Stats that matter: West Virginia vs. Texas
October, 3, 2012

Numbers, it's said, rarely lie. With that thought in mind, HornsNation -- with a healthy assist from the ESPN Stats and Info crew -- will dig into the numbers each week and pull three stats that could play a significant role in the outcome of Texas' game. This week the focus is on West Virginia, quarterback Geno Smith and the high powered Mountaineers offense.
West Virginia has 27 touchdown passes in its last five games -- dating back to the Orange Bowl of 2011 -- which is nine more that any other FBS team. Baylor is second with 18. One other thing to consider when looking at the explosiveness of the WVU offense is that in that five game span it has put up 70 points twice. They did it in the Orange Bowl against Clemson and last week against Baylor.
