It’s a gorgeous evening for football here in Iowa.
A few notes here to get everyone set for No. 6 West Virginia’s game here in Ames against Iowa State tonight.
- All-American running back David Montgomery missed last week’s game for ISU, but is listed as a starter today.
- WVU lists four running backs — Leddie Brown, Kennedy McKoy, Martell Pettaway and Alec Sinkfield — as possible starters, which is in line with how the Mountaineers have used the back this season. Whoever ends up being the starter, expect to see the others on the field as well. If Sinkfield gets in the game, it’ll be his first action since a September win against Youngstown State in Morgantown.
- Tonight’s game will be the first start for Iowa State freshman quarterback Brock Purdy.
- Your offensive line starters for WVU are: LT – Cajuste; LG – Josh Sills; C – Matt Jones; RG – Chase Behrndt OR Joe Brown; RT – Colton McKivitz.
- The wind is whipping pretty hard here right now from my right to left toward the open end of Jack Trice Stadium.
