It could be offensive chaos when OSU meets familiar West Virginia

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorson reacts to a play against Baylor in the first half of an NCAA college football game Saturday Oct. 21 2017 in Waco Texas

On Saturday afternoon, West Virginia and Oklahoma State will clash in a Big 12 game that has implications for the top of the conference.

The injuries have mounted on the offensive line for Oklahoma State.

"This will be the best passing quarterback that we've faced this year", said Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy.

Neither offense was as efficient last Saturday. The defense puts a lid on an explosive Oklahoma State offense, although they will be contained they will not be shut down. The No. 22 Mountaineers beat Baylor in Waco 38-36. The makeup of both teams is awfully similar.

The Cowboys are coming off a tough 13-10 overtime win over Texas and West Virginia survived a furious comeback by Baylor. "One thing they do, they're going to run eight or 10 plays, and they're going to have a two- or three-play wrinkle every Saturday". West Virginia are below.

This season, he ranks first in the country in passing yards, first in passing yards per game, second in yards per completion, third in passing efficiency and fourth in points responsible for.

The Oklahoma defense has had its weaknesses, especially in the run game, but they now rank 3 in the Big XII in total defense (359.7 ypg).

Gundy still is so tuned in to Holgorsen's thinking he can scrutinize West Virginia game video and immediately know the trends.

The Mountaineer offense has been able to fill up the stat sheet against some of the better defenses in the country ranking them 5 in the country in total offense (539.4 ypg), and I don't expect that to change this weekend.

One of the guys Grier is chasing is Rudolph, a Rock Hill, South Carolina, resident who grew up not too far down the road from where Grier grew up in Davidson, North Carolina. Grier is fourth nationally at 352 yards a contest.

Before that, the other marquee quarterback matchups were fairly sparse. Probably not as good of a runner or doesn't run as much.

"You go to that point up 25 to being in the situation that we were in will teach you a lot on the fact that you can never be complacent, you can never relax", Holgorsen said. "He can make all the throws from in the pocket and is a hard challenge".

Milan Puskar Stadium has provided a venue for many top-notch college quarterbacks since it first opened in 1980, but there have not been that many featuring two pro-level passers on this field at the same time. Before UT, Washington had seven straight games of at least 98 yards. It wasn't the offensive-powered matchup everyone expected, as a combined 23 points were scored.
