Aggressive defense will be the theme when Texas visits West Virginia

West Virginia needs to bring the aggression on defense this Saturday.

Texas and West Virginia take on one another this Saturday, and both of these teams are consistent in one way: they are inconsistent. Oklahoma has looked outstanding all season long sans their loss to the Longhorns, but Charlie Strong's squad also lost to Iowa State.

West Virginia looked magnificent against Texas Tech and earlier this season, but stumbled mightily against the Big 12's elite. 

But one things these two have in common? Both coaching staffs stress the importance of aggressive defense. 

“They look like we look at times,” West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen told West. “They blitz as much and as many different ways as I've seen in a long time.”

It could be a low-scoring Saturday, for once, in the Big 12.
