Texas at West Virginia: Longhorns survive trip to Morgantown in OT, 47-42


For those that were waiting to fire up the “Fire Mack Brown” engines, hold off for yet another week.

 

The Texas Longhorns traveled to Morgantown to take on the West Virginia Mountaineers on Saturday night and they came out still unbeaten in the Big 12, albeit in a close one, 47-42., still fulfilling the prophecy of Mack saying that this team could run the table in the conference after their 1-2 start.

QB Case McCoy was effective once again for the Longhorns as he continues to show some bit of improvement in running the offense in the absence of starter David Ash. McCoy finished the game with 283 yards and three touchdown passes.

Now, the Longhorns are firmly in position to take control of things in the Big 12, but their final three games are a rough slate.

Upcoming, the ‘Horns have dates with Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and the currently undefeated Baylor Bears.

Can wins in those three games be enough to save the job of Brown, even with the hiring of a new AD earlier this week?
