Holgorsen Short But Not Sweet On WVU’s Performance In Win


LAWRENCE, Kan. – It was short, but it certainly wasn’t sweet.

Head coach Dana Holgorsen dissected the offensive lapses, the defensive miscues and the overall issue of apathy and focus in West Virginia’s ho-hum 56-34 win at Kansas. The Jayhawks, down 35-10 in the second quarter, staged a second half comeback, getting to within 42-34 before the Mountaineers were able to again generate offense and pull away for the 22-point victory.

Holgorsen, below, delves into the third quarter that saw KU outscore the Mountaineers 17-0, and what finally clicked in for a team stagnant on offense and missing half of its defensive starters late in giving up an all-time school record for rushing yards by a single player at 291 by Kansas’ Khalil Herbert.
