West Virginia Mountaineers | Big 12


Conference Analysis
Win Conference (+700)
SSA Model Pick: None
Transfers often don’t make a big impact, but that means sometimes they do. Will Grier is an elite quarterback and the Florida transfer should once again carry this West Virginia team on his back. Grier missed the final three games of last season and not surprisingly West Virginia lost all three of those games. If this team want to compete for the Big 12 title the defense will need to improve.

Win Total Analysis
7 wins (-105/-115)
SSA Model Pick: None
West Virginia went 7-5 in regular season play last year and our model has them at 7-5 again this year. The defense gave up over 30 points per game last year and only brings back 5 starters which means Grier will once again have to put up big numbers for West Virginia to be competitive.
