No. 25 Baylor-No. 9 WVU average 98 points a game
“No, it’s a team game,” he said. “I expect our defense to go out there and play really well. If anyone’s expecting our defense to give up a lot of points, then whatever, I don’t believe that.”
Whether West Virginia leading rusher Shawne Alston will play could be a game-time decision. He bruised his right thigh two weeks ago and didn’t get a carry in a 31-21 win over Maryland last week, and the Mountaineers were limited to 25 yards on the ground overall.
The game marks a reunion between Holgorsen and Baylor’s Art Briles. They were together on Mike Leach’s staff at Texas Tech from 2000-02. Holgorsen was an assistant at Oklahoma State when the Cowboys beat Briles’ Bears in 2010.
It also will be the start of a challenging stretch for the Mountaineers, who play at No. 12 Texas and at Texas Tech the next two weeks.
“We get to open those guys up to the Big 12,” said Baylor safety Ahmad Dixon. “We get to show them how we perform in the Big 12. It’s their homecoming as well. We know that they’re going to be taking a lot of shots, so we have to stay focused and do what we have to do.”
