WVU at Texas matchup preview
West Virginia is on a good run, having won five of its last seven games. One of those two losses, though, came at the hands of Rodney Terry’s Longhorn squad.
The first leg of the series was close as neither team led by more than single digits. In fact, West Virginia even held a two-point lead at halftime, but WVU’s lack of ball security came to haunt the Mountaineers in the end as Texas pulled away just enough to earn a road win.
Since then, both teams have had some strong performances. Texas, however, is coming off a loss, falling to Kansas by eight points on the road.
WVU, on the other hand, just completed its second win over a ranked opponent since its meeting with Texas. When it heads to Austin, it aims for its first ranked win away from home.
