West Virginia: QB Clint Trickett. The senior has had a complete turnaround from a 2013 season in which he threw for seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in seven starts. He's surpassed 300 yards in his last four games, including career highs of 511 yards and four TDs against Maryland.


The last time Oklahoma and West Virginia met in Morgantown two years ago also was at night and was a dandy. Landry Jones threw six TD passes, including a 5-yarder to Kenny Stills with 24 seconds left to seal a 50-49 win. ... West Virginia has had little trouble moving the ball this season but has had trouble finishing drives, coming away without points on six of 19 chances inside the 20-yard line. ... Oklahoma beat Tennessee last week in Norman, Oklahoma, and doesn't have another home game until Oct. 18 against Kansas State, a span of five weeks.
