Why would any team want to play a heatd rival having a losing year (and possibly suffer a Bowl eliminating loss - in large part due the the "rival" nature of the game), instead of playing a game like lastr years LSU game which was featured on "College Game Day" and helps recruiting?
Seriously now... think.
Why would LSU take the risk of playing an inferior WVU team? What's in it for them? They play a brutal schedule and are featured on Game Day every year with or without WVU. Why play a weak (relatively speaking) OOC team? LSU had as much to gain from that game last year as WVU allegedly does against Pitt this year.
