West Virginia Mountaineers Season Prediction, What Will Happen

There are a few transformations happening in the Big 12 – like, in the conference as a whole – but West Virginia might be the funkiest of the bunch.

No one will predict much out of this team – the schedule is too tough, there’s a huge overhaul being done in the secondary and at linebacker, and the ground attack is a question mark. But if this offense and passing game work like they’re supposed to, then good luck trying to figure out the Mountaineer regular season win total.

This team should be able to hang with anyone and everyone.

Set The West Virginia Mountaineers Regular Season Win Total At … 6.5

At Pitt, at Virginia Tech, at Texas, at Texas Tech, at Iowa State, at Oklahoma State.

There’s a shot that West Virginia is the underdog in all six of its road games. Now throw in Oklahoma, Baylor, and revamped TCU in three key home games, and this will be a weekly grind.

The Mountaineers should beat Kansas and Towson at home, and it will win its share of 50/50 home games, but it’s all going to come down to those road dates.

They’ll get to six wins and bowl eligibility, but they’re going to be looking for more than just getting by.

The first seven-win season since 2018, though, would be a good step considering this slate.
