Odds: WVU +4 According to oddsshark.com

Under head coach Dana Holgorsen, the West Virginia offense has produced 30 or more points in 31 contests, 40 or more in 18 games, 50 or more in seven, and 60 or more points three times.

WVU quarterback Clint Trickett has thrown for at least 300 yards in all seven games this season and has 15 touchdown passes and just five interceptions. His first start was against the Cowboys last season and he threw for 309 yards in the Mountaineers’ 30-21 victory.

When Trickett goes down field, he often hooks up with senior Kevin White who has 69 receptions for 1,020 yards and seven touchdowns. The 6-ffot-3, 210-pound wide receiver has at least 100 yards receiving in all seven games this season and has caught at least one touchdown pass in six of them.

When the Mountaineers’ defense takes the field, it is junior linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski leading the way with 55 tackles and nine of those stops are for a loss while junior safety Karl Joseph keeps rolling along with another solid season with 52 tackles.

The OSU offensive line may have their hands full with senior defensive end Shaquille Riddick as he had three quarterback sacks against Baylor last week.

It is Homecoming in Stillwater and Oklahoma State is looking for their fourth straight victory and the seventh in their last eight Homecoming games.

Cowboys junior quarterback Daxx Garman has put together a solid season filling in for the injured J.W. Walsh. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound signal caller has completed 102 of 184 passes for 1,493 yards, seven interceptions, and 10 touchdowns. However, he has been sacked six times in his last two contests.

Garman’s favorite target is junior wide receiver David Glidden who has hauled in 23 passes for 324 yards and a touchdown. Sophomore Jhajuan Seales and freshman James Washington share the team lead with three touchdown catches apiece.

Oklahoma State’s ground game is in the hands of running back Desmond Roland. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior has 475 yards on 119 carries and seven touchdowns in six games.

The Old Gold and Blue special teams will need to keep Tyreek Hill in check as the junior speedster has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns against Texas Tech and Iowa State.

Up Next: West Virginia is back home at Milan Puskar Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 1 to take on the TCU Horned Frogs (5-1, 2-1 Big 12). Time for the kick off is still to be announced.
