Dana Holgorsen and Jake Spavital have some fun Liberty Bowl banter

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen and Texas A&M offensive coordinator Jake Spavital are already having a back-and-forth about their schools' December 29 meeting in the Liberty Bowl.

The two coached together at Houston, Oklahoma State and West Virginia before Spavital became Texas A&M's offensive coordinator in 2013. Spavital was a grad assistant at Houston and Oklahoma State while Holgorsen was an assistant and was West Virginia's quarterbacks coach for two seasons after Holgorsen was hired as the Mountaineers' head coach.

According to Tony Caridi, the Mountaineers' play-by-play announcer, Spavital started it via phone and then the banter took off on Twitter from there.

We hope this continues all through December.
