ESPN: West Virginia’s next game is also its biggest

West Virginia’s biggest game is up next, according to ESPN.

The worldwide leader in sports has pegged the TCU game as the biggest of West Virginia’s season.

The Mountaineers still have yet to play against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, and will be taking on the Cowboys at home and the Sooners on the road.

It’s not that the sentiment is wrong, it’s just that if West Virginia wins, the biggest game will almost inarguably be the season-ending game at Oklahoma.

In order to upset TCU, a lot of things need to happen for West Virginia. Will Grier needs to play out of his mind, the Mountaineers will need to be perfect in the red zone and get 100 percent scoring off turnovers, and their defense will have to rattle Kenny Hill.

West Virginia can win the TCU game, it’s just hard to find a chink in TCU’s armor. Kenny Hill, who used to be unpredictable, is now consistent. The defense, which used to struggle, is now solid. Kyle Hicks is injured, and it doesn’t mean much of anything because TCU has more running backs that can score.

Yes, this is going to be a big day for West Virginia, but if they win it, the bigger games will be yet to come.
