The Oklahoma State Cowboys had a chance to move into the top 10 in the national rankings with a win Saturday. But the West Virginia Mountaineers of head coach Dana Holgorsen had other ideas, and upset the 11th-ranked Cowboys 30-21 in Morgantown, W.Va. Here are images from the Cowboys first loss of the season.

West Virginia answers the bell against Oklahoma State

As we usually find out every Saturday in college football, what happens one week usually doesn't have much to do with what happens the next and West Virginia's victory of Oklahoma State on Saturday proved just that. "Our team bought in to just getting out there and playing ball. That's what they did. That was a heck of a ballgame," Dana Holgorsen said after...

Mountaineers, Holgorsen face No. 11 Oklahoma State

Another game, another starting QB for West Virginia

Who's the next starting quarterback for West Virginia? That would be Florida State transfer Clint Trickett who Dana Holgorsen announced on Thursday would start for the Mountaineers against Oklahoma State Saturday in Morgantown. That makes three starting quarterbacks in five games for West Virginia which is obviously not an ideal situation. But given the offense's performance...

Another Challenge

After seeing the way his team played against Maryland a week ago, West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen wanted to see a quick turnaround from the Mountaineers. He didn't want to see them get too down after the loss with Oklahoma State coming into town.

OSU Arrives For Showdown With West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, W.V. - The big talk around the West Virginia University campus has to do with the change at quarterback to the third different player this season.
