The West Virginia Mountaineers are synonymous with their greatest player: Geno Smith. To speak of WVU without speaking of Smith is rarely found, but as Kansas State faces off against West Virginia tonight for the Big 12 showdown of the year so far, the Wildcats are careful to dismiss the rest of the team.
Smith might be the MVP, but the Mountaineers are talented all around. That's something that K-State's head coach Bill Snyder focused on this week.
"They have a very talented football team, and it is not just Geno Smith," said Snyder. "They have extremely fine receivers. They have a very talented offense. They have good specialists. They have good return guys who also serve as wide receivers. I know their numbers have not been as good on defense, but they have been able to outscore people. They have been able to play well on defense when they have to."
It will be interesting to see how much the Wildcats practice and prepared for the entire team. Even if they can help limit Smith, the Mountaineers can impact the game in all facets of the game.
The Big 12 will find out what each team is made of when the two face off tonight at 7:00 p.m.
