Time for the final team in our look across each Big 12 team's nonconference schedule: West Virginia.
William and Mary, Aug. 31
Coach: Jimmye Laycock, 33rd season (215-60-2)
2012 record: 2-9 (1-7, Colonial Athletic)
Offensive headliner: Receiver Tre McBride caught 55 passes for 897 yards and 10 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2012, earning second team all-conference honors.
Defensive headliner: Safety Jerome Couplin led the team with 91 tackles and three interceptions as a junior in 2012. He also had two tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and four pass breakups.
The skinny: The Tribe have a strong program under Laycock, and nearly upset Maryland to begin the 2012 season, losing 7-6. William and Mary are unranked in the FCS poll entering this season, but a bad outing for a WVU offense breaking in a ton of new faces could make this game a little close for comfort.
vs. Georgia State, Sept. 14
Coach: Trent Miles, first season (0-0)
2012 record: 1-10 (1-7, Colonial Athletic)
Returning starters: seven offensive, seven defensive
Offensive headliner: Receiver Albert Wilson is the program's all-time leader in receiving yards. He caught 48 balls for 947 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
Defensive headliner: Defensive lineman Theo Agnew transferred in from UMass and led the team with eight tackles for loss a year ago. He had two sacks and made 60 total tackles.
The skinny: Georgia State has only had a football program since 2010, but will move into FBS classification this season as a member of the Sun Belt. I'd expect a rocky transition as the program continues to try and get its feet underneath it. Hard to see this game being close.
vs. Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Mary., Sept. 21.
Coach: Randy Edsall, third season (6-18)
2012 record: 4-8 (2-6, ACC)
Returning starters: seven offensive, five defensive
Offensive headliner: Receiver/return man Stefon Diggs had a big freshman debut, catching 54 balls for 848 yards and six touchdowns. He also returned two kicks for touchdowns and averaged over 10 yards on his 22 punt returns.
Defensive headliner: Linebacker Cole Farrand led the team with 78 tackles a year ago, and is the team's leading returning player in tackles for loss, with six. He also forced three fumbles a year ago.
The skinny: Maryland was hamstrung by quarterback injuries a year ago, but before it got really bad, they hung with WVU in a 31-21 loss last season that included two long Diggs touchdown catches. This rivalry game is WVU's best shot to lose a game in nonconference play.
Chances of going 3-0: 65 percent
Wrapping up: West Virginia's schedule features two games that should be blowouts and another in which it's likely to be a solid favorite. Maryland is an improving program that's trying to bounce back from a tough season, and is fully capable of knocking off a rebuilding WVU team, especially in Baltimore. If WVU loses a nonconference game, there's about a 95 percent chance that's where it happens. Still, the Mountaineers have a lot of promise on offense, and have a good shot to be better than most think. The Maryland game comes down to a situation dependent on WVU: Play an average game, and West Virginia should walk away a winner.
