USA Today released its 2017 Amway preseason poll early Thursday afternoon.
After a 10-3 record in 2016, the West Virginia Mountaineers came in at No.20. Despite only returning 8 starters, the addition of Will Grier and the return of Justin Crawford has impressed poll voters leading into the 2017 season.
The Mountaineers begin its season in Landover, Maryland against rival Virginia Tech, who also cracked the preseason top-25 at No. 22.
