Despite a heartbreaking loss to No. 6 Oklahoma last week, West Virginia more than covered a large spread against the Sooners. So… take the victories where you can?
After entering as a 17 point underdog last week, the Mountaineers will attempt to cover yet another spread this season. WVU opens as a touchdown favorite against Texas Tech this week at Milan Puskar Stadium. The over/under is set at 54.5 points.
