After two games on the road, the West Virginia Mountaineers are heading back home. The Mountaineers and the Baylor Bears will face off in a Big 12 battle at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’
The contest between West Virginia and the Texas Longhorns last week was not particularly close, with West Virginia falling 38-20. West Virginia was down 35-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. No one had a standout game offensively for West Virginia, but they got scores from RB Justin Johnson Jr., RB Tony Mathis Jr., and WR Kaden Prather.
Meanwhile, Baylor came up short against the Oklahoma State Cowboys last week, falling 36-25. A silver lining for the Bears was the play of WR Monaray Baldwin, who caught seven passes for two TDs and 174 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Baldwin has posted more than 100 yards receiving.
The Mountaineers are expected to lose this next one by 3.5. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
West Virginia is now 2-3 while Baylor sits at a mirror-image 3-2. West Virginia is 1-1 after losses this season, Baylor 1-0.

CASEY LEGG. That’s all. ๐Ÿฆต๐Ÿ™Œ#BAYvsWVU
The short 22-yard kick for WVU is good. Baylor trails 43-40 with 33-seconds go do.
Fourth down coming up for WVU. A bad angle on the kick for WVU. Can the Bears get this blocked?
.@_tmathiss24 GOING CRAZY ๐Ÿ’ช
283 yards on the ground for WVU right now. Just not acceptable.
Run defense has been awful. First and goal for WVU and they are in control.
Chops. @Johndmayers6#SicEm | #PersonOverPlayer pic.twitter.com/GUfLozna0a
First return allowed all game and WVU is out to the 34-yard line. Can’t let that happen.

Pass is incomplete as Drones is high going to Holmes. A long field goal coming up for Baylor to try and tie it.
