The West Virginia Mountaineers square off with the Brigham Young University Cougars on Saturday, at FedEx Field in Landover, MD, in what will be the first ever meeting between the two programs, but there's something about this matchup that feels natural (at least to me).

Video: West Virginia WR Druw Bowen makes one-handed snag in practice

They say that practice makes perfect and if that is the case, West Virginia wide receiver Druw Bowen is pretty ready for the Mountaineers game against the BYU Cougars Saturday. He made an amazing play during the team’s practice on Thursday and I think Skyler Howard will throw his way more often.
