MORGANTOWN, W.VA. — Though Clint Trickett threw for 254 yards and avoided throwing an interception for the first time in three starts, he couldn’t get West Virginia’s offense going once No. 16 Texas Tech rallied.
After WVU managed only 33 yards and one first down during its final five drives, Trickett knew the Mountaineers missed their chance at an upset.
“It definitely wasn’t effort—we’ve got a bunch of guys who want to win,” Trickett said. “But when times mattered most, we didn’t play situations as good as we should have—me included.”
The junior transfer, whose throwing shoulder looked healthy after playing through an AC sprain two weeks ago at Baylor, finished 27-of-43 with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Charles Sims.
