Huge win for West Virginia. The game was tight, in keeping with the Law of Gus. Both defenses did well given the circumstances. Here is the turning point. Alex Okafor stripped Geno Smith deep in West Virginia territory, but Texas could not turn it into points. A bad snap knocked the Longhorns out of chip shot range. Penn State transfer Anthony Fera missed a 41-yarder to tie the game.
The reason here is pretty nifty.

The Utes won’t make it because they played Ball State. Makes sense.
