So far, in 2010, the Big East conference has taken a beating in non-conference games, including Pitt’s recent beat down at the hands of the Miami Hurricanes on Thursday night, 31-3, and UConn’s loss to Temple the week before. WVU, though, will have a tough time representing the Big East banner as Las Vegas College Football Odds have placed LSU as a 10-point favorite.
WVU (3-0) has been battle-tested against a game Marshall group, 24-21 in overtime, and in a 31-17 College Football Predictions victory against the University of Maryland. Against Maryland, WVU jumped out to a 28-0 lead before the Terrapins closed the gap to 28-17. WVU piled-up 469 yards of total offense behind quarterback Geno Smith and halfback Noel Devine. Smith had his best game as a Mountaineer, throwing for 4 touchdown passes and Devine added 131 yards on 27 carries. Smith will need to have another big game to match the powerful LSU offense. College Football Odds at Bodog.com have listed the total for this West Virginia vs LSU is set at 44 points.
LSU (3-0) has opened impressively with a narrow College Football Predictions victory against the University of North Carolina, 30-24, and big wins against Vanderbilt, 27-3, and Mississippi State, 29-7. Though quarterback Jordan Jefferson has done well leading the offense, the running game behind Stevan Ridley and Russell Shepard has fueled the attack.
WVU held the Terrapins to -10 yards rushing so their number one game plan will be to stop Ridley and company. LSU, with Jefferson, can toss the ball, if need be, and WVU showed last week that they are vulnerable to a good passing game. LSU will need to be balanced to win, while looking to cool off Smith. North Carolina’s T. J. Yates in the opener proved that LSU is susceptible to a good passing attack and Smith vs. the LSU secondary is the key to the outcome of this game. If Smith can hit some big plays, LSU might have some difficulties keeping-up.
Vegas-spreads.com College Football Predictions Look for WVU to keep the game close, covering the Vegas spread, but LSU take away the win and maintain the Big East’s losing ways in non-conference games.
