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.

“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.”

    Run game starts up front. The big boys need to be as good in the run as they are in passing downs. It’s all leverage and angles to get our RB’s past the line and into the second level. It’s not all brute strength. That comes on the mano a mano battles inside the 5 or 4th and 1 situations. 3.9 yds/rush won’t get us very far.

    Holgs :::: Pressure from the DL helps your pass D more than anything.

    Well now….. Is he talking 3 man line pressure? 4 man DL can give pressure much more.

    3 man front allows for disguising who is rushing. I’m ok with 3 man front as long as only a 3 man rush is used sparingly. Though, last year taking foot off the blitz and leaving more back in coverage turned the tide and won the game for the Mountaineers against the Red Raiders.
