HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE (ON A SCALE OF 1-10)?
Seven. There is no reason Oklahoma State should be able to come into the Coliseum and escape with a win but — as we’ve seen over the past couple weeks — the Mountaineers are their own worst enemy. This game — and every game from here on out — is absolutely crucial. A loss tonight could just send us into a deeper descent, and that’s exactly what I’m afraid of.
PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
Huggs shuffles the lineup a little — possibly even starting Deuce McBride — and it works! The Mountaineers exorcise some demons against the Cowboys and finally show signs that team that dominated the first half of the season is still in there somewhere.
West Virginia 71, Oklahoma State 58
