Their game two weeks ago wasn’t at all kind to the Mountaineers, but their most recent matchup may have softened the blow. They captured a comfortable 44-27 victory over NC State. QB Austin Kendall did work as he passed for 272 yards and three touchdowns. Kendall didn’t help his team much against Missouri, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
Meanwhile, Kansas gave up the first points against Boston College last Friday, but they didn’t let that get them down. Kansas was the clear victor by a 48-24 margin over Boston College. The high-flying offensive effort was a definite turnaround from Kansas’ flat performance the contest before.
Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 2-1. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Mountaineers and the Jayhawks clash.
The Mountaineers are a solid 4.5-point favorite against the Jayhawks.
