“I don't remember the last time we lost two games in a row, but it's the reality of this situation,” said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. “Every game is going to be tough.”

The Mountaineers were steamrolled at Texas Tech 49-14, then lost at home to Kansas State 55-14.

During a bye week last Saturday, “a lot of our guys turned the TV on and saw Kansas State win another big game,” Holgorsen said. “Unfortunately, it was against Texas Tech, that was our other loss prior.”

Holgorsen laughed. Probably good therapy for the Mountaineers and Frogs as they adjust to life in the Big 12.
