One-Two Punch

West Virginia produced a steady, scintillating one-two punch in Clint Trickett and Rushel Shell. Here, the players recap the 54-0 whitewashing of Towson, and look ahead to a key game at Maryland next week.

Trickett, who completed 35 of 40 passes for 348 yards in becoming just the second WVU quarterback ever to hit 35 or more passes in a game (Geno Smith), explained his increased comfort in Dana Holgorsen's system, the biggest differences in his game from last year to this and his ice-cold efficiency in dispatching an FCS foe.

Shell, who rushed for 71 yards and his first career WVU score, details his game, the experience of playing at Mountaineer Field and how West Virginia's run game improved upon its red zone struggles in an opening loss to No. 2 Alabama. Shell also looks ahead to a Maryland team that ripped WVU 37-0 in the meeting last year.
