Eight was enough, WVU QB Smith's focused on Texas
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — After Geno Smith's record performance against Baylor, the West Virginia quarterback had a choice: Either spend some quality time with his mother who was in town to see him play, or go watch game film.
Smith went with quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital to a study room, ready to put last Saturday's 656-yard, eight-touchdown game against Baylor behind him.
With another test Saturday night looming when the Mountaineers play at No. 11 Texas (4-0, 1-0 Big 12), Smith says he doesn't let big performances go to his head.
It will be the first time in a hostile environment this season for No. 8 West Virginia (4-0, 1-0).
