MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- The defense stinks. The offense is stuck in neutral.

Every game from here on out is a must-win or No. 25 West Virginia will likely fall short of its preseason goal of going to a BCS bowl.

A two-game losing streak is on hold temporarily as the Mountaineers (5-2, 2-2) use a bye week to pay closer attention to their many problems.

Coach Dana Holgorsen says no one is pointing fingers. He says the coaches will go back to teaching proper technique and wait until Sunday to begin preparations for the Nov. 3 home game with TCU (5-2, 2-2).

Some players don't want Saturday off. Tavon Austin, who scored WVU's only two touchdowns in last week's blowout loss to Kansas State, says he wants to play again right away. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
