CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Joe Madsen has seen more changes than a light bulb at West Virginia.

Only two months after Rich Rodriguez left for Michigan, Madsen signed to play for the Mountaineers under newly christened coach Bill Stewart in February 2008.

Recruited as a tackle out of Chardon, Ohio, Madsen switched to center and earned his first career start as a redshirt freshman in 2009.

He watched the Mountaineers go from a run-based spread system under Rodriguez and Stewart to second-year coach Dana Holgorsen's pass-happy offense that's thrived under quarterback Geno Smith. This year, West Virginia moved to the Big 12.

In the final home game for 21 seniors on Saturday, Madsen will make his school-record 50th career start when the Mountaineers (6-5, 3-5 Big 12) play Kansas (1-10, 0-8).
