Does Texas’ Loss Impact Your Feelings Heading into Matchup with Mountaineers?



Seeing a team lose right before you play them can make people think they’re vulnerable, but there’s also the thought of some that they are then due for a win. That’s now the case for West Virginia as they prepare for Texas.

The Long Horns, who entered their Week 4 game against Texas Tech ranked 22nd and 2-1 with their only loss being a 1-point heartbreaker to Alabama, fell to the Red Raiders by the score of 37-34 in overtime. The game saw Texas Tech outscore Texas 13-3 in the fourth quarter and overtime combined.

On the other hand, WVU, also now 2-2, is coming off their biggest win of the season and a successful defense of the Black Diamond Trophy over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.

Biggest Takeaways from Virginia Tech Win: West Virginia Can Save Season

At the end of the day, all that matters is who plays better on Saturday, not what either team did against another opponent the week before or at any other point this season.

But does the fact Texas lost the game right before, make you feel better, worse or maybe just indifferent about the matchup between the Long Horns and Mountaineers?

How do you feel from WVU perspective about Texas’ loss to Texas Tech?
