West Virginia is showing the last two weeks that it is much more than a sling-it-around offense. Its receivers are incredible -- Ka'Raun White with another terrific touchdown grab -- but WVU can also use clock (last TD drive took 5:08 and went 11 plays). The Mountaineers also have two takeaways on special teams, another from the defense and have shut down TCU in the second half. WVU has allowed only 1 of 7 third downs to be converted and has converted 7 of 12 of its own.

Alabama might only be up 20-13 but the lead feels so much bigger with how Alabama dominated most of the first half. Why Alabama is getting away from its running game is perplexing. Lane Kiffin called six straight pass plays on that last drive and needed a bad roughing the passer to keep the drive alive. Alabama went on to rush for 42 yards on seven of the next eight plays before Calvin Ridley's 4-yd TD catch
