Spavital to WVU: I know your plays
Liberty Bowl trash talk has gotten started early between Texas A&M and West Virginia. Offensive coordinator Jake Spavital, who worked under WVU coach Dana Holgorsen in 2011 and 2012 as quarterbacks coach for the Mountaineers, and before that with Holgorsen at Houston and Oklahoma, started off the friendly smack talk.
Got'em. @JakeSpavital upon learning Texas A&M would play WVU called @Holgorsendana and said "I know all your signals" and hung up.

The Aggies could probably use the help on that end, as the defensive coordinator position is still open for the SEC’s last-ranked defense.
Holgorsen got in on the action, firing back at Spavital and reminding him where he learned the art of the high-powered offense.
.@TonyCaridi I am not worried, I taught @JakeSpavital all of his signals

The Aggies and Mountaineers meet on the field in the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 29 in Memphis.
