WVU’s Passing Defense is No Better

WVU’s defense has struggled mightily against the pass in 2023.

Morgantown, WV – Coming into the 2023 season, the Mountaineer coaching staff has been adamant that the defense will be improved. One area that was expected to see the most improvement was the secondary that finished as one of the worst in the country in 2022.

Well, that trend has not changed.

Just two games into 2023, the WVU defense currently ranks 110th against the pass out of 132 FBS teams (281.5 yards per game).

As we all know, this will lose you many games in the Big 12 – especially against the high-powered offenses in the conference. If this does not get corrected quickly, we could be facing a long season in Morgantown.
