The West Virginia Mountaineers appear to have gotten their act together these last two weeks, but the way they opened the year is hard to forget. We're waiting for WVU to make its mind up on if it's a good or subpar team. The Texas Longhorns have been far and away more consistent this season, and there's a chance they get their quarterback back in Quinn Ewers. West Virginia has a little more to prove to me. Give me Texas in a comfortable home victory.
