Big 12 football: West Virginia on upset alert vs. Baylor
Baylor has played against Dana Holgorsen's offense each of the last two seasons. Holgorsen was present the first time, as Oklahoma State's offensive coordinator in 2010. He was off to West Virginia the second time, in 2011, when the Cowboys continued to run Holgorsen's version of the Air Raid.

Baylor hasn't handled Holgorsen's offense well. OSU led 49-3 after three quarters last season and won 59-24. In 2010, OSU led 34-0 in the third quarter and won 55-28.
Now Holgorsen has a similar offense at West Virginia, with quarterback Geno Smith. Baylor will need a high-scoring duel to win.
But the Bears are capable. Quarterback Nick Florence has been salty in replacing Baylor legend Robert Griffin III. Flankers Terrance Williams and Tevin Reese both are averaging more than 100 yards receiving a game.
