Former Oklahoma State Cowboys offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen is now struggling as head coach at West Virginia, and for OSU, his trials and tribulations could not come at a better time. The #11 ranked Cowboys go on the road to face West Virginia Saturday, kickoff is scheduled for 12 pm eastern time.

As the Cowboys are on the verge of breaking into the top 10, the matchup between #6 LSU vs #9 Georgia takes place the same day, giving Oklahoma State more probability in moving up in the rankings with a win at West Virginia. OSU knows this, and they are going to give the Mountaineers all they have got Saturday.

Bad news for Dana Holgorsen, the Mountaineers are 2-2, and were just shutout for the first time in 12 years by Maryland 37-0, making it their worst shutout in 38 seasons. The loss of Geno Smith and Tayvon Austin would hurt any program, but this current Mountaineers team just simply looks lost on the field.

Regardless of the turmoil in Morgantown, Holgorsen’s job still appears to be secure, he’s 19-11 in his three seasons as head coach at West Virginia. Holgorsen also took the team to a BCS Bowl game in his first year there. However, this Oklahoma State football team could have him wishing he had stayed put with the Cowboys rather than having to go against them with a broken program.
