Baylor at WVU football matchup preview

West Virginia looks to lick its wounds after its biggest loss of the season to Texas on Oct. 1. After opening the season with a pair of one-possession losses, WVU traveled to Austin and fell to the Longhorns by 18 points and took several injuries in the process.

Most notably, the Mountaineers will be without running back CJ Donaldson on Thursday. WVU’s leading rusher suffered a scary injury to his head and neck area and was carted off the field before entering concussion protocol.

Baylor also eyes a bounce-back victory after a disappointing loss to Oklahoma State, the Bears’ first loss in the conference this season that knocked them out of the AP top 25.

BU has had one of the top defenses in the Big 12 this season, ranking second in yards allowed and third in scoring. The Bears, who give up less than 100 yards per game, have an opportunity when they face the battered rushing offense of WVU, which gains 186.2 per game.
