Fearless Picks: West Virginia Mountaineers – Kansas Jayhawks – WVU | West Virginia Mountaineers sports coverage – Blue Gold News
West Virginia obviously has deficiencies, but Kansas has even more. The Jayhawks do have this game’s best player in Pooka Williams, and WVU can’t let him run wild. KU’s only win over the Mountaineers came in 2013 when the Jayhawks rushed for 315 yards. Provided WVU doesn’t let Kansas/Williams duplicate that feat, this is a win the Mountaineers should manage to obtain.
