Fresh off an 8 touchdown game Heisman front runner and potential top 5 pick Geno Smith faces his toughest competition yet vs. a very good Texas defense. Not only could this game decide the Big XII and vault West Virginia into the National Championship picture, it could catapault Geno Smith to the top of draft boards.

The Texas defense is loaded with talented players, many of whom are sure to be drafted high in the NFL draft. Read my scouting notes on the game to see how Geno Smith fared against a talented defense, unlike any he has faced this season.
