The Mountaineers have not really played anyone of note yet, and it shows. Maryland gave them a scare, but with the potent duo of Geno Smith and Tavon Austin continuing to be a puzzle for defenses, this unit will continue to produce at a high level.
If you are a hater, you call it the system. The reality is there, however, that Geno Smith is putting up some dazzling numbers. He has yet to throw an interception, has thrown 12 touchdowns, has rushed for another and has thrown for over 1,000 yards on the season.
Offensive Line: B
The offensive line has been excellent protecting Smith, allowing only two sacks. While they don't run as often as some, when Dana Holgorsen decides to put down the energy drink long enough to consider a run play, they are effective, leading the team to a 10.1 yards per carry average.
Wide Receivers/Tight Ends: A+
While USC's receivers get all the press, Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin continue to light up scoreboards. The two have combined 10 ten touchdowns through the air and almost 700 combined receiving yards. The rest of the unit continues to take advantage of defenses that cheat in coverage, especially J.D. Woods.
Running Backs: B
As mentioned, these backs don't get to run all that often. They do a solid job, but when the defense is expecting pass three quarters of the time, you might expect more production. Andrew Buie does a great job of being involved in the passing game for the 'Eers, if you want to look for a positive.
