West Virginia running back Andrew Buie can't wait to get more work.
Thrust into the starting lineup due to injuries, the sophomore has infused some critically needed balance into the Mountaineers' offense over the last two games.
He ran for a career-high 207 yards and scored twice in Saturday's 48-45 win at No. 15 Texas. In one game he eclipsed his yardage total for all of last season. A week earlier he had 82 yards against Baylor.
Buie said he'll be ready to handle the load again when No. 5 West Virginia (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) plays at Texas Tech (4-1, 1-1) on Saturday.
''I'm going to try to play like that every week,'' said Buie, who credited his success to his blockers. ''If the opportunities are there I just want to make the most of them and play ball. I'll take it as long as they're giving it to me.''
Buie also caught three passes for 66 yards against Texas, giving Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville more to worry about ...

So, about this whole Geno Smith thing…does anybody have any questions? Anybody? No, didn’t think so. Not after what Geno did to Texas on Saturday. Make no mistake, the Longhorns defense is no joke. Granted, I wouldn’t put them up there with the Alabama’s or the LSU’s of the world, but with four players currently projected as first or second round picks, they certainly...
Whereas week 5′s keyword was survive, week 6′s theme was thrive. South Carolina, Ohio State, and Florida announced loud and clear that they’re going to be threats to win their respective divisions, though the Buckeyes can’t officially win anything. West Virginia finished its Big 12 entrance with a road win over Texas that wasn’t quite as close as the 48-45 final would...
More than a week ago, West Virginia cornerback Pat Miller was being booed off the field – his home turf – after a poor performance vs. Baylor.
West Virginia is working on a new contract for men's basketball coach Bob Huggins.
Athletic director Oliver Luck said Friday a reworked deal should be completed in the next few months.
In 2008, Huggins signed a contract that pays him at least $20 million in guaranteed income through 2019.
The Mountaineers have gone to the NCAA tournament in each of Huggins' five seasons...
Bob Huggins is set to begin his sixth season as head coach of the Mountaineers.
With Heisman Trophy candidate Geno Smith leading the way, undefeated West Virginia is in the midst of its best start in six years.
Andrew Buie's sudden emergence could make things all the more difficult on opposing defenses that are already struggling to contain the Mountaineers' high-powered offense.
Smith and the fifth-ranked Mountaineers look to keep rolling Saturday...
