Anyone with half a brain knew within a few hours of the passing of old Byrd that there would not be an election for the seat this fall.

It's just not this election. The Constitution states that each House of Congress sets their own rules and handles any disputes regarding elections. I can easily see Pelosi refusing to seat any newly-elected Republican Congressmen, thus maintaining Democrat control, and there's really nothing anyone can do about it.

Article I, Sec 5:

Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members
