Texas vs. West Virginia score update: Longhorns trail 14-7

Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After one quarter of play, Texas trails West Virginia 14-7.

This game had the chance to be a shootout based off of what the Texas Longhorns and West Virginia Mountaineers did last week, but after one quarter of play that is not the case as West Virginia leads just 14-7. The lone Texas touchdown came on their first possession of the game, and it was a lengthy eight play, 83 yard drive that was ultimately scored on a 1-yard run by Joe Bergeron.

With the game tied at seven points apiece, Texas decided to go for it at the West Virginia 44-yard line on fourth down, and Texas quarterback David Ash's pass was incomplete. That change of possession allowed the Mountaineers to have excellent field position which they took advantage of to go up 14-7.

On that West Virginia drive they went for it twice on fourth down, and converted both times. The second fourth down attempt was initially stopped, but the Texas sideline called a timeout. On the replay of the down, West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith completed an intermediate pass to Tavon Austin who proceeded to go 40 yards to the endzone and put give them a 14-7 lead.

Austin has already hurt the Texas defense with three receptions for 55 yards, plus 111 yards in the return game.
