The Texas Tech Red Raiders are 4-1 for a reason. They have every right to feel that they can win this week’s game against West Virginia.
Some may feel like this is a guaranteed win for the Mountaineers because it’s a home game and it’s homecoming at Milan Puskar Stadium. But nothing is given in the Big 12 Conference. Both teams need this win to help control their destiny toward a spot in the conference championship game.
If the Mountaineers hope to make it into the championship game picture, they will likely need to win the rest of their games. That’s no easy task and although they are 3-2 on the year, the Mountaineers had a good chance to win every game they played.
Mainly, the Mountaineers have hurt themselves. But against Tech, like with any team, there are players who can really hurt the Mountaineers. The WVU football team needs to watch out for the following five player in order to have a real shot at winning this one on Saturday.
