WEST VIRGINIA RUMORS

Texas Tech-West Virginia Preview

Big 12 play isn't doing much to slow West Virginia from bringing out the worst in opponents' ball handling. That seems unlikely to change Saturday at home against last-place Texas Tech, which turns the ball over more than all but one team in the conference. The 17th-ranked Mountaineers (17-3, 5-2) lead the nation with 22.1 turnovers forced per game and a plus-9.7 turnover differential...

GIF: TCU Loses To West Virginia After Fouling Jevon Carter With 1 Second Remaining

TCU nearly landed a massive win in Morgantown against the No. 18 West Virginia Mountaineers, a game that would have given some legitimacy to TCU’s impressive early season record.

Texas A&M Defensive Back De'Vante Harris did not mean to grab West Virginia place kicker Josh Lambert in the family jewels on this play.

The rest of us will see it as it is.It was incidental contact as he flew by in an attempt to block the kick.@SBNationGIF...

WATCH: West Virginia's K.J. Dillon Picks Off Texas A&M's Kyle Allen; Returns for a TD

The problem with replacing your quarterback as late in the season as Texas A&M did is that he is having to learn a lot of things on the fly rather than pick them up steadily through practice. So mistakes should be expected.The only problem is sometimes those mistakes can really sting--like here when Kyle Allen throws an interception that K.J. Dillon returns for a touchdown to...

Dana Holgorsen and Jake Spavital’s epic twitter exchange

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… Got'em....

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...

WVU Kicker Josh Lambert Jokes That Dana Holgorsen “Finally Talked To Him” After 55-Yard Game Winning Field Goal

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...
