WVU could be heading to Orlando this bowl season.
Morgantown, WV – Despite a 41-39 loss to Houston, the Mountaineers were still featured in bowl projections this week. Brett McMurphy of Action Network has been relatively high on WVU as of late, and he apparently still is given his updated bowl slate.
Per McMurphy, West Virginia will be traveling to Orlando to take on Duke in the Pop-Tarts Bowl this bowl season.

The Mountaineers and Blue Devils have met on the gridiron four times with Duke taking three of the matchups. West Virginia won the last matchup in the series, which was in 1985, 20-18.
The Pop-Tarts Bowl is scheduled for December 28th.
