My book doesn't have a line yet. I really like the Buffs getting 4 here.  I also would like to see what the Under will be.

Initially I like Colorado but obviously not because they're good.  They're so bad that this line is incredibly ridiculous and therefore the play almost certainly must be against the public consensus and on the side of the dog.
 
This line should somewhere between 7 and 9.5 ... Colorado losing until late in the 4th quarter to E. Washington... and a couple lucky plays away from being in a last minute thriller with Colorado State (who is one of the worst teams in the country anyway).  W. Virginia losing to one of the most underrated teams in the country (still).
 
Will have to watch this line very very carefully.  Must say hoping the total drops a little bit because then I'll play the under heavy.  Nice little public fade if the line moves down.

That being said... Colorado is pretty good through the air and WVU's defense has been a little weak so far this year.  Giving up 300 yds to Villanova is never a good sign.

in fact... this is barely a shell of a team that beat OU in the bcs bowl... but... this is a better team than the Colorado team that also happened to beat OU last year...

WVU is supposedly going back to their zone blocking scheme instead of the pass blocking sheme they have been using in the first 2 games. More ground and option play is their aim so that White can get back to the old spread style they used in the previous years. White is not a pocket passer, which is what they have been trying to make him. More importantly this will allow the o-line to get back to their comfort zone instead of waiting to get hit pass blocking. WVU should be able to put some points on the board.
As for COL- think the poor performance last week can be thrown out since they were probably looking ahead to the WVU game and a couple days off. Not to mention they will get back 2 of their starting o-lineman who were replaced last game by a freshman & redshirt freshman- they played horrible. Think they should be able to move the ball too.
Think I will play the over! GLTA

just realized some people are probably reading a lot into the last game Colorado played against EWashington... its easy to look at some of those non-BCS games and assume they should be one-sided games... but when it involved the cream of the crop among FCS teams, those games are rarely easy for any BCS school...
 
EWash is a top 10 FCS school... just FYI...

West Virginia - 21                             Colorado - 20
BUFFS +3                      UNDER
There was a time when the Mountaineers were lousy road favorites. That trend may reappear with this outfit.
Take the Buffs and the 3 points.

ok wv was overrated coming into the season.  but it doesnt mean theyre a bad football team (yet at least).  they were embarrassed by ecu and had a week off to really work on their game.  i cant see them losing this one. 
 
wv -3 (maybe -2.5 if i decide to buy it)
