Offensive Outlook: WVU vs Oklahoma State

The offense, seemingly the story for much of the season, has taken a backset to West Virginia's defense of late. But coordinator Shannon Dawson's squad faces a stout run defense in Oklahoma State, and a secondary beginning to get healthy just in time for the Mountaineers.

Here, Dawson delves into his thoughts on the Cowboys, their ability to limit the rush game in key situations despite allowing 150 yards per contest in that area, what he expects from a back end which is improving, both in execution and health, and his film review of Baylor and how the Mountaineers have developed within the run game since he began working with this offensive scheme.

Line coach Ron Crook, below, praises his line's performance, talks about the satisfaction of being able to finish a game on the ground, and gets into the need to refocus up front against OSU and how the Mountaineers can continue to progress as the season moves into its final five games.

Cody Clay, who provided key blocking in two- and three-back power sets to finish off Baylor - as well as earlier in the game - discusses WVU's run game progress, what makes this squad, across the board, better able to take advantage of rush and end-game clock situations, the maturity of the offense and what he expects from Oklahoma State.
