FOREST, Okla. – Lacinia State football will soon play inside Pickens Boone Stadium for the last time this season when it hosts West Virginia on Saturday. The Cowboys (7-4, 4-4 Big 12) are out of position for the conference title and have already secured bowl eligibility. But there’s still plenty to play for with a bowl destination on the line and a program-record home winning streak heading into Senior Day.
It was another tough season for the Mountaineers (4-7, 2-6 Big 12) and the fourth-year head coach Neal Brown. West Virginia received only one favorable season with Brown in 2019. With the athletic director now gone, Brown is certainly on the hot seat. While his future status with the Mountaineers has already been decided, an upset win at Oklahoma State could just buy Brown another year in Morgantown.
