Which Texas will Mountaineers get?

Texas will play its fifth home game of the season Saturday when it plays host to No. 24 West Virginia, and about all that’s certain is the two teams will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on Fox Sports 1.

The rest? Good luck with that.

“That’s why I say, ‘What team am I going to get today?’” Texas first-year coach Charlie Strong said.

The Longhorns are 2-2 at home this season. They opened the season with a 38-7 win against North Texas and then lost a week later to BYU, 41-7. They returned home five weeks later and to lost to Baylor 28-7. Two weeks after that, they beat Iowa State 48-45.

Texas (4-5, 3-3 Big 12) has shut out a team and been shut out this season and it happened within conference play. It defeated Kansas 23-0 and four weeks later lost to No. 9 Kansas State 23-0. That was the school’s first shutout loss since 2004, but it was followed with the 34-13 win on the road against the Red Raiders.

The Longhorns have won games by 31, 23, 3 and 23 points and lost by 31, 3, 21, 5 and 23.
