“I think they were kind of game planning against our pass game and stuff like that, so they did a good job,” West Virginia WR Sills said. “I think we as players could have helped Jack out a little bit more when the ball’s in the air and protecting out front, but that’s on us. We gave everything we had and it was a little bit short.”
