Are Mountaineers a playoff contender?

West Virginia has yet to play a Big 12 game, but the Mountaineers are one of just two teams in the league without a loss. Should they be on our playoff radar? Eliminator

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen, whose team sits among just two remaining Big 12 unbeatens, said he considers the Mountaineers a contender for the league title this year: "Yeah, I'd like to think so. I think our team believes that." Holgorsen, as league play opens for his team Saturday against Kansas State, dismisses the Big 12's poor showing in September non-conference games. "The Big 12 is a challenging league. I don't care what their records are. ... It doesn't look any different to me than it ever has been."
