West Virginia QB Austin Kendall didn’t start his collegiate career as a Mountaineer. The 6-foot-2 signal caller signed with the Oklahoma Sooners as a part of the 2016 recruiting class.
But as Lincoln Riley brought in talented transfer quarterbacks, Kendall knew his playing time might be limited. So he decided to stay in the Big 12 and transfer to West Virginia.
Kendall played against his former team today, albeit in a 52-14 loss. After the game, Oklahoma players and coaches shared a special moment with the former Oklahoma QB.
Check out a video of the special moment below.

What an awesome moment between Kendall and his former school. Even better to see the West Virginia quarterback have a few words with Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley.
Kendall couldn’t pull off the upset in today’s game. Oklahoma had way too much fire-power on offense. The West Virginia QB struggled to get going as well against the Sooners’ defense.
Kendall completed 15-of-31 throws for 182 yards and two touchdowns. With today’s loss, the Mountaineers move to 3-4 on the season with losses to Missouri, Texas, Iowa State and Oklahoma.
Today’s loss also marks the Mountaineers’ third straight loss, two of which coming against ranked opponents.
Kendall will look to get West Virginia back in the winning column against Baylor on Oct. 31.
