WVU Sports with Tom Bragg

VIDEO: WVU football coach Neal Brown, Kansas week

Once again, thanks to the folks at WVU who upload this to their YouTube account each week.


By now you are probably aware that West Virginia’s game on Saturday at Kansas is being shown on ESPN+ as part of the league’s new “Big 12 Now” platform.

What does that mean? Well, for starters that means the WVU-Kansas game will not be shown on a traditional cable or satellite broadcast. There is no channel on your TV provider that will get this game. The only way to watch the Mountaineers take on the Jayhawks is by streaming the game, and it requires a monthly subscription to the ESPN+ service.

Greetings from high above Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown. Some news out of WVU as it relates to who is playing for the Mountaineers today against North Carolina State — starting guards Josh Sills and Mike Brown are out against the Wolfpack today, according to a report from 247Sports.

Is this a result of the midweek depth chart shakeup Neal Brown talked about on Tuesday? It would be odd if it was and a *major* message to the rest of the team if those two, especially Sills, were benched as healthy scratches today. Stay tuned on this one.

247Sports is also reporting Dante Stills will start ahead of Reese Donahue at defensive tackle.

Other changes to the depth chart this week that held for the cards handed out in the press box: True freshman Winston Wright is still listed as the starter at “H” receiver and Briason Mays is still listed as the starter at center. We’ll find out how the absence of Sills and Brown changes things for the West Virginia offensive line in about an hour.
