Pat’s Thoughts:

KSU +16 @ WVU

When you start off slow, it is always good to rely on Bill Snyder to dig you out of a hole.

K State has struggled this year, including getting pasted by Miss State.  MSU is very good, so I will give them a pass on that.  They seem to have found their QB last week, and they return their entire OL from last year and have a very good secondary.

That secondary is important as WVU will try to chuck it all over the yard.  WVU dodged a huge bullet last week as Hurricane Florence saved them an ass-kicking in Raleigh.  People are high on WVU, and I understand why.  There is a lot of talent on that squad.  But more than two TDs more than K State?  I don’t think so.

And a little history lesson – these games are always close.  KSU is 4-2 vs WVU since joining the B12; and WVU’s largest margin of victory is 5 points.  I’ll take the better coach and the hungrier team + a butt load of puntos.

 

Iowa State +6.5 vs WVU

This Iowa State team is decent and definitely flying under the radar.  They beat Ok State, who blew out Boise.  They also hung tough with Oklahoma and TCU.

There is a lot of love for WVU, but that is based on hype.  The only top shelf opponent that was on their early schedule was juggernaut NC State, and that game was cancelled due to a hurricane.  WVU dodged a major bullet with that one.

ISU is 9-2 in their last 11 as a dog, and will be pumped to play a ranked opponent at home and at night.  Love the underrated Clones in this spot.
