West Virginia University will get a weekend off as players try to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Iowa State.

Head Coach Dana Holgorsen talked about his team during a news conference at noon Tuesday that can be viewed below.

The Mountaineers’ winning streak was stopped at five Saturday with a 30-14 loss at the hands of the Cyclones. WVU is now 5-1, while Iowa State stands at 3-3.

WVU will have a chance to regroup after a weekend with no game scheduled.

"I think it sets up good for where we are at. We're six games into it, the season is really more than half over," Holgorsen said. "We've got one game in the next 20 days, so we'll be able to heal up and work on some things - recalibrate a little bit. Hopefully, clear our heads from what happened and finish strong."

The Mountaineers will return to action Oct. 25 when the team will face Baylor at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown. Baylor is 4-3 after losing to Texas on Saturday, 23-17.
