There were, despite the score, some bright spots for the Mountaineers, including the play of quarterback-turned-receiver David Sills, an improved Skyler Howard, and a defense that hung in until wilting in the third quarter. But there were bad stretches, such as the one on offense at the end of the second quarter and the defense allowing scores on fourth and three and third and 15 in the third quarter to turn at least a puncher's chance into a knockout for Baylor. Calling it the best Bears team he has ever seen, Holgorsen details some of the issues, gives his thoughts on Howard and discusses the positives and negatives on all three sides of the ball in detailing a third consecutive loss to start Big 12 play - and entering a needed open date prior to the match-up at No. 3 TCU.
West Virginia suffered its third consecutive loss to open Big 12 play in a 62-38 defeat at No. 2 Baylor.
