MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The best part of Dana Holgorsen’s bye week news conference? Saying bye-bye to the Baylor game, a 73-42 loss that left West Virginia at .500 overall and 1-2 in the Big 12.
Holgorsen also provided key injury updates:
♦ Quinton Spain, who left with a second-half concussion at Baylor, should be clear to face Texas Tech Oct. 19.
♦ Clint Trickett will rest his sore shoulder this week in hopes of healing up in time for Texas Tech preparations.
♦ Linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (hamstring), a key element in the middle of WVU’s defense, is probable for next week’s game after missing the past two.
♦ Receivers Ivan McCartney (concussion) and Mario Alford (shoulder), who missed the Baylor game, are expected to return for Texas Tech, along with running back Dustin Garrison.
