Holgorsen: Run Game, Matching Pace Important Factors For WVU
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen recaps items from the Kansas State game and provides a look ahead to resurgent Texas Tech in Tuesday’s meeting with the media at the Milan Puskar Center.
West Virginia has won on its last two trips to Lubbock after being upset on a 2012 trip when it was also undefeated and nationally ranked.
Holgorsen: "There are a lot of times Will (Grier) checks into a play and we don't know what he's checking. We have a lot of confidence in him." #WVU

“We didn’t run the ball very well against them last year,” Holgorsen said as he provided his initial views on the game. “We have to get that going this year.”
The Mountaineers rushed for just 44 yards on 29 carries in last year’s 46-35 win in Morgantown.
The Red Raiders have been amping up their already quick pace in recent weeks, and played at warp speed in their blitzing of Oklahoma State.
“Tech went really really really fast against Oklahoma State.” Holgorsen observed. “That’s what they have decided they are going to be. We have to be ready for that.”
