In a marquee matchup of top-ranked teams in the Big 12, No. 11 Texas (4-0, 1-0) and No. 8 West Virginia (4-0, 1-0) will meet in a conference showdown that will test the resolve of both teams.

Offensively, the two sides boast the top-rated passers in the country. Defensively, both have had their respective problems.

The Mountaineers, led by senior quarterback and Heisman candidate Geno Smith, feature a wealth of talent, chemistry and experience across the board offensively.

Scoring on Dana Holgorsen's defense should not be a problem.

Baylor poured on 63 points last weekend, only to get one-upped by a touchdown in a losing effort.

Here are five keys for the Longhorns' matchup with West Virginia.
