Solid In The Middle: Trickett, Orlosky On KU

West Virginia expects a motivated, highly-energized Kansas team to challenge it along the line and in the running game on Saturday. Here, quarterback Clint Trickett and center Tyler Orlosky delve into the specifics of what makes the Jayhawks tick, and what the Mountaineers can do to counter.

Trickett, who has thrown for 1,600 yards and nine scores on 126 of 175 passing, talks about the Mountaineer aerial attack, and his relationship with wideout Kevin White. Trickett also notes his personal maturation, and how he has emerged as a leader, both on the field and in the locker room, as well as detailing portions of KU's defense and how to approach a team bent on ball control and limiting big plays.

Orlosky, who played half of the game during West Virginia's 31-19 loss in Lawrence last season, talks about the confusion the Kansas front tries to create, how playing a similarly-styled Oklahoma team might aid in recognition and play call management, and if the Jayhawks are underrated as a defensive line unit - perhaps being one that could indeed play evenly with the Mountaineers.
