MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers are one of the Bottom 25 teams in college football right now, according to CBS Sports‘ David Cobb. In Cobb’s Bottom 25 Rankings, West Virginia checked in at the 16th worst team in the nation right now.
According to Cobb, “The Mountaineers refused to take downfield shots in their 38-15 Week 1 loss at Penn State. If some perimeter playmakers don’t emerge for WVU, this team could flirt with Bottom 25 status all year, which is the last thing embattled coach Neal Brown needs.”
The only teams ranked below West Virginia in Cobb’s Bottom 25 were Rice, North Texas, Buffalo, Central Michigan, South Alabama, East Carolina, New Mexico, Ball State, Miami (Ohio), Middle Tennessee, Arkansas State, Boise State, Kent State, Navy and Nevada.
That’s quite the company for West Virginia, the 15th winningest program in college football history, to be among. The Mountaineers are back in action at home on Saturday, September 9 at 6:00PM against Duquesne.
