MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The defense stinks. The offense is stuck in neutral.

Every game from here on out is a must-win or No. 25 West Virginia will likely fall short of its preseason goal of going to a BCS bowl.

A two-game losing streak is on hold temporarily as the Mountaineers (5-2, 2-2) use a bye week to pay closer attention to their many problems.

West Virginia went 1-2 in October, the first time since 2001 that the Mountaineers had a losing record in the month.

They have games against four of the six teams they are tied with or ahead of in the Big 12 standings, starting Nov. 3 at home against TCU (5-2, 2-2).
