WVU’s bowl projections did not change following their 59-20 loss to Oklahoma.
Morgantown, WV – Despite a blowout loss to Oklahoma, and being virtually eliminated from Big 12 Championship contention, the West Virginia Mountaineers still have a lot to play for in 2023. After securing their sixth win against the BYU Cougars, WVU is bowl eligible for the first time since 2021.
Sports outlets all across the nation have been fairly identical in their bowl projections for the Mountaineers. Not much has changed regarding where WVU is projected to play this holiday season, even with the loss.
Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach of ESPN both have the Mountaineers playing after Christmas.
Bonagura has WVU traveling to Arizona to take on Illinois in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl. Schlabach, on the other hand, has the Mountaineers taking on Maryland in the Autozone Liberty Bowl.
West Virginia will have the opportunity to better their bowl position with two games remaining.
