How well the Mountaineers can protect Jarret Doege could go a long way towards determining the outcome of Saturday’s game.

Kansas State’s looking to end a five-game losing streak against West Virginia on Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, so we welcomed Joel Bracken from The Smoking Musket to try and help us figure out how the Wildcats might be able to achieve that. It’s going to start with breaking through an inconsistent offensive line and putting pressure on quarterback Jarret Doege (looking at you, Felix).

We also talked a little bit about what’s made the West Virginia defense so good, particularly when it comes to stopping opposing offenses from finishing drives. Finally, we discussed Neal Brown and why he deserves some more time to turn things around in Morgantown.

Be sure to follow Joel on Twitter @WVstatsguy and check out his work at our SB Nation partner, The Smoking Musket. We also recommend following them on Twitter @smokingmusket.
