2017 West Virginia Season Preview
In 2015, the West Virginia Mountaineers finished the season with 8 wins and 5 losses and an invitation to the Cactus Bowl against Arizona State where they won in a close game with a final score of 43-42. This 2016 season will be a make-or-break year for Dana Holgorsen’s sixth year as head coach for the Mountaineers. West Virginia is expected to have one of the top Big 12 offensive team, leaving the pressure on the offense for a successful season. Returning quarterback Skyler Howard had a sub-par 2015 season but finished strong in their bowl win. Coming into 2016 Howard is expected to have improved and has assistance from returning players Daikiel Shorts and Shelton Gibson. West Virginia has lost eight starters on the defensive side and it will be crucial to fill these holes. Defensive ends, Noble Nwachukwu will be one to watch as one of the top sack leaders in the Big 12, and Christian Brown will be an important part of the defense strategy in 2016 for the Mountaineers. In 2016, the Virginia Tech Mountaineers schedule consists of 7 home, 4 away and one 1 neutral site game in the regular season. Top games in the 2016 schedule will be against Iowa State, Oklahoma, and Texas Longhorns.

Mountaineer Field Experience
West Virginia vs. Pittsburgh
The “Backyard Brawl” with the Pitt Panthers has been put on the back burner for a bit, but if you’re ever lucky enough to see the game live, don’t hesitate, just go! Only 70 miles are between the two universities but they developed a fierce rivalry in the late 19th century that is still seen today. The Mountaineers and Panthers hope to reignite the rivalry sooner rather than later.
West Virginia and Texas have not historically been rivals on the football field. But since the two have been conference rivals, the showdown between West Virginia and Texas has been one of the best in the country. West Virginia welcomed themselves to the Big 12 in 2012, going in to Austin and taking down the Longhorns in one of the best games of the season. The Mountaineers have circled Texas on the schedule every year since, making up for a lack of history with energy, passion, and fantastic football.
Although the rivalry between the Oklahoma Sooners and West Virginia Mountaineers is young, it has already seen some great moments. The two teams first played in 1958, but the rivalry was born in 2008 when the Sooners and Mountaineers met in the Fiesta Bowl. West Virginia blew out the Sooners, building animosity between the two programs. In 2012, the Mountaineers joined the Big 12, making this rivalry and annual series. Since then, the games between Ou and West Virginia have been incredibly tight and full of fantastic moments.
West Virginia Mountaineers in the CFP Championship and Bowl Games
Even though they have yet to be crowned BCS National Champions, the Mountaineers can stake claim to having the most victories of any team without a title. To go along with their 700 plus all-time wins the Mountaineers have about a half a dozen Big East Conference Championships. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and Big 12 Championship Game.
2015 West Virginia Football Preview
The West Virginia Mountaineers had a season of near misses last year, falling in close games to Alabama, Oklahoma, TCU, and Texas A&M. The potential of the Mountaineers team was seen last season when they took down Baylor on the road, leaving West Virginia fans wondering what could have been if the team had put it all together earlier. In 2015 the high flying West Virginia offense will turn over to Junior Skylar Howard who threw for over 340 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Liberty Bowl. With weapons like Daikiel Shorts, and Jordan Thompson, the 2015 West Virginia offense should be one of the most dangerous in the country once again. The biggest question for the Mountaineers yet again in 2015 will be their defense with 7 seniors slated to start, Mountaineers fans are hoping this is the year they can put together a solid defensive outing to match their high scoring offense. The toughest games on the West Virginia Mountaineers 2015 schedule will all be on the road as WVU travels to Oklahoma, Baylor, TCU, and Kansas State.
2014 West Virginia Football Preview
The Mountaineers success in 2014 will lay heavily on the shoulders of senior quarterback Clint Trickett. Trickett amassed over 1,500 yards passing in 2013, and looks to try and double those numbers for his senior year. The offense lost outstanding running back Charles Sims to the NFL draft, and will now lean even more heavily on the passing game. West Virginia was not interested in inching into the season as they scheduled a neutral site game against Alabama in week 1. West Virginia will look for the defense to be much improved from a year ago, and for the offense to return to 2012 form. If the Mountaineers can put both of those things together, they should find themselves near the top of the Big 12 standings.
2013 West Virginia Football Preview
After seeing their starting quarterback and top two receivers be drafted to the NFL, the West Virginia Mountaineers will be searching for the next Geno Smith, Tavon Austin, and Stedman Bailey to keep them afloat in the college football world. Head coach Dana Holgorsen has done an admirable job in his two seasons at Morgantown, winning 17 games over that span. Holgorsen will hope the depth at running back will stabilize an offense that will have a new quarterback and a new top receiver. Junior Andrew Buie, junior Dustin Garrison and Houston transfer Charles Sims will be the catalyst in the running game and should help in the passing game as well.
The Big 12 will again be one of the tougher conferences in football, and West Virginia will use the 60,000 fans packed in Mountaineer Field to their advantage when Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Texas come to Morgantown.
2011 West Virginia Football Preview
There has been a lot of uncertainty when it comes to Big East football over the last several years, but West Virginia can always be counted on to be among the best teams in the league. With an experienced coach and a slew of returning starters, the Mountaineers are once again the favorite to win the conference title.
The offense will be led by junior quarterback Geno Smith, who has all the physical skills to be a top-notch signal caller, and will certainly not be lacking in surrounding talent. Tavon Austin, who can be called upon to play both running back and wide receiver, will be a great replacement for Noel Devine, and should provide a spark. With a number of other playmakers, one thing is for certain: West Virginia will be fun to watch.
Though the offense may put up a lot points, it remains to be seen whether the defense will be up to the task, especially given that it’s only returning four starters from last year's excellent quad. Early indications point to a reliable collection of players led by defensive end Bruce Irvin and linebacker Najee Goode. They will have to hold down a roster of defensive upstarts to make a West Virginia run at the title a possibility.
2010 West Virginia Football Preview
After back-to-back nine-win seasons, fans of the West Virginia Mountaineers football team have to be pleased that the squad's roster is full of returning starters entering the 2010 season.
The Mountaineers are not far removed from being ranked among college football's top teams. In 2007, West Virginia started the season as the third ranked team, reached the number one position in the Coaches Poll and finished the year with a Fiesta Bowl win. After several years of steady play and plenty of experience in their returning starters, the team is ready to reach the top of the polls and the Big East Conference again.
All eyes will be on senior running back Noel Devine, who ran for 14 touchdowns and more than 1,400 yards last season. The prized rusher announced over the offseason that he would return to the Mountaineers, in lieu of entering in the NFL draft. Some of the big games in West Virginia's schedule include the home opener in the Friends of Coal Bowl against Marshall on September 10, and a showdown against Big East rival Pittsburgh in the traditional Backyard Brawl on November 26.
2009 West Virginia Football Preview
2009 will be year two of that Head Coach Bill Stewart leads the West Virginia Mountaineers. Stewart and WVU hope to improve upon the 9 wins the team had in 2008. West Virginia will once again have a dynamic offense that is capable of scoring on every possession. If the Mountaineers can get their defense and special teams clicking look out for WVU to make big waves in the Big East Conference.
2008 West Virginia Football Preview
West Virginia is back from a stellar 2007 season, notching a co-championship in the Big East and boasting an 11-2 overall record for the season. The team also upset #3 Oklahoma in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl, winning the bowl game 48-28. Look for a big start in 2008, as West Virginia is looking strong coming into the season. With the entire offensive line returning, and Heisman contender Pat White in the line-up, this 2008 Mountaineers team is going to reach the endzone on more than a few occasions.
The Mountaineers will be up against a tougher schedule this season, so it should be interesting to see how this team will fare. The team also has a new head coach, Bill Stewart, who has impressed West Virginia fans already by leading the team to victory over Oklahoma in the 2007 season. White and tailback Noel Devine are set to make this team an offensive force, so get off the couch and in the stands over at Mountaineer Field!
