Athlon Sports predicts West Virginia to win the Big East.
OL Dan Mozes is named First-Team All-American and First-Team All-Big East.
West Virginia's offensive line, defensive line, and linebackers are rated No. 1 in the Big East.
The Big East regional cover will feature QB Pat White and RB Steve Slaton, and will be available on June 5.
Meanwhile, center Dan Mozes saw his name prominently displayed on another watch list.
The Dave Rimington Trophy today released their spring watch list of top collegiate centers for the 2006 season. This season marks the seventh year of the Rimington Trophy recognizing the most outstanding center in college football and the first as a Regular Member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA).
The spring watch list consists of thirty-nine of college football's top men in the middle and will be updated once prior to the beginning of the season. Five Sophomores, eleven Juniors and twenty-three Seniors make up the very strong field.
"With only one returning finalist (Dan Mozes, West Virginia) from last season the competition will be wide open which will certainly make for an exciting race. Center is a very difficult position to evaluate and of course play so I wish all of the candidates and their respective teams a successful season", said Dave Rimington.
West Virginia was also rated #11 by AutumnSpectacle.com, which is a prediction of where the Mountaineers will finish the season. Louisville was picked #8, and was also tabbed to win the Big East title.
