The West Virginia Mountaineers come into this game with a 4-5 record overall but they are coming off a bad loss in their last game. The offense against Oklahoma State was a problem scoring only three points.West Virginia is averaging 26.7 points while the defense is giving up 23 points per game. This is an offense that has been inconsistent, so it’s going to be important the defense is good and takes some of the pressure off the defense. Under center for West Virginia is Jarret Doege and he has thrown for 2,180 yards, 11 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Leddie Brown has been the top running back rushing for 666 yards and 11 touchdowns.
On the other side of this matchup is the Kansas State Wildcats who sit with a 6-3 record overall and they have won three games in a row.
