Clint Trickett threw a touchdown pass in his first start at West Virginia and engineered two late scoring drives, leading the Mountaineers to a 30-21 win over No. 11 Oklahoma at home.
Trickett, a Florida State transfer, finished 24-of-50 for 309 yards in his first start since subbing for E.J. Manuel for the Seminoles in October 2011
After taking a 24-14 halftime lead, West Virginia (3-2, 1-1) was held out of the end zone in the second half and relied on its defense to slow down J.W. Walsh, who couldn’t bring the Cowboys (3-1, 0-1) back from their first halftime deficit of the season.
Walsh threw three touchdown passes but was intercepted twice.
West Virginia held onto a 24-21 lead until late in the fourth quarter, when kicker Josh Lambert added two field goals to put the game out of reach.
