WVU's Rose And Crook Prep For Texas

Texas is having a lackluster year by its lofty standards. But West Virginia, looking to improve its bowl standing and perhaps somehow get back in the Big 12 race, cannot overlook the sheer Longhorn talent.

TCU had consistent pressure on Clint Trickett with their strong front four. WVU created problems for Trevone Boykin, but did not get the rush they expected. Kyle Rose, the anchor of WVU's defensive line, said the team is not letting last Saturday's loss define their season, and is ready to get back on the field

For three quarters WVU's offensive line played solid, and handled TCU's defensive line with ease allowing one total sack. It was that same TCU front line that helped prevent the Mountaineers from running out the clock, and forced WVU to go 0-4 on third downs in said fourth quarter. West Virginia's Ron Crook said you have to play all four quarters to win the game, and expects his team to be ready for Texas.
