Embarrassment, disaster, exposed and collapse are just a few of the words you could use to sum up West Virginia’s poor performance in a 49-14 loss to Texas Tech in Lubbock in Week 7.
Not only did the Mountaineers look like they didn’t deserve a top-5 national ranking, they didn’t even look like they belonged on the same field as a Big 12 team.
West Virginia’s defense had one of the most terrible showings in school history, allowing the Red Raiders to accumulate 676 yards of total offense.
The Mountaineers offense didn’t play much better, as QB Geno Smith had his first truly bad game of the season.
There certainly weren’t any positives to take away from the game.
Here are a few of the lessons we learned from the loss.
