3 … quarterbacks will get reps in practice this week for West Virginia.
15.5 … WVU points scored per game through two games. That number ranks the Mountaineers 109th of 124 Division-1 teams. It is also exactly 24 points per game less than WVU averaged last season (39.5 ppg, 9th).
16.5 … points allowed per game through two games. That number ranks the Mountaineers 31st of 124 Division-1 teams. It is also exactly 21.6 points per game less than WVU allowed last season (38.1 ppg, 117th).
(Talk about flipping the script.)
0 … WVU passing touchdowns vs. Oklahoma; the first time since Dec. 1, 2011 vs. USF that WVU didn’t throw a touchdown pass. WVU has just one touchdown pass through two games; through two games last year they had 10.
75 … Dreamius Smith’s 75-yard touchdown run was the longest rush by a Mountaineer since an 80-yard reverse to Tavon Austin in the snow vs. Rutgers in 2011.
20 … less rushes vs. Sooners (24) than vs. William & Mary (44). WVU hasn’t flipped the run-to-pass ratio that drastically (-20 from one game to the next) since vs. Rutgers (45 rushes) and NC State (25) in 2010.
12 … punts so far for newcomer Nick O’Toole. That number is already 27.2% of the 44 punts WVU kicked last season. It took five weeks to get 12 punts in 2012. (By the way, Boomstick has already punted the ball a third of a mile.)
24 … WVU rushes were less than even any game last year when the offense was pass-heavy. Only one other time under Dana Holgorsen has WVU run fewer times in a game (vs. LSU in 2011, 22 rushes).
5 … WVU turnovers in two games has the Mountaineers ranked 105th in the FBS. It took seven weeks last year to rack up five turnovers.
5 … turnovers created by the WVU defense in two games is the most to open a season since 2005.
8 … total turnovers in the WVU/Oklahoma game were the most in any Mountaineer game since a 10-turnover combo in a 21-13 upset loss to USF during the 2007 season.
