yards, and the defense intercepted three passes from Wildcats quarterback Will Howard.
Beyond the big win over Kansas State, however, West Virginia has largely feasted on the weaker opponents on its schedule, opening with a 46-point win over Eastern Kentucky and then taking care of business against Baylor and Kansas. Last week, the Mountaineers lost to the Red Raiders despite out-gaining Texas Tech by 100 yards.
Last season, Texas used three fourth-quarter touchdowns to surge past West Virginia in Morgantown, 42-31. In the all-time series, the Mountaineers hold a 5-4 advantage.
