Bolstering the Virginia offense is running back Justin Crawford who is averaging 101.5 rushing yards per game, with seven touchdowns.
On the defensive front, West Virginia is allowing 27.8 points and 453.8 yards per game and is led by Al-Rasheed Benton with 52 tackles.
Speaking of the stats, it should be an easy win for the Mountaineers on Saturday.
Baylor(0-6) still looking for their first win of the season were near to a victory last week against Oklahoma State. The Bears suffered a 49-41 loss but Baylor fought the No. 3 Sooners for longer than most critics expected.
Sophomore QB Zach Smith still needs to tune up in his play as he only completed 11 of 28 passes for 127 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. Smith was replaced by freshman Charlie Brewer later into the game but even him didn’t play that better. Smith is expected to start again on Saturday against West Virginia.
