Cleanin’ out the sports notebook

Kyle’s Korner ….

The Mingo County Middle School football championship game is Thursday night, which is also the same night as Trick or Treat in the area.

This happened last year. Many feel that the game should be moved to Saturday afternoon. This year’s championship features Burch against Lenore and will be played at Harless Stadium.

If those in charge of the game would move it to Saturday, they would likely get a better turnout and even more media coverage.

…West Virginia also plays on Thursday night. The Mountaineers will travel to face TCU on Thursday, Oct. 29, at 7:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on FS1.

This could also hurt the crowd at the middle school game.

… The Big 12 Conference has announced that WVU’s Saturday, Nov. 7, football game versus Texas Tech at Milan Puskar Stadium will be televised on FS1 at noon.

Tickets can be purchased for the matchup with the Red Raiders at or by calling 1-800-WVU GAME. Tickets also remain for West Virginia’s home games with Texas (Nov. 14) and Iowa State (Nov. 28).

… Following its conference title-clinching victory over the weekend, the West Virginia University women’s soccer team remains steady at No. 2 in today’s Top 25 Poll.

The Mountaineers (15-1-1, 6-0-1) maintain their position in the poll for the third straight week thanks to a 2-1 overtime victory at Oklahoma State on Oct. 23. The victory clinched at least a share of the Big 12 Conference regular-season title for WVU, giving the Mountaineers four straight Big 12 regular-season crowns and six Big 12 titles in four seasons. Dating back to its days in the Big East Conference, WVU has won nine regular-season titles since 2002 and five in as many years.

… The WVU basketball team has its first exhibition on Friday, Nov. 6, with Glenville State. Then a week later they take on Northern Kentucky.

Bob Huggins squad will then play James Madison University on Monday, Nov. 16 at the Charleston Civic Center. Tickets are still available. The tipoff is slated for 7:00 p.m.

… Marshall and Boise State have agreed to a two-game series.

The schools announced Tuesday that they will meet beginning in 2019, when Marshall will visit Boise, Idaho. The Broncos will travel to Huntington to play the Thundering Herd in 2020.
