West Virginia vs. Texas score update: Mountaineers holding 41-38 lead in the 4th

The West Virginia Mountaineers are leading the Texas Longhorns 41-38 midway through the fourth quarter at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday night.

Geno Smith has been brilliant throughout most of the evening, but almost had a costly fumble moments ago at his own 12-yard line. However, Texas couldn't take advantage when Anthony Fera missed a potential game-tying field goal.

In a see-saw affair, both teams have been virtually unstoppable on offense. The two teams have combined for over 700 total yards. Smith has put on another show in his quest for a Heisman Trophy, throwing for 256 yards and four touchdowns on 24-of-34 passing. Andrew Buie has also been incredible for the Mountaineers, picking up 162 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.

The Longhorns have also had their fair share of playmakers. Running back Joe Bergeron has been having the game of his life against West Virginia, scoring four touchdowns on the ground to accompany his 45 yards rushing.
