VIDEO: Stills, Donahue discuss Baylor loss, strong defensive line play

WVU Football

West Virginia’s loss to Baylor was a tough one to take for the Mountaineers, who came in as 18-point underdogs and finished just a mere field goal away from a win.

WVU’s defense had one of the strongest performances they’ve had all year, especially up front. The Mountainers sacked Charlie Brewer 8 times throughout the night, bringing themselves level with Baylor as the Big 12’s sack leaders.

Darius Stills had 3 of those sacks, a career high for him.

“Us playing that hard in that game, we’re gonna win a lot of games playing that hard,” he said. “And us as a defense, we played probably one of the best games we’ve ever played on defense and just coming up short just doesn’t feel good.”

Senior defensive end Reese Donahue also put together a solid game on the D-line. In addition to his 3 tackles, he also batted down a pass.

Disappointed in the loss, Donahue said he also thought the line had their best game of the season. Still, though, coming up short doesn’t feel good.

With Texas Tech looming next Saturday, he says the Mountaineers have to just “take it on the chin and keep going.”
