West Virginia had a sneaky good season last year and, at this point, seems to be the most likely spot thus far where Arizona may drop a game. Garrett Greene has emerged as a solid dual-threat quarterback for West Virginia, posting 2,406 passing yards and 16 touchdowns along with 772 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. The Mountaineers had a potent rushing offense that won them the Duke's Mayo Bowl last year, with a pair of underclassmen running backs who eclipsed 800 yards from scrimmage on the season in Jahiem White and CJ Donaldson Jr. set to return in 2024. Arizona linebackers Jacob Manu and Justin Flowe will be put to the test alongside the rest of the front seven on the defense.
Also, don't be surprised if West Virginia Basketball guard Kerr Kriisa takes the trip out to Tucson to see some of his former teammates with Arizona Basketball and cheer on his new school.
