West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Syracuse Orange Predictions
The Mountaineers were really to fun to watch this season, especially with standout QB Will Grier leading the way. He led his team to average 48.3 points per game this season. Their signature win was at Texas after a two-point conversion at the end of the game. Grier is sitting out because he has nothing else to prove. He’s now in the stage to get ready for the NFL draft. With a draft class so weak at the quarterback position, he can make himself a lot of money. There is no reason to play the meaningless Camping Bowl and risk an injury.
That leaves the door open for Syracuse. The Orange ended the regular season with at 9-3. It was a complete turnaround for a program that had consecutive 4-8 records in the first two years of head coach Dino Babers. Syracuse’s only loss in the last six games was against Notre Dame. The Irish qualified for the college playoffs, so that shouldn’t be a surprise. But for the Orange, this Bowl game has a lot of meaning. It’s their first bowl appearance since Babers took over the job. He wants to win and win big. What’s the play? Syracuse -2.
