West Virginia will again play a home game in the noon window as the Big 12 Conference announced today the start time for the home game against Kansas State on Saturday, Oct. 31, in Morgantown.

UPDATE: The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

This is the fourth time this season WVU will start at noon, every single home game thus far. The Mountaineers are 3-0 in this time slot this season.

The Mountaineers (3-1, 2-1) defeated Kansas this weekend while the Wildcats (3-1, 3-0) were in a bye week. WVU plays at Texas Tech on Saturday, Oct. 24, and KSU hosts in-state rival KU.

The all-time series is tied 5-5. Since the two teams became Big 12 co-members, the series is 4-4. K-State dominated the first four meetings in conference play, but WVU holds a four-game win streak.

Last year, the Mountaineers triumphed in Manhattan 24-20, with QB Jarret Doege making his first start for the Old Gold and Blue. Doege went 20-30 for 234 yards and three touchdowns.
