West Virginia Football: Ranking Which Big 12 Teams Should Fear WVU the Most
Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE
Geno Smith will be looking for Big 12 glory in 2012.

The Big 12 just got tougher with the West Virginia Mountaineers around. With the 2012 season, they are poised to make a big entrance into their new conference.

WVU has a potent offense that stems from senior Geno Smith and continues through receivers Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.

They were a free-scoring team last year, averaging 37.6 points per game and destroying Clemson 70-33 in the Orange Bowl.

The perception that the Big 12 is automatically of a higher standard than the Big East isn’t entirely true, but WVU will certainly be up against some powerful offenses this year. That said, there is a reliance on offense over defense throughout the conference, so there will still be plenty of points available in return.

This season is a tough one to call, and it has the potential to go either way for Dana Holgorsen and his team. It’s never easy transitioning to a new conference, but WVU isn't about to make it easy for the opposition, either.
