FBS records set or tied in OU-TTU game: -Combined yards -Total yards by player -Tied most passing yards by player -Combined passing yards

Heading into the fourth quarter in Tempe, Washington State leads ASU 31-21. WSU QB Luke Falk has looked sharp in the second half. The Sun Devils, who lost quarterback Manny Wilkins in the first quarter, have been relying heavily on their "Sparky" package -- their version of the wildcat formation. It paid off with a Demario Richard touchdown right at the end of the third quarter.

After watching West Virginia today, I wonder whether Kliff Kingsbury can take a page from his close friend Dana Holgorsen, who has built an offense that functions with the defense in mind -- changing speeds, slowing down with a lead. Holgorsen and defensive coordinator Tony Gibson work so well together in shaping game plans. It just seems like Texas Tech's approach will never accommodate the defense, which continues to combust.
