Bowl Projections for West Virginia - Week 4

The Mountaineers are getting some respect following last week's win.

Last week, WVU was able to hold off No. 15 Virginia Tech and regain possession on the Black Diamond Trophy. Prior to the win, some media outlets were forecasting that the Mountaineers would not be bowl eligible by season's end. That has since changed as everyone has WVU destined for a bowl game. With a win over No. 4 Oklahoma this week, the Mountaineers' bowl projections could change drastically. 

Here's how the bowl projections stand heading into the second weekend of college football.
