West Virginia Score Watch: Let Dana Holgorsen Teach You To Math

Remember when you first learned how to add triple digits in elementary school? Dana Holgorsen would've made that homework a hell of a lot more fun.

As first reported earlier, West Virginia is scoring a lot of points in football, currently 69 in the fourth quarter against in-state rival Marshall. That means they've scored 169 in their last 12 quarters of play if you include the paltry 30 they hung on South Florida in the 2011 regular season finale. Despite still playing their first game of the season, the 'Neers also have 139 points in the calendar year 2012, which is best in the FBS and we didn't even look that up.

Also, the Heisman voting should probably be closed. Geno Smith thinks Case Keenum was cute an all, but watch this: With 14 minutes left, he was benched after finishing 33 of 37 passing for 420 yards passing, plus 65 yards rushing, good for five touchdowns (four passing, one rushing).

West Virginia Scored 83 Points In 65 Minutes

Just wanna make sure we're all aware of that. Add 13 so far against Marshall to 70 from the Orange Bowl's final 55 minutes, and we're all riding the Red Bull rocket all over again.

In 75 minutes, Geno Smith has 517 yards passing and seven touchdowns and Tavon Austin has 169 yards and four touchdowns. Oh wait, all that came from Austin in just one game.

The point is the Mountaineers show no signs of stopping with all the scoring, which is basically another way of saying they still run the same offense and have the same very good players. In last year's opener against the same Thundering Herd, the 'Eers mustered just three points in the first quarter.
