The Mountaineers continue their push toward the Top 25 when they get set to take on the BYU Cougars on Saturday.
BYU is in a very dangerous spot here at 1-2 this season as they have a lot on the line here.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The Mountaineers have opened the season 2-0, but after their 26-11 win over Missouri in Week 1, things weren’t easy for them in their 2nd game.
Youngstown State gave West Virginia all they could handle, which may be the reason why West Virginia doesn’t have a number next to their name currently.
They’ll have a chance here to get into the Top 25, as they’ll look to their high flying offense that is averaging 559 yards per game to lead the charge.
West Virginia will give a majority of the touches to Rushel Shell and Justin Crawford.
Shell has rushed for 174 yards on the season, while Crawford has 141 yards. The duo has set the tone for West Virginia in the first two victories, allowing the pass game to get a lot of open gaps down field as opposing defenses are forced to stack the box for these two.
Look for the Mountaineers to establish Shell and Crawford early here against BYU.
BYU is in a lot of trouble.
The Cougars have started the season 1-2 and this game against a Big 12 opponent could not be bigger. Not only does this one hold importance in terms of the Cougars season outlook, but BYU is one of the teams being considered for the Big 12 in the expansion.
Starting the season 1-2 is not the best look and with this one being against a Big 12 opponent, a win is almost a must for this Cougars team in their audition stage.
BYU has averaged just 17 points this season through their first 3 games, which really puts a lot of pressure on the defense as they cannot allow the opposition to score in bunches.
Travel wise, the Cougars will have gone 2000 miles to the East for this neutral sight game.
