WVU hosts Thursday night football in 2014

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Big 12 and its schools unveiled their 2014 football schedule, and the most eye-catching facet for West Virginia fans is a Thursday night home game against Kansas State on Nov. 20.

While the opponents have been scheduled for ages, Tuesday’s release verified the sequence of conference games and the slotting of bye weeks. WVU will be idle in Week 3 before hosting Oklahoma and again in Week 12 before the K-State visit.

Also, for the first time since joining the Big 12, West Virginia won’t have back-to-back league road games.

Thursday night games—a product of TV dictating schedules—are by no means a weekly event in the Big 12, but there are at least two other midweek matchups: Texas Tech at Oklahoma State (Sept. 25) and the Thanksgiving showdown between TCU at Texas (Nov. 27). A third Thursday game, Oklahoma at Iowa State on Oct. 30, could flex back to Saturday depending on network shuffling.

A look at the Mountaineers’ complete 2014 schedule, including a ho-hum season opener at the Georgia Dome:

Aug. 30   Alabama (Atlanta)
Sept. 6    Towson
Sept. 13  at Maryland
Sept. 27  Oklahoma
Oct. 4      Kansas
Oct. 11    at Texas Tech
Oct. 18    Baylor
Oct. 25    at Oklahoma State
Nov. 1     TCU
Nov. 8     at Texas
Nov. 20   Kansas State
Nov. 29   at Iowa State

Mountaineers move into spring with proven commodities, but also several unknowns on offense
Along with a new offensive coordinator and a pair of new position coaches, WVU will have a different starting quarterback than what it began the 2022 season with. The Mountaineers, which lost the majority of their receiving production, do benefit from heaving a wealth of experience back along the offensive line and at running back.
