Texas Longhorns College Football Betting

Neal Brown was a prospect when he was named head coach of the West Virginia Mountaineers in 2019. Brown led the Troy Trojans to three consecutive double-digit win seasons and bowl wins before taking over in Morgantown. But as we have seen with other Group of Five winners, they find the Power Five a much more difficult lift. Brown is on the hot seat after posting just one winning record in his first three seasons to go with a stumbling start to the 2022 campaign. The breaking point for many Mountaineer fans was an overtime home loss to the Kansas Jayhawks. West Virginia fans wonder why the worst program in the country has gotten so good so fast while the Mounties tread water. This week comes a difficult assignment at the Texas Longhorns.

Texas Longhorns Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Texas Longhorns of the Big 12 Conference will host the West Virginia Mountaineers of the Big 12 Conference. Kickoff time at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium is at 7:30 p.m. ET, with television coverage on FS1.

Gamblers will not be thrilled about stepping into the Texas Longhorns with a West Virginia team that is not performing consistently well. But Wise Guys don’t want to lay too many points with the Longhorns. Texas has had its own issues with consistency.

Last game, the West Virginia Mountaineers won 33-10 at the Virginia Tech Hokies, 2.5-point road favorites. The game went under the total of 49.5. West Virginia has a record of 2-2 straight up, 3-1 against the spread, and 3-1 over/under the total. West Virginia ranks 21st for total offense, 48th for passing, 20th for rushing, and 14th for scoring. Defensively they rank 23rd overall, 46th against the pass, 26th against the rush, and 86th for points allowed. Also, West Virginia ranks 78th for fewest turnovers lost and 115th for takeaways. JT Daniels threw for 203 yards and a touchdown to lead West Virginia to a much-needed win at Virginia Tech last Thursday night. Freshman CJ Donaldson rushed for 106 yards, and West Virginia got a strong performance from its defense to win its second straight game after losing the first two.

Donaldson's performance marked his third 100-yard effort in four games. The 240-pound back came to West Virginia as a tight end, but the staff moved him to tailback. Behind Donaldson and Johnson Jr., who rushed for 83 yards, West Virginia amassed 218 yards on the ground and moved to 15-2 under Brown when rushing for at least 100 yards.

Texas Longhorns Weekly Recap

Last game, the Texas Longhorns lost 37-34 against the Texas Tech Red Raiders as 7-point road favorites. The game went over the total of 60. Texas has a record of 2-2 straight up, 3-1 against the spread, and 2-2 over/under the total. Texas ranks 74th for total offense, 73rd for passing, 66th for rushing, and 42nd for scoring. Defensively they rank 75th overall, 86th against the pass, 64th against the rush, and 54th for points allowed. Also, Texas ranks 33rd for fewest turnovers lost and 104th for takeaways.

Trey Wolff kicked a 20-yard field goal in overtime, lifting the Red Raiders over No. 22 Texas after they overcame a two-touchdown deficit in the second half but let a lead slip away in the final minute Saturday. Texas' Bijan Robinson fumbled on the first play of overtime, and Donovan Smith led the Red Raiders to the 2-yard line before Wolff's winning kick in the Big 12 opener for both teams.

The Red Raiders thought Wolff's 45-yard kick for a 34-31 lead with 21 seconds left in regulation was enough for their first home win over Texas since Michael Crabtree's last-second catch beat the top-ranked Longhorns in 2008. But Bert Auburn's 48-yard kick as time expired forced OT.

Texas Tech beat the Longhorns in a Big 12 opener for the first time in six tries and ended a six-game home losing streak. Fans stormed the field after Wolff's winner.

Still limping at times because of the high ankle sprain sustained after starter Quinn Ewers sprained a clavicle against No. 1 Alabama, Card threw for 277 yards and two touchdowns with Ewers watching in uniform on the Texas sideline. Robinson had 101 yards and two TDs before the crippling mistake from the Heisman Trophy hopeful to start overtime.
