ESPN Releases Record Prediction For WVU in 2024

Morgantown, WV – While expectations have risen for the Mountaineers following a 9-4 season, not everyone is high on the Mountaineers. ESPN, the Worldwide Leader in Sports, recently revealed their College Football Power Index for the 2024 season. WVU, who some see as a dark horse candidate in the Big 12, received a considerably low projection.

The Power Index has WVU finishing with a record of 6.3-5.8. This would mean a significant step back after West Virginia finished top 4 in the Big 12 in 2024.

However, as it is every year, the ESPN Power Index has been proven to be way off. Considering the returning talent that the Mountaineers have, as well as the additions in the portal, there is strong reason to believe this will be the case yet again.

Neal Brown and the Mountaineers will have their first opportunity to prove doubters wrong in the season opener. Penn State is slated to come to town on August 31st – likely ranked in the AP Top 10.

Kickoff is slated for noon for Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff.
