West Virginia Tries To Become Bowl Eligible Against Kansas

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia's on-paper match-up with Kansas is decidedly one-sided. Of course, the same was true two seasons ago.

Then, the Jayhawks pulled a stunner, beating the Mountaineers 31-19 in as flat a team performance by WVU as at any time in recent memory. Now, KU is again in the mist of yet another season in the Big 12 basement at 0-10, 0-7 in the league with nary a hope of a cconference win. But that doesn't mean Kansas doesn't have th capability of playing with top tier teams, as it did last Saturday in a 23-17 loss at TCU. The Jayhawks had a chance to win until a late interception ended the threat and allowed the Horned Frogs to escape a lackadasical performance. 

The Mountaineers (5-4, 2-4) are looking to finish with five consecutive wins after an 0-4 October schedule against four foes currently in the top 15. Holgorsen, above, details the game match-ups, including a look at how WVU will the KU version of the air raid as installed by head coach David Beaty, who was an assistant at Texas A&M when the Aggies topped West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl. Holgorsen also updates the status on the injury front regarding the possible return of Yodny Cajuste, and details the progression of his offense to more of a run-based attack.
