A major head coach is facing some serious criticism for how he handled the end of tonight's game.

West Virginia, the No. 9 team in the country, just lost in an upset bid to Oklahoma State. It's a loss that might end up knocking the Mountaineers out of the College Football Playoff race.

The game came down to the final drive, with West Virginia losing on the final play.

West Virginia's head coach, Dana Holgorsen, is facing some major criticism for how he handled the final drive. In particular, Holgorsen's timeout usage was questionable.

The Mountaineers' head coach chose to let some precious time run off the clock instead of using his timeout following a run by star quarterback Will Grier.

It ended up being costly.

West Virginia ended up falling to 8-2 on the season with the loss today, while Oklahoma State improved to 6-5.

Holgorsen will certainly face some post-game questions regarding the timeout usage. Stay tuned.
