There is a obvious difference there, although the Mountaineers haven’t beaten any rated teams. This might all change, and Kentucky could catch fire and be the favourite, but because of at this time, oddsmakers may likely choose West Virginia.
Visiting the Liberty Bowl will be a bummer for any West Virginia team many thought will be a dark horse within the Big 12 title race. The Mountaineers have faced some setbacks, however with their defense coming back to create against TCU, there is a strong chance that they’ll come roaring into the conference picture having a strong October.
Kentucky is 5-1 with simply a loss of revenue to Florida around the season, but has battled with less strong teams and it is playing within the inept SEC East. West Virginia has two losses by seven points each, and also the Mountaineers lost to 2 AP top 15 teams.
The Large 12 versus. SEC matchup may likely play in support of the Mountaineers if you are looking at fruition.
