With the Texas Longhorns beating the Baylor Bears Monday night the West Virginia Mountaineers, who have lost three of their last five, again find themselves atop the Big 12 Conference.
As of Monday night the Mountaineers are tied with Oklahoma and Baylor at 6-2 in the Big 12 with Iowa State looming Tuesday night. If the Mountaineers can defeat the Cyclones in Ames Tuesday night the Mountaineers would go into their games against Baylor this weekend tied only with the Sooners at the top. Two victories this week would lengthen the Mountaineers lead in the Big 12 with only Oklahoma keeping pace. The Sooners have a much easier path this week with games against TCU and Kansas State.
Despite the Mountaineers recent struggles they still control their own destiny heading into their last month of the season.
