At Football Study Hall I broke down how West Virginia has built their defense around the best secondary in the Big 12. Read about it here.
West Virginia should be an interesting team to follow in 2015 as they have one of the better defenses in the league along with yet another explosive offense but they also have to play road games in Norman, Waco, Ft. Worth, and Manhattan.
I'm not sure they could have received a tougher draw save perhaps by switching out Manhattan for Lubbock.
At any rate, I'd say they have a good chance of pulling off a victory in their first road trip against the likely overrated Sooners.
