West Virginia had two weeks to process getting annihilated by Iowa State, thanks to a much-needed bye in Week 8. Back at home in Week 9 for a date with Baylor, the Mountaineers exploded on offense and put the game away before halftime.

It was 44-0 in the third quarter before Baylor finally scored, as West Virginia dropped 31 points on the Bears in the second stanza. Will Greer finally got back to playing turnover-free ball while passing for 353 yards and three touchdowns. The run game added three more touchdowns, and the defense forced four turnovers.

This dominant win won’t erase what happened two weeks back, but it’s definitely what the doctor ordered as the Mountaineers continue to push their way back up the rankings.
