What Dana Holgorsen said after West Virginia beat Texas Tech, 46-35

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen probably will savor his team’s 46-35 victory over Texas Tech more than most.

The Mountaineers scored the final 29 points of the game to beat the Red Raiders. It snapped a nine-game losing streak to ranked opponents.

Here’s a sampling of what Holgorsen had to say to the West Virginia network after Saturday’s wild comeback.

On beating Texas Tech: “I have to give Coach Kingsbury and his team a bunch of credit. This is a tough atomsphere and we were ready to play. But they have made improvements and made it hard for us.”

On West Virginia’s in-game improvements: “It’s a good bunch of kids and they work hard. We’ll still have to figure out who we are. Our offense, we are trying to find ourselves. I said after the TCU game I thought we are a good team who has a chance to be better. At the end of the season, we might have a chance to be a great team.”

On which players played well late in the game: “I’d hate to single out guys because I’d miss some. Ka’Raun White stepped up and made big plays. David Sills told me (along the sidelines) ‘I’m the guy who will make plays. Justin Crawford has a great, tough mentality. Our offensive line talked me into going for it on fourth down (on a critical fourth-quarter drive).  There’s a lot of credit to go around.”
