The Mountaineer football team is preparing to embark on one of its most challenging months in recent memory. WVU will play four games in October against teams that currently sport a combined 14-2 record.
The first challenge takes place Saturday against 3-1 Texas. Many of the key performers in last season’s dramatic 42-41 WVU win have departed. However, Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger returns. Ehlinger, a Heisman Trophy candidate, has thrown 15 touchdowns with just one interception. He’s currently fifth nationally in total offense.
The fellas (Brad Howe, Hoppy Kercheval and Tony Caridi) begin their breakdown of this week’s game, recap last Saturday’s four conference games, and offer a key number on WVU’s performance as a home underdog.
They’ll return Thursday with their full analysis on the ninth ever meeting between West Virginia and Texas.
