WACO, Texas (AP) Nobody has to tell West Virginia coach Dana Holgerson that Baylor can put up points in a hurry. The Mountaineers gave up 62 and 73 points in their first two trips to Waco.
But Holgerson didn't expect his team would need to stop a two-point conversion and recover an onside kick to win after carrying a 25-point lead into the fourth quarter all while facing a freshman quarterback.
That's exactly what happened, though. Xavier Preston sacked Charlie Brewer on a two-point try with 17 seconds left and No. 23 West Virginia withstood a furious fourth-quarter Baylor rally to escape with a 38-36 win Saturday night.
