A perceived difference of styles will be on display on Saturday when No. 12 West Virginia travels to always-tough Kansas State for the two teams' Big 12 Conference-opening clash at Milan Puskar Stadium om Morgantown, W.Va.
West Virginia is thought to be a team that thrives in its high-powered passing attack as directed by Heisman Trophy hopeful quarterback Will Grier. And Kansas State is viewed as a squad that will shorten a game with ball-control offense handled by dual-threat quarterbacks and control an opponent with its stifling defense.
The fact is the two teams are a lot more alike than people think.
