I guess I need someone to explain the Big 12 and television network philosophy behind their selection of games and time slots. Last week we had to endure the Kansas Jayhawks in a prime time spot and this week the conference has slated potentially the best game of the weekend for 11:00 AM.

Storylines

 

Once again elimination is on the line in the Big 12 as two of the top four quarterbacks in the conference go head-to-head. Mason Rudolph heads into Morgantown leading the conference with an average of 378.6 passing yards per game. Just on his heels is West Virginia’s Will Grier with 352.4 yards per game.

Grier leads the Big 12 in passing touchdowns with 26 to Rudolph’s 19. Both quarterbacks have been sacked a combined twenty times which brings of the key factor in this game, the offensive lines. Injuries have plagued the Cowboys and inconsistency has gotten the best of the Mountaineers at times.
