10/01/13 - West Virginia will gain attention for starting yet another quarterback, Clint Trickett, and producing a stunning upset behind the arm of the Florida State transfer. Still, the defense played surprisingly well in the Oklahoma State win, forcing 10 punts and three turnovers, as well as a goal-line stand in the fourth quarter with the outcome in doubt and the Cowboys looking to go ahead.
More important was the opportunistic characteristics of the defense, which produced a 58-yard touchdown off an interception by cornerback Ishmael Banks and also sealed the win with an interception by safety Darwin Cook. Defensive end Dontrill Hyman came up with another huge play, dumping OSU's Jeremy Smith for a 5-yard loss and nearly causing a fumble to key the goal-line stand in the fourth quarter, which ended with the Cowboys missing a 23-yard field goal. "Golly, (the defense) played well," Holgorsen said. "They created turnovers. They stuck people. They made plays in key situations. They set up scores." Remember too that last season, it was the defense that prevented West Virginia from capitalizing on the most productive offense in the program's history as the Mountaineers went just 7-6 and lost five straight Big 12 games at one point. - The Sports Xchange
