Team preview: West Virginia
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college football season, exclusively on Insider.
West Virginia is coming off a season in which it won the Big East title and made a New Year's Day appearance in the Toyota Gator Bowl.
Over the last two seasons, the Mountaineers are 12-2 in the Big East, with the only two losses being heartbreakers against Miami. That big obstacle in South Florida is gone, replaced on the schedule by the slightly less intimidating James Madison. The Morgantown crew emerged from the spring as the trendy national pick to breeze to another Big East title and a BCS berth.
