Bowl Game Revealed for WVU Football

Unlike last year at this time when the WVU football program was on the heels of a disappointing losing season, the Mountaineers will have the reward of a postseason bowl game to close out 2023.

West Virginia will play in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl on Dec. 27. WVU is set to face an ACC team and the game will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina with a 5:30 pm ET kickoff time.

In this matchup, the 8-4 (6-3) Mountaineers will represent the Big 12 and meet a team out of the ACC. This is according to multiple reports like 247 and the Action Network.

The reasoning for WVU landing in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl is due to the Big 12 having more bowl eligible teams than bowl slots with tie-ins and the SEC, who normally appears in this bowl game, having one fewer bowl eligible team than bowl slots available.

Even though Neal Brown and his team have already proved the many doubters wrong, reaching nine wins would still mean something for the WVU football program as a whole. A nine-win season in 2023 would be the best result for any West Virginia team since winning 10 in 2016.

And while Brown still has work to do in order to gain the full trust of the fans, capping off the year with a bowl win would certainly help his cause. Brown is currently 1-1 in bowl games with WVU, winning the Liberty Bowl over Army after the COVID-shortened 2020 season.
