Re: Texas Longhorns Football - 2012
West Virginia 48 - Texas 45
West Virginia stepped up their game to the next level tonight, especially on defense. I did not believe that WVU was going to be able to pull of that level of improvement on defense after giving up 63 points to Baylor last week. But they did. The Miners are evolving before our eyes into a very good football team.
Texas on the other hand, continued to struggle on defense. There were a lot of missed tackles and far too many big plays. The pressure on the QB was reasonably good, but a lot of credit has to go to WVU QB Geno Smith, who will almost certainly be one of the early QB's taken in the NFL draft next year. He looked great.
The Horns did not look terrible, but they were certainly not as good as WVU was tonight. However, the Longhorns defense does appear to continue to be in need of some remedial improvements.
Next up, Oklahoma in Dallas, who put a 41-20 shellacking on Texas Tech tonight.
