Premium Videos: Texas Week

While there was plenty of reason for West Virginia's offense to celebrate another 10-touchdown effort in Saturday's 70-63 win over Baylor, the players on defense were initially down in the mouth. Safety Darwin Cook said he didn't even want to talk to some of his former teammates out of embarrassment.

Offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh said while Texas is known for its talented defensive ends -- Jackson Jeffcoat and Alex Okafor -- the defensive tackles pose a threat as well.

While the defense hung its head a bit last Saturday night after the Baylor game, film review confirmed all the team's mistakes were of the correctable sort, according to linebacker Doug Rigg.

The Mountaineers' offensive player of the week, center Joey Madsen, said he was looking forward to claiming his reward -- a T-shirt -- and wearing it around to claim superiority over his teammates along the offensive line.
