West Virginia will look to move to 5-0 on the season with the Jayhawks coming to town. A win here could also help them move up in the rankings and continue to push for a spot in the College Football Playoffs.
Last year, West Virginia won at Kansas by a score of 56-34. It would seem Kansas has improved this year which could make this game a shootout.
Kansas has already improved on their 1-11 record from 2017, but are currently on a two game losing streak. They just got blown out by Oklahoma State 28-48, so they will be looking for a huge upset on the road.
Kansas is currently averaging 28.8 points per game, which ranks 73rd in the country. The Jayhawks will basically have to rely on their offense to keep up in this game, because neither defense is particularly good. Freshman running back, Pooka Williams Jr. has been a play-maker for the Jayhawks this season, and has rushed for 469 yards and has scored four touchdowns.
The Jayhawks defense got torched last week to the Oklahoma State Cowboys. They allowed 312 passing yards and 256 rushing yards for a total of 568. Now they go up against arguably the best quarterback in the country. If they do not change something leading up to the game, the Mountaineers will have a field day throwing the ball and this game will be over very early.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The Mountaineers won a shootout with Texas Tech last week by a score of 42-34. They improved to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in the Big 12. They are now ranked 9th in the AP Poll and must continue winning if they plan to be in the conversation for a top four spot.
Led by quarterback, Will Grier, the Mountaineers are averaging 42.2 points per game, good for 21st in the country. Grier has already thrown for 1487 and 17 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions. Grier is projected to be picked in next year’s draft and should easily be able to pick apart the Jayhawks defense for another huge day.
The Mountaineers defense has actually been pretty solid this year, only allowing an average of 17.8 points. They just allowed 34 in a game to Texas Tech, but before that, no team scored more than 17 on them.
