WVU Offensive Outlook: TCU

West Virginia's offense made more plays than it missed last week against Oklahoma State. But as the players and coaches note here, the consistency will be a key against a TCU defense that leads the Big 12 in six statistical categories.

Here, running backs coach JaJuan Seider speaks to the consistency and intensity of the Mountaineer run game, the ability for any back to contribute, his pregame thoughts on Dreamius Smith breaking a big play and the importance of pass blocking when facing a tenacious front four in TCU's 4-2-5 scheme.

Smith, who capped West Virginia's 34-10 win at Oklahoma State with a 40-yard touchdown run, delves into the necessity of making plays in the game to warrant additional carries, how he stays mentally and physically prepped when awaiting snaps, WVU's pass blocking and how he believes it matches up against a TCU program that has led the nation in total defense in five of the last 14 seasons.

Kevin White, who had just three catches for 27 yards - including a 19-yard touchdown to open the scoring - notes that he doesn't expect the same bracket coverage that OSU utilized. TCU, he says, plays a significant amount of cover four, and that should give him an opportunity for better plays down the field.
