The West Virginia Mountaineers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Virginia Tech Hokies at 7:30 p.m. ET on Thursday at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field. With a combined 1,099 yards of offense in their previous games, we can expect a fast-paced matchup.
When you finish with 444 more yards than your opponent like the Mountaineers did on Saturday, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They took their contest at home with ease, bagging a 65-7 win over the Towson Tigers. The game was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 45-7. West Virginia’s TE CJ Donaldson was on fire, rushing for three TDs and 101 yards on nine carries. One of the most memorable plays of the matchup was Donaldson’s 82-yard touchdown rush in the first quarter.
Meanwhile, Virginia Tech was no stranger to outgunning their opponent yards-wise, either, with 475 yards compared to the Wofford Terriers’ 208 on Saturday. Virginia Tech enjoyed a cozy 27-7 victory over Wofford. The squad ran away with 20 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the win. Virginia Tech QB Grant Wells was slinging it as he passed for two TDs and 314 yards on 35 attempts.
This next contest is expected to be close, with West Virginia going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. They covered a 41-point spread on Saturday, so bettors might be thinking that will translate to further success against a lower spread.
The wins brought the Mountaineers up to 1-2 and the Hokies to a reciprocal 2-1. A couple stats to keep an eye on: West Virginia enters the contest with 511 yards per game on average, good for 14th best in the nation. But Virginia Tech comes into the contest boasting the fifth fewest yards allowed per game in the nation at 199.7. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.

Touchdown WVU.

No penalty.
At this rate Virginia Tech could have more penalty yards than offensive yards tonight
