If this moribund West Virginia team has a strength, it's here, where Darius Stills continues to emerge an an absolute force for the Mountaineers. Time will tell what the team will do to replace Taijh Alston on the edge, but if you're looking for a unit to watch and not gouge your eyes out, the defensive line is definitely a point of hope.

Josh Chandler continues to emerge as the replacement for David Long's lost tackles.

Like the line, the linebacker play has impressed and this front seven will be the key to keep West Virginia in games while the offense sputters.

Kelly Bryant had his way with West Virginia's defense, especially in the first half as Mizzou roared to their 31-0 lead. You're seeing way too many tackles and not enough passes defended from this unit.
