For the first since 2013 and only the second time this century, the West Virginia Mountaineers will lose more games than they win in a single football season.
WVU (3-7, 2-6 Big 12) fell in its 2019 home finale, 20-13, to No. 21 Oklahoma State. The Mountaineers controlled the first half and led, 10-7, at the break. But the WVU offense was stymied in the second half, managing just three points.
WVU had a chance to tie the game late, but the drive stalled inside the OSU red zone and the Cowboys held on for the victory.
West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege, making his second career start for the Mountaineers, finished 28-for-38 for 308 yards and a touchdown and no interceptions.
The WVU rushing game again was anemic, as the Mountaineers managed just 26 yards on 22 carries.
The Mountaineers close their season next week when they travel to Fort Worth, Texas, to meet TCU.
