West Virginia had a solid day on defense, and put it all together on offense as the Mountaineers rolled the 16th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats, 37-10.

The Mountaineers finally put a complete game together on offense, and this is largely because of a solid outing from Quarterback Jarret Doege. The Bowling Green transfer was hitting on downfield passes, and finally looked like he was in control of his passes. He finished the game going 22 of 34 for 301 yards and two touchdown touchdowns to no interceptions – his third consecutive 300-yard game.

Leddie Brown had his fourth 100-yard game of the season, tallying 24 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown. Bryce Ford-Wheaton would lead all receivers with 3 catches for 104 yards.


Defensively, West Virginia used an interception returned 18-yards for a touchdown by Dylan Tonkery in the third quarter to take away any hope of a comeback by the Wildcats. Freshman Quarterback Will Howard struggled all day, throwing three interceptions, and completing just around 50% of his passes. Running room was scarce for the Wildcats as they finished with only 41 yards on 23 carries.

Kansas State finished with 225 total yards as compared to WVU’s 485.


West Virginia travels to Texas next week to take on the Longhorns. Kickoff time is set to be revealed early next week.
