I’m a huge WVU fan, but I think this game is going to be the hardest game of the season, BYU will crush the mountaineers! I’m calling it now, it’s going to be a blow out!

Ummmm … what “huge WVU fan” says something like that? What are you basing this on? These teams will have all different players by then. No way to judge.

wvu can win but thats a long time from now. just wait until wvu becomes the number one seed, like the golden days.

This game is still years away. I doubt WVU will “kill” BYU because they are not a powerhouse team and never have been. BYU has a solid program and Independence will only help them moving forward. Should be a great game.
