As the No. 22 Texas Longhorns head into their early kickoff against the West Virginia Mountaineers at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, they have the opportunity to win their third consecutive game, as well as take a lead over another conference contender.

Texas actually trails the Mountaineers in the all-time series by one game, so a win Saturday would also bring them even with the rare conference opponent who holds an all-time winning record against Texas. When it’s all said and done, the Longhorns will have a huge impact on who reaches the conference championship game — especially if they win out.

The Longhorns will face the toughest defense they’ve played against this year, as West Virginia manages to create havoc in the backfield, resulting in turnovers.

Simply put, pressuring young college quarterbacks leads to poor decisions and when you can do that without having to blitz, you tend to be very good.

Saturday’s game against West Virginia looks less like a game that Texas is capable of winning comfortably and more like the type of game that has constantly resulted in disappointment for Herman and the Horns.
