WVU Again Pegged as Double-Digit Road Underdogs

Cody Nespor



A trip to Manhattan, Kansas Saturday presents WVU with a third-straight challenging road game.

West Virginia’s previous two roads games have been against the then-No. 5 Oklahoma Sooner and the then-No. 12 Baylor Bears. Just like in those games, WVU is not being given much of a chance against the Wildcats. The Mountaineers are heading into this game as 13 point underdogs. The team was 32.5 point underdogs at Oklahoma and 17.5 point underdogs at Baylor.

The Wildcats have been in and out of the top-25 rankings all season. K-State was ranked at no. 20 last week, but a loss to Texas has pushed them out this week.

Prior to that loss, Kansas State had won three games in a row, including a surprise 48-41 upset over the Sooners.

Yesterday the Big 12 announced that the game will kick-off at 3:30 p.m. EST and will be broadcast on ESPN.
