Mountaineers stay hot, set up crucial game with TCU next week in Morgantown

No. 22 West Virginia has proved this year that they are a team that knows how to close the door.

That fact remained a constant Saturday in Stillwater, as the Mountaineers rattled off 20 unanswered points in the final half—highlighted by a 3rd quarter Dravon Henry 52-yard interception return for a touchdown—en route to a 34-10 road victory over Oklahoma State.

WVU (6-2, 4-1) held the Cowboys scoreless in the second half, keeping them under 200 total yards and allowing just two trips inside their own territory in that span.

Tied with TCU for 2nd place in the Big 12, the surprise Mountaineers, a heavily-dependent air attack team, showed that they run on other cylinders offensively, targeting Wendell Smallwood who racked up 132 yards, contributing to a team total of 210 yards as a team.

The heavy stock has been played on quarterback Clint Trickett this season, who once again paid off, tallying up 238 yards on 21 of 30 passing with two touchdowns, including a 79-yard strike to Mario Alford in the 2nd quarter making it a 14-0 difference.

Oklahoma State (3-2, 5-3), who made it a closer than comfort game midway through the 2nd quarter thanks to an 8-yard hook up from Daxx Garman to Teddy Johnson, went into the half down 14-10.

Two huge field goals off the foot of Josh Lambert, including a 43-yarder that made it a 20-10 game, kicked off the 2nd half and kept the Cowboys from getting any closer.

WVU totaled up 448 yards with no turnovers, answering a sloppy three turnover game it had last week in its upset victory over Baylor.

The Mountaineers, who haven’t lost since a 45-33 setback to Oklahoma on Sept. 20, will have a pivotal matchup next Saturday with TCU in a fight for second place in the Big 12, and one step closer to conference supremacy, pending the results of Kansas State’s matchup with Oklahoma State.

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
