Howard throws 4 TDs, No. 12 West Virginia stomps TCU 34-10

27 October 2016

Oklahoma, the overwhelming favorite to repeat as Big 12 champion, lost to Houston in Week 1 and to Ohio State in Week 3.

The West Virginia football coaching staff has stressed the importance of building a dominating future defense with the class of 2017 and they hosted what could be a huge piece to that puzzle yesterday in DE Brendan Bordner.

"We played four snaps on defense in the third quarter", Gibson said. "I said the same thing in camp and I'm glad everybody else is starting to take notice as well". OK, no shots anymore, I'm done with that, but every week our kids come out and give it and are ready to work and fun to coach.

They're playing at a high level, too. Terrell has also ran for five touchdowns, which is tied for second on the team.

Virginia averaged just three yards per play while North Carolina racked up 7.3 yards per play en route to a 488-yard day on offense.

Skyler Howard threw four touchdowns passes against the hometown school that didn't recruit him as No. 12 West Virginia crushed TCU 34-10 on Saturday.

This one went the Mountaineers' way from the start.

"We had four or five guys drafted and playing in the National Football League off that team a year ago", Holgorsen said.

"We teach hard on getting the head up and getting the head to the side".

"I think our tackles have made a lot of improvements with pass protections", he added. They can score points and have shown they can win tough games, picking up a pair of close victories against BYU and Kansas State.

Samsung India will launch 4G phones, expects to gain market share
As part of the global recall, Samsung explained that faulty lithium-ion batteries were overheating, causing the devices to ignite. After the tragic happenings surrounding Samsung , there is high anticipation for the new installment of Galaxy Note.

Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy has a deep background in offense. However, looking back, the Mountaineers' defensive coordinator pointed out on Saturday the lack of experience the defense had at the time. And they didn't listen when everybody was saying we sucked, and they're not going to listen when everybody is saying we're good.

"Their (the Tar Heels') program is now more mature and farther along than ours", Mendenhall said. Hill completed 18 of 31 passes for a season-low 148 yards. Teammates Maurice Fleming and Jeremy Tyler also had interceptions. The Horned Frogs are making a rare trip outside of the Lone Star State as ten of the team's games are inside the state of Texas - another reason we have exposure issues in this tiny conference.

The Sooners rushed for 260 yards in their victory over the Horned Frogs earlier this season.

"That was crucial", senior cornerback Rasul Douglas said. "I'm not a referee so their call is better than mine, but I don't think it was targeting". On the ground, Rushel Shell rushed for 104 yards and two touchdownsin 21 carries while Kennedy McKoy had 99 yards in four attempts. The fans here are ridiculous and diehard. Even though West Virginia is inexperienced, it's hardly young. Howard ran for 89 yards and two scores and threw for 318 yards and another TD against Texas Tech. The Bears averaged 6.64 per play that season, and only one other team limited the Bears to below 5.7 yards a play in a game. "It's been a work in progress", Holgorsen said.

Previous meeting: The Horned Frogs beat the Mountaineers 40-10 last season in Fort Worth.

The Horned Frogs edged WVU, 31-30, the last time the teams played in Morgantown on November 1, 2014.

TCU coach Gary Patterson is normally a wizard after open weeks, winning 12 of his past 13 games after a bye. Play-makers to keep an eye on: TCU's Taj Williams is the key receiver with 506 yards on the season and 4 TDs with Shelton Gibson being WVU's go to with 472 yards and 2 TDs.

The Cowboys topped the Mountaineers in overtime, 33-26, last season on Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium.

"We worked wonderful together at Oklahoma State", Holgorsen said. "They just get it".
