Matchup Battle: Cowboys to Face David Long Jr., Tough Mountaineer Front

The matchup of West Virginia’s defensive front against Oklahoma State’s rushing attack will be a major difference maker this Saturday. The Cowboys are second in the conference in rushing while the Mountaineers are second in rush defense.

The Mountaineer defense has been inconsistent against the run. In WVU’s loss to Iowa State in October, the defense gave up 31 missed tackles and allowed David Montgomery to run for over 6.5 yards
