(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By JOHN RABY AP Sports Writer West Virginia must rely on a patched lineup to make a final push over its two remaining games to get bowl eligible. Injuries have decimated the Mountaineers (4-6, 2-5 Big 12), who have been hit hard especially on defense and aren't sure who their starting quarterback will be on Saturday at Kansas (2-7, 0-6). West Virginia defensive coordinator Keith Patterson says he's counted 15 injured players on defense, including 10 who are out for the season. Injuries claimed linebacker Jared Barber and safety K.J. Dillon in last week's 47-40 overtime loss to Texas. Quarterback Clint Trickett left last week's game with a concussion. He participated in practice this week but coach Dana Holgorsen says it remains to be seen whether he'll be ready for Saturday's game.
