After heading to Monroe, Louisiana to take on the ULM Warhawks for the first time in program history, Baylor finds itself in Morgantown, West Virginia for the first Big XII game ever played by the West Virginia Mountaineers. Baylor has been put in charge of the Big XII welcoming committee, and to be honest, I hope their debut is an inauspicious one. This is also the first-ever meeting between the two schools, so there's an added element of familiar unfamiliarity in the air.

WVU's Season to Date
I started previewing WVU's season so far last night with their FEI stats. Suffice to say, they have a powerful offense run by QB Geno Smith and HC/Offensive Maestro Dana Holgerson, who should be somewhat familiar to most Baylor fans for his exploits in Stillwater as part of Mike Gundy's staff.
Here's their schedule so far with links to box scores/notes:
|Sep 01||Marshall||FX||W, 69-34|
|Sep 15||vs. James Madison (Landover, Md.)||Root Sports||W, 42-12|
