ESPN FPI Gives West Virginia No Chance to Win Big 12

So you’re saying there’s a chance? Well if you ask ESPN if there’s any chance West Virginia can win the Big 12, the answer would be a big no. The ESPN FPI literally gives WVU a 0% chance at being crowned conference champion this coming football season.

This isn’t exactly surprising with most college football analysts and experts extremely down on this year’s Mountaineers.

At least WVU is not alone with a 0% opportunity. ESPN’s FPI also suggests no hope for BYU and Kansas as well. Conversely, Texas is projected to win the conference at 54.4%. Oklahoma is next up, but with a significantly lower percentage at 24.5%, and then comes TCU at 5.7%.

National Analyst Predicts WVU Football to be ‘God Awful’ in Epic Tongue-Lashing

Beyond just for the conference title, Texas has a 34.2% chance of making the College Football Playoff and TCU only has a 1.2% likelihood of getting back in the playoff field.

Kansas is the only school ESPN is less confident in reaching six wins for bowl eligibility than WVU.

For some hope and positivity, former Mountaineer Pat McAfee is hyping up Garrett Greene who he feels is a lock to be named the starting quarterback.

As Neal Brown looks to improve upon his team’s 5-7 record in 2022 and get the program headed in the right direction, he will have to do it by proving all of his doubters wrong.
