West Virginia-Oklahoma Set For Primetime Kickoff On ABC

Chania Ray contributed 11 assists and Desiree Rhodes had 12 boards, both career highs. Game officials checked a replay to see if West Virginia's defense had too many players on the field but confirmed the play and the game was over.

Charleston Southern shot 18 percent from the floor with 24 fouls and 16 turnovers.

Senior safety Dylan Haines picked off Mountaineer quarterback Skyler Howard twice and Texas recovered a fumble deep in their territory. The good news is that once again, Texas looks to have a talented group of young players to build around.

The pressure is back on Strong, who now has three consecutive five-loss seasons. "He handled being a starting running back", Holgorsen said. The first came against Oklahoma in early October. With 1:39 left in the game, neither team had been able to find the end zone and the Longhorns still trailed by four. "It wasn't pretty, but I thought the defense was excellent".

After blocking Trent Domingue's 37-yard FG attempt, WVU went on a 14-play TD drive in which the Mountaineers' converted third-and-5, third-and-5 and third-and-9 (on a 23-yard post route to the Texas 3 on a catch by Shelton Gibson against Kris Boyd - and Gibson let Boyd hear about it). Crawford was also limited throughout practice during the week and then in the game. "But for the first time, I felt like it didn't bother the kid". On two separate third downs, Shorts had an incredible 7-yard catch, McKoy gained five on a third-and-four and then Gibson caught a 23-yard catch over the middle on third-and-nine. Texas forced a Billy Kinney punt which was fair caught by Jacorey Warrick at the UT 15. However, WVU's Marvin Gross was called for kick-catching interference, which took away the fumble recovery and gave Texas possession at the 42. Holgorsen defended Gross and said he tried to avoid interfering and added that Warrick's indecisiveness shouldn't be held against the Mountaineers. The Longhorns were given one final chance with 1:25 left in the game after Kennedy McKoy failed to pick up two yards to keep West Virginia's drive alive and put the game away. The touchdown from Johnson made the score 24-20, West Virginia. As was the story on Saturday, missed chances ultimately plagued the Longhorns - Texas fumbled and had a field goal blocked inside West Virginia's 30-yard line.

A sack of Buechele by Justin Arndt and Kyzir White got the WVU defense off the field quickly and the Mountaineer offense struck again.

Buechele, who never saw White coming, lost possession of the ball during the hit, and White came up with the football when the two players crashed to the ground. But the Texas defense remained stout, and the Mountaineers punted the ball back to the Longhorns.

Charlie Strong said Tim Cole's father needed to be taken to ICU before the game and that the team was told of the situation before the game. "It was there for us to get".
