West Virginia gets some attention in ESPN's Bowl Projections.

With the college football season about ready to get underway this week, it's time to look ahead with some bowl projections, according to ESPN.com.

In the piece, the West Virginia Mountaineers are expected to make it all the way to the AT&T Cotton Bowl to square off against the No. 3 or No. 4 SEC team.

With West Virginia entering the season as a new Big 12 Conference member and the 11th ranked team in the nation, there's plenty of excitement brewing. If this projection comes true, Mountaineer fans would have to be feeling very good about the program's direction under Dana Holgorsen.

The schedule certainly isn't going to be a cakewalk in 2012. No longer in the Big East, West Virginia will have a stretch of four ranked opponents in five contests, including road games at Texas and Oklahoma State before a home date with the No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners.
