West Virginia Football: Ranking the Toughest Games on the Mountaineers' Schedule

By Nicholas Ian Allen, 3 weeks 7 hours ago
It's difficult to imagine now, but the West Virginia Mountaineers finished the 2019 season with some positive momentum. Sure, the team fell from 8-4 in 2018 to 5-7 last year and didn't go to a bowl game for the first time since 2013. It also ranked last in the Big 12 and among the nation's worst in scoring, rushing, and total offense. But last season ended on a high note.  ...

Big 12 Football: Ranking the Toughest Non-Conference Schedules in 2020

By Allen Kenney, 1 month 3 days ago
In general, Big 12 teams don't have a reputation for scheduling aggressively. The upcoming season puts that perception to the test.   All 10 teams have at least one Power 5 opponent lined up.
