We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games takes place at FedEx Field in Landover Maryland. The West Virginia Mountaineers and the Virginia Tech Hokies face off in a neutral site game.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2005 when the Hokies won by a final score of 34-17.
West Virginia Mountaineers
The West Virginia Mountaineers feel like this can be a special year for them, and they will get a test right away facing off against a top 25 foe.
Last year they had a really nice start to the season starting 6-0 but then they lost to both Oklahoma teams on the way to a 10-3 season.
The Mountaineers have a lot of question marks coming into this season though. Former Florida quarterback Will Grier will be the starting quarterback this year, and gives the Mountaineers a completely different look then they had last year with Skyler Howard.
For the Mountaineers to win this game the defense is going to need to be good. The offense should be good, but if they can’t slow down the Hokies it probably won’t matter.
Virginia Tech Hokies
On the other side of this match up is the Virginia Tech Hokies who are also ranked in the top 25, and also have some really high expectations for this year.
The biggest question for the Hokies is at the quarterback position. They haven’t named a starting quarterback for this game, and that is a problem.
In this game they can’t have any growing pains with the quarterback, because the Mountaineers will jump all over that early.
On the defensive side of the ball it all starts with the defensive line. They have a lot of guys that can be stars, but they are also young.
They are going to be hungry coming out in this game early.
To win this game they need to come out early and play well on offense. They can’t dig themselves out of a big hole or it could get out of hand early.

I think of all the match ups this weekend this is going to be the most fun game. I think both teams will get out to a fast start and it will come down to the final quarter.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Mountaineers ML
I like that Will Grier has experience playing in big games and that will be the difference. The Mountaineers will start the season 1-0.
