I actually did not think about the fall out of WVU’s win over Pitt until after it happened.
Anytime I see 13-9 anywhere I throw up a little. So, when the Mountaineers win over Pitt gave them a 13-9 record, I was all like:
Our executive tweeter Matt had some thoughts as well:
The silver lining if any result in this series is no more 13-9!
But I’d obviously prefer a 16-9 (5-1) record over a 13-12 (2-4) record.

Five. I’m as afraid of the Cowboys as I am of Creed from The Office.
PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
WVU’s heating up. Oklahoma State is a tough matchup, especially in Stillwater, but I believe that the Mountaineers will take the series.
West Virginia wins the series 2-1
