After an 0-2 start the West Virginia Mountaineers season looked to be headed down the drown, but after their last loss to Kansas they have picked up back to back wins versus Towson in Morgantown and Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. Now at 2-2 they’ll have to find four more wins with eight conference games left to play if they hope to play in the postseason and this is exactly what will need to happen if they plan to accomplish that goal.
Away vs Texas – LOSS
Playing a night game at Darrel K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium is never an easy thing, but with Texas coming off a loss to Texas Tech last week and still having their star quarterback Quinn Ewers out this is a golden opportunity for West Virginia, but unfortunately I think this will be a get right game for Texas and will result in a West Virginia loss.
Home vs Baylor – WIN
WVU is 1-1 on Thursday nights this season and that’ll change on October 13th when WVU upsets Baylor. WVU’s experience with Thursday night games will give them an edge along with their rowdy home fans in what is probably their last home night game of the season.
Away vs Texas Tech – WIN
WVU hasn’t beaten Texas Tech since Will Grier led the Mountaineers into Lubbock in 2018. Like 2018 this will be a road game and I believe it’ll be WVU’s second road win vs a Tech school this season (Va. Tech being the first).
Home vs TCU – WIN
Halloween weekend in Morgantown is always fun and that’ll carry over to the football field as the Mountaineers will earn their fifth straight win over the Horned Frogs on Homecoming.
Away vs Iowa State – LOSS
WVU will travel into Ames, Iowa with a three game win streak, but the Cyclones will inevitably snap that streak because all good things must come to an end.
Home vs Oklahoma – LOSS
The Mountaineers will take on their toughest test of the season November 12th when the Sooners comes to town. Oklahoma has won nine straight against WVU dating back to 2012 and when the clock hits zero in Morgantown that day the win streak will jump to ten straight.
Home vs Kansas State – WIN
WVU has owned Kansas State over the last six seasons posting a 5-1 record against them. When they clash on WVU’s Senior Day I predict that record will move to 6-1 over the last seven seasons as the Mountaineers will also be picking up their sixth win of the 2022 season making them bowl eligible.
Away vs Oklahoma State – LOSS
WVU will be given the opportunity to play spoiler here as I imagine this will be an important game for Oklahoma State trying to punch their ticket to the Big 12 Championship, but the Cowboys will probably take care of business at home and leave the Mountaineers with a 6-6 record which is just good enough to play in a bowl game.
