The recruiting momentum gained by West Virginia head coach Neal Brown and co. has been an excellent program boost this offseason and coming off the first winning season in Brown’s WVU tenure, optimism surrounds the WVU football team.
Despite the uncertainty of the future of the Big 12 in the coming seasons, WVU was predicted to finish sixth in the conference this season by the media. With senior running back Leddie Brown leading what should be an improved offense, and senior defensive lineman Dante Stills as the leader of last season’s top defense in the conference, WVU should be a candidate to outshine preseason expectations.
With a non-conference schedule featuring Maryland, Virginia Tech and LIU Post and the toughest conference game at home early against Oklahoma (playing Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Texas at Milan Puskar), can WVU put together Brown’s first big season?
Coming off a 5-7 season in 2019 and a 6-4 season in 2020, what is a realistic outlook on wins in 2021?
