West Virginia at Oklahoma State Final Analysis

This is one’s a tough game to handicap because Oklahoma State’s played so well at home. In last year’s battle, the Cowboys beat the Mountaineers 50 to 39. West Virginia quarterback Will Greir didn’t play in that game, though.

Greir’s the reason to back West Virginia in pretty much every game. At the beginning of the season, he was a Heisman Hopeful. He won’t win the award, but he does complete 70% of his passes and has only thrown 8 interceptions to 31 touchdowns.

More importantly? Greir’s got that Baker Mayfield attitude where he believes he can lead his team to victory no matter the situation. West Virginia should beat and cover against Oklahoma State on Saturday.
