West Virginia’s defense has taken a massive step forward in 2020. Today, Pro Football Focus revealed just how great the unit has been this season with their grading system.


According to PFF, WVU is the only team in the Power Five whose defense has graded out 90+ in both pass coverage and run defense. In the up-tempo Big 12, this is a most impressive feat. The Mountaineers have been solid under Jordan Lesley all season long, and have only continued to get better.

West Virginia will have another chance to flex their defensive muscles when they play TCU this Saturday. The game is scheduled to kickoff at noon, and will be televised on FOX.
