West Virginia picked up its seventh straight win against Maryland with a 31-21 victory at Mountaineer Field today.

The Mountaineers offense looked pretty sloppy, but they got the big plays from QB Geno Smith and WR Tavon Austin when they needed them.

Smith completed 30 of his 43 passes for 338 yards and threw three touchdowns—all of them to Austin, who finished with 13 catches for 170 yards.

Maryland deserves credit for coming in prepared for a battle. However, this game was really about West Virginia’s struggles.

Dana Holgorsen and the rest of the coaching staff have a lot of work to do this week, because Big 12 play officially kicks off next Saturday against Baylor.
