One Reason Why Kansas State Will Win

The pass defense has been strong so far.

There might be a slew of problems across the board, but the secondary hasn’t allowed too many big plays – including to a Mississippi State passing game that’s nothing but big plays. West Virginia is more than just Will Grier and the passing attack, but slow that down just a little bit, and there’s a chance.

As always with Kansas State, it’s about tempo and controlling the game. The Wildcats have been fine in time of possession, and West Virginia just doesn’t care.

Tennessee and Youngstown State – it’s not like anyone has slugged the Mountaineers in the mouth. That’s about to change with a Wildcat offensive line that’s physical enough grind things out. However …

One Reason Why West Virginia Will Win

The K-State running game hasn’t been dominant yet.

It was, but that was against South Dakota. The Wildcats have the pieces, but so far they’re just not rising up and taking things over on the ground like they’re supposed to.

The offensive line hasn’t cranked it up yet, and now it has to face a West Virginia defensive front that’s been terrific at getting behind the line.

And yes, the secondary has been strong, but it’s not getting any help from the pass rush. Give Grier and the Mountaineer passing game parts time to work, and they’ll all go off.

Get a lead, and even with the good performance by the offense last week against UTSA – Skylar Thompson threw for 213 yards with several big plays – Kansas State isn’t built to bomb away to come back on a consistent basis.

Get this into a shootout, and Grier and the Mountaineers win with ease.

What’s Going To Happen

West Virginia won’t win with ease, but with two weeks off to rest up after missing last week’s date with NC State, it’ll be fresh.

Grier isn’t about to cool off after starting the season completing 77% of his throws averaging close to 13 yards per pass. He’ll get the Mountaineers up early, and Kansas State won’t get over the hump. Thompson will get his yards, but West Virginia will stay comfortably ahead.
