The Norman Transcript

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Clint Trickett threw a touchdown pass in his first start at West Virginia, Ishmael Banks returned an interception for a touchdown and the Mountaineers shocked No. 11 Oklahoma State 30-21 on Saturday.

Josh Lambert kicked three field goals for West Virginia (3-2, 1-1 Big 12), which rebounded from its first shutout loss in 11 years to outlast the mistake-prone Cowboys.

Trickett became West Virginia’s third starting quarterback this season after Ford Childress was injured last week. Trickett finished 24 of 50 for 309 yards.

But after taking a 24-14 halftime lead, West Virginia was held out of the end zone in the second half and relied on its defense to slow down J.W. Walsh.
