We have all heard that everything is bigger in Texas, but the biggest thing in Texas this weekend may be the numbers on the scoreboard at Darrell K Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium when West Virginia and UT square off on Saturday.

WVU is coming off a shootout for the ages in its first-ever Big 12 Conference game against Baylor last Saturday. Led by quarterback Geno Smith, the Mountaineers exploded for 70 points and 807 yards of total offense.

Later that day, the Longhorns were in a shootout of their own against Oklahoma State. UT put up 41 points and used a touchdown from running back Joe Bergeron in the last minute to top the Cowboys.

Here are the keys for West Virginia to avoid being bucked to the dirt by the Longhorns on Saturday.
