Mizzou was one of the most obvious stumblers of the first week, sullying the name of the SEC up in Mountain West territory. They need a bounce back at home.
West Virginia escaped against one of the better FCS programs – James Madison. They were definitely not inspiring thus the significant spread.
West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia started with an FCS opponent but a challenging one in James Madison. It almost cost them a win but they did take care of business. They won by 7 which was a push and the game was way under at 20-13.
Transfer QB Austin Kendall looked pretty good in trying to replace Will Grier. They could not run the ball though and eventually a lack of balance will hurt them.
Still it was a nice debut for new coach Neal Brown. Getting that first win is key and a loss, even to a program like JMU would have created a lot of consternation in Morgantown.
Heading to Mizzou is going to be a much different animal and the fact that Mizzou lost their opener means it could be a little bit of a hornet’s nest. I am not sure the Mountaineers are ready for that.
Mizzou was supposed to go up to Wyoming in stick it to the world mode and get a healthy win. Instead they suffered a loss as 15 point favorites. Now they need to rebound or else the wheels could fall off with nothing to play for.
Transfer QB Kelly Bryant was awesome in the loss with more than 400 yards passing. He was lucky to get that over two games at Clemson but it is clear he can throw. He will have his running games too in the future.
Mizzou prides itself on defense, especially up front but they got pushed around by Wyoming. They had no answer for speedy QB Sean Chambers on the ground and the Cowboys rushed for near 300 yards. WVU is built differently though.
The Tigers are heavy favorites again which is interesting given what we just saw. Time will tell if that is part fade of WVU or pro Tigers. I liked Mizzou coming into the season and counted this one as a win, which is should be.

You have to be a bit weary after week one to back Missouri. The total is more interesting to me than the side right now.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over 62.5
After scoring only 20 in his debut I think Brown will be a little eager to get the offense really moving. Mizzou gave yo 37 to Wyoming.
Bryant looked really good throwing the ball and Missouri should be able to move the ball well against the Mountaineers.
