How much can the Mountaineer football team improve in the span of seven days? It’s the question that will ultimately dictate the outcome of Saturday’s trip to Missouri.

Neal Brown’s squad rallied to beat James Madison last week, while Missouri suffered a stunning upset loss at Wyoming. How will the Tigers respond after a week of criticism from a fan base that had been hoping for an 8-0 start? For the second straight week, the Tigers are a double-digit favorite.

Rushing the football has been the hottest topic in Mountaineer Nation this week. Will the Mountaineers find a way to rush the football? If not, how does WVU score points?

Those topics and more are discussed by Brad Howe, Hoppy Kercheval and Tony Caridi on episode 136 of Three Guys Before The Game.
