The West Virginia Mountaineers and Texas Longhorns meet Saturday in week 5 college football action at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium. The West Virginia Mountaineers look to get a game above a .500 record. The Texas Longhorns also look to get to a 3-2 record.

The West Virginia Mountaineers have lost 5 of their last 8 road games. JT Daniels is completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 956 yards, 7 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Bryce Ford-Wheaton and Kaden Prather have combined for 539 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns, while Sam James has 13 receptions.

Lee Kpogba leads the West Virginia Mountaineers with 24 tackles, Dante Stills has 2.5 sacks and Jacolby Spells has 1 interception.

The Texas Longhorns have won 6 of their last 9 home games. Hudson Card is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 620 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. Xavier Worthy and Jordan Whittington have combined for 411 receiving yards and 1 touchdown, while Bijan Robinson has 8 receptions.

The Mountaineers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The Longhorns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Mountaineers last 7 games in October. The under is 7-3 in Longhorns last 10 games overall. The Mountaineers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Texas. The road team is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

The West Virginia Mountaineers appear to have gotten their act together these last two weeks, but the way they opened the year is hard to forget. We're waiting for WVU to make its mind up on if it's a good or subpar team. The Texas Longhorns have been far and away more consistent this season, and there's a chance they get their quarterback back in Quinn Ewers. West Virginia has a little more to prove to me. Give me Texas in a comfortable home victory.
