WVU Football Projected Bowl Game with Familiar Postseason Opponent



Garrett Greene WVU Football

WVU Football has been projected to play Minnesota in the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Texas on Dec. 23, according to Action’s Brett McMurphy. This is a familiar postseason opponent for the Mountaineers as they lost to Minnesota in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl during the 2021 season.

McMurphy told WVSN that West Virginia would finish 6-6 before the season started.

Other Big 12 bowl projections: Texas (Cotton Bowl), Iowa State (Liberty Bowl), Oklahoma (Alamo Bowl), Kansas State (Pop-Tarts Bowl), Oklahoma State (Texas Bowl), Kansas (Guaranteed Rate Bowl), UCF (Gasparilla Bowl), Texas Tech (Independence Bowl).

McMurphy moved WVU into bowl contention after beating Pitt at home in the Backyard Brawl. West Virginia won four consecutive games after the Penn State loss, which is the first time since 2018 that the program has done so. It’s also the first time since 2018 that HC Neal Brown has won four in a row, back when he was at Troy. West Virginia then suffered a heartbreaking loss to Houston after a Hail Mary throw and then allowed 28 points in the fourth quarter to Oklahoma State at home. The Mountaineers got back on track with back-to-back wins over UCF and BYU to become bowl eligible.

    Year 5… Pathetic. What will it take to get to the Pop-Tarts bowl, 10 years?
