West Virginia Mountaineers at Texas Tech Red Raiders
Time: 3 p.m. ET
Channel: Fox Sports 1
Analysis: Today is a big challenge for the Mountaineers. The Red Raiders have been a thorn in WVU’s side since Neal Brown has taken over. With a win today, it would set the stage for a huge showdown with TCU next weekend. A loss and this thing could get out of hand quickly with the upcoming schedule.
Expect WVU’s offense to do what they’ve done all season. The fate of this game rests solely on the defense. With the return of Charles Woods expected, a struggling secondary will get a much needed shot in the vein. Third down stops and limiting explosive passing plays will be key.
