jiMpossible-sarcasMike Trophy. The Wildcats kept Texas Tech's reign a short one, with a 55-24 victory.
Two times before they had played for the trophy - both in 1997. They lost to BYU 19-15 on January 1 in the Cotton Bowl and then on October 4, they lost to co-MNC Nebraska 56-26.
The Wildcats also earned the #2 ranking in the BCS this week. To stay on the path for the MNC, they have a somewhat challenging schedule. This Saturday night they host #24 Oklahoma State. They go on the road the following 2 weeks at TCU and at Baylor, before finishing off the regular season hosting Texas on December 1.
They'll be favored in every game, but as WVU can tell you, the favorite doesn't always win in trophy games!
