The oddsmakers are also expecting a high-scoring affair in this year's Orange Bowl, as the over-under is set at 62 total points. Each team brings an average to below average defense to this BCS matchup, while both offenses feature some of the better playmakers in college football. West Virginia will be without leading rusher Dustin Garrison, but that hasn't affected the over-under as it has climbed up two points since the oddsmakers set it at 60.

The Mountaineers will enter as three-point underdogs, looking to pull off the upset in what will likely be their last time representing the Big East in the BCS.
