Reality is starting to set in on West Virginia football after the honeymoon that was the month of September.

The brigade of ranked opponents only gets tougher this Saturday, when they take on No. 2 Baylor and one of the most high-powered offenses in the country.

"It's what everybody signed up for," West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen said Monday on the weekly Big 12 coaches teleconference. "We're excited about it and it's going to be a good opportunity to be able to go play football. That's the mindset of our team right now."

It doesn't get a whole lot easier for the Mountaineers after taking on the Bears. Holgorsen's bunch has a date with TCU to round out the month.
