The Mountaineers did their faithful fans a solid favor by delivering a complete, well-executed, relatively stress-free home game on Saturday in Morgantown as they took down one of the top teams in the Big 12; the Kansas State Wildcats.
Let’s take a look at what else is going on around the Big 12 after Halloween weekend:
Texas at Oklahoma State: The mullet was humbled at home in an overtime thriller as the Longhorns tried desperately to prove that they are indeed “back.” The top-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns took their back-and-forth to overtime where the Longhorns snapped Oklahoma State’s undefeated streak.
Iowa State at Kansas: Les Miles and the Jayhawks are in for a long season as they are still struggling to find a win this season, and will likely see another winless season. The Cyclones gave up 22 points to the Jayhawks, but ultimately proved to be too much for Kansas and the Jayhawks are still winless.
Oklahoma at Texas Tech: The Sooners shut down the Red Raiders in Lubbock a week after Texas Tech looked a little lively in their upset over West Virginia. Oklahoma’s offense was too much for Texas Tech; scoring literally 40 more points than the home team. If Texas Tech keeps playing at this level, West Virginia’s loss is going to look fifty shades of ugly come end of November.
TCU at Baylor: Is it safe to say that Matt Rhule knew where the Bears program was heading and left at the right time? Baylor is 1-3 on the season and gave TCU a much-needed win as the Horned Frogs are used to being a more competitive team within the conference.
The Mountaineers travel to Austin, Texas for a noon ET kickoff against the Texas Longhorns. The matchup will be televised nationally on ABC, with both teams looking to make a statement for the remaining weeks of the 2020 season.
