Other Interesting Lines
West Virginia (-8) vs. Tennessee
: The Jeremy Pruitt era gets underway in difficult fashion against a West Virginia team that should be considered a Big 12 dark horse. At (-8), I like the Mountaineers at the moment.
Texas Tech vs. Ole Miss (Push): The Red Raiders are playing in their home state, are doing so against a team that’s been hit by sanctions and that will have dealt with an offseason of distractions. Ole Miss remains a talented team at the top of the roster, but give me Texas Tech straight up here.

A pivotal factor for the Mountaineers is the return of Will Grier, who will be the most experienced returning quarterback in the Big 12 and has been mentioned as a dark-horse Heisman candidate. While they will likely continue to win their share of shootouts, the defense remains a major concern. West Virginia gave up more than 200 rushing yards per game last year and also loses the top three players from its secondary. A tough nonconference slate doesn't help matters as a 1-2 start looms as a real possibility. The Mountaineers could easily push this total, but eight wins feels ambitious and six or fewer isn't out of the question.
