"Everybody treats senior day the same way,'' Holgorsen said. "Regardless of what your record is, it means a lot to everybody that it's the last time that these seniors are going to play. Everybody treats it the same, so I would assume we're going to be as motivated to play as anyone across the country.''
West Virginia's senior class includes linebacker Tyler Anderson, defensive lineman Will Clarke, safety Darwin Cook, defensive lineman Trevor Demko, offensive lineman Pat Eger, linebacker Dozie Ezemma, offensive lineman Curtis Feigt, offensive lineman Nick Kindler, running back Nate Majnaric, safety William Marable, receiver Ivan McCartney, linebacker Doug Rigg, nose guard Shaq Rowell and running back Charles Sims.
"We've got to play for the seniors,'' Holgorsen said. "There's about 14 of them that have given a lot to this program and been through a lot of change. Their attitude has been phenomenal.''
Whether Trickett starts, though, remains up in the air according to Holgorsen, who also has Paul Millard and Ford Childress available.
"We'll see what their mood is and what their mentality is and how they practice out here the next three or four days,'' Holgorsen said.
Others, though, including two of those 14 seniors, are questionable. That includes Cook, Feigt, cornerback Daryl Worley and linebacker Isaiah Bruce.
