Liberty Bowl: Texas A&M (7-5) vs. West Virginia (7-5)
Memphis, Tenn., Dec. 29, 2 p.m.
In a matchup of two well-recognized Air Raid-type offenses, it's somewhat strange to focus on an area in the backfield not involving the quarterback. All the same, Texas A&M's Achilles heel is stopping the run and West Virginia features some talent at the running back spot.
West Virginia offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson is leaving to become the playcaller and offensive coordinator at Kentucky, a source told FOX Sports Wednesday.
This season Dawson helped the Mountaineers to the nation's No. 9 offense (502 yards per game) that ranked No. 9 in passing and No. 42 in rushing. The Louisiana native coached quarterbacks and helped mentor Dana Holgorsen...

Morgantown, W.Va. – With the dead period coming up for coaches across the country, the West Virginia University football staff has been putting a lot of miles on the road.
Fresh of a AutoZone Liberty Bowl invitation against Texas A&M, the Mountaineers are on the trail meeting with current commitments and those left on the board.

When Texas A&M and West Virginia were announced as Liberty Bowl opponents, you probably perked up a little bit with the thought of the points that would be put up on the score board. Another interesting sub plot is that Texas A&M offensive coordinator Jake Spavital came up under Dana Holgersen.
After the game was announced, they had this epic twitter exchange…
WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen was asked this evening during his first Liberty Bowl press conference about the status of Senior QB Clint Trickett. Holgorsen’s response was one of uncertainty stating, “”He gave it everything he’s got this year, he’s in limbo right now and I don’t know if he’ll be able to go for us, but we will continue to monitor it.”
Like them or not, the bowl match ups are set. As nice as it would have been to see Texas A&M and Texas do battle once again the Aggies are going to be taking on the West Virginia Mountaineers instead. While the banter and trash talk leading up to the game will not be nearly as good as it would have with the t-sips it is not going to be have bad either.Why? Because Texas A&...

There are plenty of things Bob Huggins likes about his West Virginia team, but its recent work on the boards isn't one of them.
The No. 21 Mountaineers might have a good chance to improve their rebounding Saturday night when hosting the College of Charleston, which has been among the nation's worst on the glass.

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen either didn’t agree with a call during the Mountaineers’ game in Austin on Saturday, had a very large itch or just felt like getting his crotch a little face time. Whatever the reasoning was, it provided an amusing moment as he dramatically adjusted his man parts while in full view of

West Virginia senior quarterback Clint Trickett has looked pretty good so far this year, throwing for nearly 3,000 yards, 18 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. But in the photo below, it’s obvious that he makes some questionable decisions. Trickett was photographed by teammate KJ Dillon wearing a USA-themed Kurt Angle-like wrestling suit in the team’s locker room. We don’t...
Couch on fire. Middle fingers raised. A white guy in a WFV t-shirt. Yep. It meets all the West Virginia criteria.

West Virginia kicker Josh Lambert is not afraid of the big stage. On September 13, he nailed a 47-yarder to beat Maryland. Of course, that wasn’t enough to really get Dana Holgorsen’s attention. After the game, the Mountaineers head coach joked (we hope) that he had never spoken to his clutch special teamer.
What did Holgorsen say to Lambert before game-winning kick? “I haven’t...
