The Mountaineers were a hard team to get a read on before their game against the Bears. They barely survived FCS William and Mary, played tough against highly ranked Oklahoma in Norman, was obliterated by Maryland, and then beat ranked Okie State at home. It was clear they were not the offensive blitzkrieg that they were in 2012, playing musical quarterbacks to find a someone who Holgy could trust to run his system. They were playing much better defensively, though, holding both Oklahoma schools to below average point totals.
The Baylor Bears, on the other hand, had been storming through their OOC like my two year old nephew and a block tower. But they were still considered unproven to most as Wofford, Buffalo and ULM were not seen as the toughest of competition (a fair assessment).
WVU was supposed to be their first "real" test of the season and many predicted that the Bears would get slowed down by the WVU defense. That was not the case as Baylor broke multiple offensive team records against the Mountaineers: (1) 73 points in a game (2) 872 total offensive yards (3) 369 offensive yards in the 1st quarter alone.
