For the second year in a row, the Mountaineers fell to the Longhorns in heart-pounding fashion. Texas won a defensive battle, 17-13.
However, the referees missed a blatant pass interference call when the Texas defender rode Ali Jennings in the end zone on West Virginia’s final drive of the game. The ball should have been placed at the 1-yard line, and WVU would’ve had a great chance to score and take the lead.
Jarret Doege had his third-straight 300-yard passing game, but the offense was for the most part very bland all evening. Defensively, West Virginia was able to hold Texas, but it just wasn’t enough to escape the poor officiating throughout the game.
WVU takes on TCU next Saturday in Morgantown. Kickoff time will be announced at a later time, and the game will be televised on FOX.
