Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia head coach Neal Brown spoke with the media immediately following the Mountaineers’ 43-40 upset win over the Baylor Bears. Here’s what Coach Brown had to say:
“I said the game would come down to 3 things: 1.) Turnover margin, which we won. 2.) Who could establish the run game, which we did. 3.) Scoring touchdowns in the redzone, which we did well enough.
Brown continued: “I’m proud of our group, proud of our team. We overcame adversity and our guys showed a lot of grit. It was a big win for us tonight.”
Brown also added that he feels the Mountaineers can still make noise for the remainder of the season. “I think the demise (of our team) is getting ahead of itself,” Brown said. “I mean, we’ve won 3 of 4. The conference is going to be wide open. Winning close games really helps our confidence. I hope this leads to us going on a run now. We have Texas Tech next week and we need to go out there and win that one too.”
