West Virginia has been close against Oklahoma every time the teeams have played in the Big 12. But until the Mountainers begin winning some games, the biggest of statistics is that 0-4 series record the seniors carry as a blemish. Holgorsen, above, details some of the issues on all three sides that combined to make not only an upset unlikely, but near impossible after a rash of turnovers in the fourth quarter. Holgorsen discussed the offensive play calls, the lack of field position, the apparent lack of comfort for quarterback Skyler Howard, the issues early for the defense and his approach in balancing aggressiveness with the need to protect the ball against a skilled Oklahoma secondary - and in the face of a pass rush that affected Howard and his offfensive line throughout the game.
With the Mountaineers unable to overcome an early avalanche of miscues, where was the team hurt most?
