The Sock 'Em, Bust 'Em Board Because that's our custom

This should be a terrific game to watch. OSU will boast the Big 12’s top pass-and-catch duo of QB Mason Rudolph and wideout James Washington. Look for both at an NFL game near you in 2018. And don’t forget running back Justice Hill.
It will be a heck of a challenge for the Mountaineers. The Pokes are universally rated as a top three Big 12 team in 2017. But don’t be shocked if West Virginia wins.
Check OSU’s schedule. The next weekend the Cowboys host Oklahoma, the team State is gunning to take down for the league title.
This could be the flip of my prediction of a WVU loss at TCU. The Mountaineers will want it more and the Cowboys will be looking ahead. Plus, OSU’s defense is shaky. Will Grier will have a nice day.
WVU, 45-42; 7-1
