WVU Projected To Liberty Bowl

Morgantown, W.Va. – The time has finally arrived. After weeks of speculation, its judgement day for teams across the college landscape. When it comes to the Top 6 teams in contention for the College Football Playoff, they all took care of business on Saturday.

The talk of the night comes out of the Big 12 Conference where the lack of a conference title game could hurt the efforts of TCU and Baylor, and move an impressive Ohio State into the No. 4 spot.

All of that will be known at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, but for now, has updated their bowl projections for the year.

For weeks, all signs have pointed West Virginia to the Liberty Bowl against a team from the SEC with both Tennessee and Arkansas mentioned.
