Week 5 Odds: West Virginia at Texas

The Mountaineers are big underdogs this week.

West Virginia is back to even after defeating Towson and Virginia Tech in back-to-back weeks. The Mountaineers were up and ready for the challenge in Blacksburg which allowed them to retain possession of the Black Diamond Trophy for the foreseeable future.
