However, the emergence of the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Big 12 means another huge challenge for the Mountaineers just one week after the seven-point loss to the Frogs. After beating Kansas 65-19 in Lawrence last week, the Red Raiders checked in at No. 24 in the poll.
Plenty of football is left on Texas Tech's schedule, including games against top-15 teams in the form of TCU and Oklahoma. West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen is 3-1 against Texas Tech's Kliff Kingsbury. The Red Raiders have forced 14 turnovers through five games - the seventh most in the nation and the most for the Red Raiders in five games since 2005.
Everything looks to be in place for the Mountaineers to make some noise in the Big 12.
Texas Tech also ranks fifth nationally with a turnover margin of 1.80 per game.
Texas Tech ran for 313 yards as a team. Defensively, Texas Tech football yields 27.8 points and 437.4 total yards (299.0 in passing and 138.4 in rushing per game).

Now it's up to Grier, who is averaging almost 350 passing yards per game, to put this WVU offense in a position to keep pace and light up the Tech secondary, while avoiding the game-changing interception and turnovers that have helped the Red Raiders get off to their 4-1 start.
Allen recorded his second interception of the season one week ago against Kansas. And, that could start with a big win over Texas Tech. And while this Tech team has done a good job limiting turnovers, it leads the Big 12 with three turnovers in the red zone.
Through five games, the Mountaineers offense ranked third nationally with 577.4 yards per game, while now ninth in scoring at 43.8.
West Virginia will come out strong after losing to TCU. Quarterback Will Grier has played well enough to garner at least one big win.
