Will Grier named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week

Will Grier got some honors from the Big 12 for his 375 yard, five touchdown, and no interception performance.

It may not be accurate to call him a newcomer at this point, but it is his first season in the Big 12. Grier has been ripping up the stat sheets for a while now, last weekend’s performance was his second week in a row with five touchdown passes, a first in West Virginia history.

On the season, Grier has a 66.3 completion percentage, and 2,467 yards on the year. The vast majority of his 26 touchdown passes have been to David Sills, who has a whopping 15 touchdown catches on the year.

Grier will have his biggest test next, a home game against Oklahoma State. The Cowboys have been vulnerable on defense outside of their most recent contest against Texas, and there’s definitely a strong chance WVU can win this game outright. The winner keeps their Big 12 conference title hopes alive, as all roads are leading to a rematch with TCU right now.
