What Dana Holgorsen said after West Virginia’s narrow win at Baylor

Dana Holgorsen had a couple of interesting takes after West Virginia’s close 38-36 victory over Baylor Saturday night in Waco.

The Mountaineers nearly coughed up a 25-point lead starting the fourth quarter. The game wasn’t settled until Xavier Preston’s sack on a two-point conversion saved the victory with 17 seconds left.

Here’s a sampling of what Holgorsen said to the West Virginia radio network immediately after the game:

Dana Holgorsen’s post-game comments:

On the close victory:

“We’ll take it.”

On the closing moments of the game:

“I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a third party have such an effect on the game. Some of the things are unexplainable. I don’t know how to handle it. But we’ll take the win.”

On the wild finish and the near-collapse in the fourth quarter:

“Winning the game is the only thing that matters. At the end of the season, nobody will care.”

On Baylor’s comeback:

“Give Baylor credit. They didn’t quit.”

On West Virginia’s sputtering offense at the end of the game:

“Our offense had a great third  quarter and then couldn’t do anything in the fourth quarter. But in the end, we made a play at the end and won it.”
