Despite averaging over 45 points a game, West Virginia is 1-2 because the Mountaineers defense can’t stop anyone. Virginia Tech is far from an offensive juggernaut, but the Hokies can get first downs, move the chains, control the clock and wear down the porous Mountaineers defense. Look for Virginia Tech to control the second half and pull out a win.
