Grier throws for four touchdowns in West Virginia's win over K

Grier throws for four touchdowns in West Virginia's win over K

His goal, however, remains the same as it has been all year.

McCrane's second field goal of the game, a 43-yarder later in the first quarter, was the 55th of his career, passing Martin Gramatica and setting a school record.

Ultimately, of course, you begin dreaming of playing in the national championship game and if that slides away, as it does for every team in the nation but two, then to make it to the Big 12 championship game.

The last game of the regular season will be one of the toughest all season.

While they were helped by TCU being beaten by Oklahoma, it didn't help enough.

West Virginia finally got a first down - on a 75-yard touchdown pass from Grier to White - on the first play of the ensuing drive.

That would leave them at 7-2 and Oklahoma at 7-2, considering it is unfathomable that the Sooners will be upset by Kansas next week. But if the Cowboys or Horned Frogs lose, that would propel the Mountaineers back into contention for one of the two spots in Arlington.

While the offense was quiet in the second half- they did not score a point- the defense was very productive.

Russia's RT America registers as 'foreign agent' in US
FARA was first passed in 1938 in the lead up to World War Two in an effort to combat German propaganda efforts. RT said it complied with a US demand to make the filing by November 13 or face prosecution.

The Longhorns stand at 5-5 in 2017, but note that three of their losses have come to USC and Oklahoma State in overtime, and by only five to conference leader Oklahoma.

If TCU and Oklahoma State both win their remaining games, they would finish at 7-2 along with WVU and Oklahoma and both own victories over West Virginia. Texas has a number of players that they can roll into the game and depth on all sides. If two teams are tied for second place, the victor of their head-to-head game goes to the game.

Despite not scoring in the second half, it was another successful day for Grier at quarterback. The team or teams with the lowest difference between points scored and points allowed in games vs. the tied teams is eliminated from consideration.

Numbers ... we got numbers, lots and lots of numbers.

The West Virginia University football team pulled out their first ever win in Manhattan, Kansas on Saturday against the Kansas State Wildcats. It wouldn't matter as the ball found a wide open Ka'Raun White for a 30-yard touchdown. But the touchdown pass to White on the final play of the half allowed the Mountaineers to take an 8-point lead into the locker room. The second touchdown, early in the second quarter, was a 16-yard diving catch by David Sills.

I am sure there are many college football fans out there that do not believe West Virginia has a chance in the world to win out in their final two games, including some Mountaineer fans.

Justin Crawford had another strong game after being a bit banged up in the middle part of the season.
