MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — After getting a week off due to the canceled N.C. State game, West Virginia University returns to action Saturday in a Big 12 contest.
Mountaineers’ Head Coach Dana Holgorsen during a news conference Tuesday talked about his team’s upcoming game with Kansas State. Video of the news conference can be viewed below:
"Obviously, K-State is always a fun game for us," Holgorsen said. "It's been pretty competitive, about as competitive as it can get - four or five games, so we're expecting this weekend to be no different than that."
Holgorsen said the Wildcats, led by veteran coach Bill Snyder, have had great continuity in the team's coaching staff.
"They're well coached. They play with great effort and don't make a lot of mistakes," Holgorsen said.
WVU (2-0) is ranked No. 12 in the latest poll by The Associated Press. The Mountaineers opened with a 40-14 victory over Tennessee and then defeated Youngstown State, 52-17.
This past Saturday’s scheduled game against N.C. State in Raleigh, N.C., was canceled due to what was then-Hurricane Florence.
Meanwhile, Kansas State brings a 2-1 record into Morgantown. The Wildcats opened with a 27-24 win over South Dakota and then fell to Mississippi State, 31-10. Last weekend, K-State picked up a 41-17 victory over UTSA.
The kickoff for WVU’s game with Kansas State is 3:30 p.m. at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown.
