Special teams gaffes plague No. 22 West Virginia



CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s special teams gaffes were almost too numerous to count against LSU and Mountaineers coach Dana Holgorsen can only hope there’s enough time to fix them all.

No. 22 West Virginia (3-1) gave up the most points at home in six years in a 47-21 loss to LSU on Saturday.

Before Bowling Green (3-1) comes to Morgantown on Saturday, Holgorsen is trying to sort out bad punts, poor field position blamed in part on a lack of punt returns, and two missed tackles on an LSU kickoff return that went for a touchdown.

Holgorsen says the Mountaineers aren’t panicking and will work hard to correct the problems.
