The West Virginia Mountaineers conquered the then undefeated, #4-ranked Baylor Bears last Saturday, thanks to a strong defense and magnificent performances by Clint Trickett and Kevin White, who’s the nation’s leading receiver.
Trickett had 322 passing yards and 3 touchdowns, including 2 in the fourth quarter. White had 2 TD catches and 8 catches for 132 yards. He broke the 1,ooo-yard mark for the season and stretched his streak of 100-yard receiving games to 6.
The defense managed to hold the Bears, which had been averaging 623 yards this season, to just 318 yards. In addition, Baylor was only able to convert 3 out of 16 third-down conversion attempts.
Looking ahead to Oklahoma State
As we come off the high of a big win, it’ll be important to avoid looking too far ahead. We still need to take it one game at a time.
After getting clobbered by TCU 45-9 last weekend, we’ll be facing a hungry Oklahoma State team in Stillwater, and we need to be ready. Although we played really well against Baylor, we don’t want to pull a Cleveland Browns. They came off a big 31-10 win against the Steelers, only to fall to the Jaguars 24-6 the following Sunday.
