MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Collin Klein vs. Geno Smith. A showcase of Heisman Trophy contenders. A share of Big 12 supremacy at stake. No. 4 Kansas State at No. 17 West Virginia has implications on several fronts.
The Wildcats (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) can keep first place to themselves on Saturday night in Morgantown while maintaining their national championship hopes.
The Mountaineers (5-1, 2-1) had similar dreams dashed last week, but they still have BCS aspirations and will try to create a three-way tie atop the conference.
Smith might need one of his typical big passing games to get it done. Standing in his way is Klein, the mobile Kansas State quarterback who has climbed into the Heisman Trophy discussion alongside Smith.
