Tomorrow, the West Virginia Mountaineers (4-6, 2-5 Big 12) hosts #19 Kansas State (7-3, 5-2 Big 12) in their home finale. The game kicks off at 2 p.m. and will broadcast on ESPN+.

West Virginia is in need of a win in order to keep their bowl hopes alive. While there may be belief in the locker room, there isn’t much hope for the Mountaineers nationally.

ESPN’s FPI currently gives West Virginia only a 28% chance to claim victory against Kansas State. The Football Power Index is generated based upon ESPN’s Analytics. Based upon statistics, the Mountaineers have virtually no shot to ESPN.

However, as we saw last week this really means nothing. West Virginia could easily sneak up on Kansas State and capture the victory on Senior Day.

Crazier things have happened.
