WVU Defense Struggles Against Baylor Attack

Posted:

WACO, TX. (WVVA) -- West Virginia University's defense is the latest victim of Baylor's high powered offense. The Bears scored 73 points and put up 864 yards of total offense. The performance is full of new records. The Bears had over six hundred yards of offense in the first half, including a 369 yard first quarter.

Baylor leads the nation in almost every offensive category. They're number one in total offense, number one in yards per game and yards per play. The next closet offensive attack belongs to Oregon and the Ducks are averaging 149 yards less than Baylor.

WVU Defensive Coordinator Keith Patterson told the Charleston Daily Mail, "We didn't do anything we set out to do. We couldn't stop the run. We couldn't stop the vertical shots. That was the key to the game."

The Mountaineers have a bye week then host Texas Tech, October 19.
