Bleacher Report picks West Virginia to beat Texas Tech

While not outside of the realm of possibility, the idea that this is going to be a typical Big 12 scoring fiesta is a little outlandish. While both teams give up a ton of yards, they’ve both proven that they aren’t awful at taking the ball away and not allowing the other team to score.

West Virginia has had to play some strong offenses so far this season, and their defense looked good in the first half against TCU. Texas Tech played extremely well against Oklahoma State, and their defense has scored three touchdowns off turnovers so far this year.

It could go the other way though. Nic Shimonek and Will Grier could completely catch fire, they both have the ability to light up defenses. However, the notion that this is just going to be a typical Big 12 game is outlandish. Both of these teams have the capability to do big things on the defensive side of the ball. They’re not going to shut anyone out, but they’re going to do just enough to win the game, and that’s all that matters.
