Probably a good plan as the Mountaineers are averaging 41 points per home contest this year. However, the Bulls do have a fast defense that was able to keep the Mountianeers in check outside of a couple big plays last year. It remains to be seen how the team will respond after last weeks tough loss to Louisville.
For the second consecutive week, head coach Jim Leavitt emphasized that the offense must answer West Virginia and put points on the board. The defense ran out of gas in the second half against Louisville and can’t afford to be on the field as long as it was Saturday night.
“We are probably facing the best quarterback and running back in the country this week,” Leavitt said. “We have our hands full and we know that if we play the way we did last week that we don’t have a shot.”
In other news, former USF assistant and former Philadelphia Eagles strong safety Andre Waters has passed away. We don't make fun of that. Our prayers go out to the Bulls and Waters family.
