MORGANTOWN- The Mountaineers are headed to Manhattan, Ks. this weekend, and for quarterback Clint Trickett the game against Kansas State has deeper meaning than just football.
Clint Trickett has been a fan of Kansas State Head Coach Bill Snyder since he was little.
"I've always looked up to him, even when I was younger," said Trickett.
This weekend Trickett will get his chance to play against Snyder's ball club when the Mountaineers travel to Manhattan to take on the Kansas State Wildcats, and he is excited for the opportunity.
"Coach Snyder is a legend," said Trickett. "He doesn't have the best situation in Manhattan, but he continues to find ways to win. I'm ready for this weekend to have a chance to play against a legend."
The junior quarterback will lead West Virginia into Bill Snyder Family Stadium on Saturday afternoon in search of their first road win of the season. Both teams come into the matchup this weekend looking for answers. For Kansas State, they are in search of their first win in the Big 12 Conference. The Wildcats nearly pulled of an upset against Baylor in their last game, but the Bears' speed proved to be too much in the late stages of the game, as Baylor went on to win 35-25. On the other side, West Virginia continues to search for answers on offense.
The Mountaineer offense seemed to hit stride last weekend early in the second half before being forced to five straight three-and-outs by the Texas Tech defense to end the game.
Kansas State and West Virginia meet up Saturday afternoon at 3:45 p.m. central time in Manhattan.
