In just a couple of days, Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian will face an important test at home in Big 12 play against head coach Neal Brown and the West Virginia Mountaineers. Texas will be looking for its first win of Big 12 play after a disappointing start to the conference slate last weekend.

Sark and the Longhorns fell short to new head coach Joey McGuire and the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Big 12 opener on the road in Lubbock on Sep. 24, by the final score of 37-34 in overtime. The upset loss in overtime at the hands of Texas Tech last weekend gives Texas a record of 2-2 (0-1 Big 12) heading into this matchup against West Virginia in Week 5.

Meanwhile, West Virginia comes into this game with a record of 2-2 (0-1 Big 12) after a convincing 33-10 win on the road on Sep. 24 over the Virginia Tech Hokies. West Virginia dropped its first game of the Big 12 slate a few weeks ago, which came in overtime at home at the hands of the upstart Kansas Jayhawks.

Texas is set to host West Virginia at home at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin on Oct. 1, with the kickoff time set for 6:30 p.m. CT.

Here’s a look at the TV and streaming information for Week 5 between Texas and West Virginia.

Texas football vs. West Virginia series history and preview

Texas and West Virginia have played some close games in the past. West Virginia is also one of the few Power Five teams that the Longhorns face on a consistent basis of late that holds a winning record in this series history. West Virginia owns the edge over Texas in this series, with a record of 6-5-0.

Brown and the Mountaineers topped Sark and the Longhorns last season in Morgantown by a score of 31-23.

Most of the recent meetings between Texas and West Virginia were pretty close, especially the last two in Austin that were each literally decided in the final minute.

It feels like we’re charting a similar course for this game between these two teams. If Texas can get the likes of redshirt freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers and star sophomore wideout Xavier Worthy back in the fold this weekend, that would obviously be a big deal.

But the biggest factor will remain whether the Longhorns’ defense can actually get off the field on third and fourth down and if this staff will have this team ready to play all four quarters.

Those things might seem simple for any Power Five team, but playing good defense and closing out games in the second half are two factors that have often eluded Sark and the Longhorns in the last two seasons.

Texas is nearly a double-digit favorite in the betting line for this game over West Virginia. But that may be a bit deceiving as Texas has yet to prove this season that they can beat a quality Big 12 foe by multiple scores.
