Morgantown: Perfect for Big 12 clash

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- The clouds covering Milan Puskar Stadium are expected to clear by kickoff and the town is hoppin' before tonight's game against Kansas State. I'll be on hand all night to bring you coverage via Twitter during the game and on the blog once it's over.

Stedman Bailey (ankle) is expected to play tonight, but how effective will he be? If he's clearly hobbled, you may see Kansas State's defense focus on Tavon Austin like Texas Tech did a week ago and have some success limiting the high-powered Mountaineers offense.

The task ahead of Allen Chapman and Nigel Malone is a tough one, but they'll get plenty of help from the offense. Kansas State is without a doubt going to win the battle of time of possession. How lopsided that battle is won should be a major indicator of whether or not Kansas State gets out of Mountaineer Field with a win and a comfy seat at the head of the Big 12 title table.
