Doege leads West Virginia over No. 16 Kansas State

Jarret Doege threw for 301 yards and two touchdowns as West Virginia handed No. 16 Kansas State its first Big 12 loss in a 37-10 upset on Saturday in Morgantown, W.Va.

The Wildcats (4-2, 4-1 Big 12) had their four-game Big 12 winning streak snapped, leaving No. 6 Oklahoma State (4-0, 3-0) as the only unbeaten team in the league heading into the Cowboys’ game against visiting Texas on Saturday afternoon.

The Mountaineers (4-2, 3-2) improved to 4-0 at home as Doege completed 22 of 34 passes with no interceptions. Leddie Brown added 102 yards on 24 carries with a touchdown and Alec Sinkfield finished with 85 yards on 15 rushes. Bryce Ford-Wheaton had three catches for 104 yards.

West Virginia’s defense, which led the Big 12 heading into Saturday allowing just 261.8 yards per game, limited the Wildcats to 225 yards and only 13 first downs. K-State mustered only 41 yards rushing.

The Wildcats entered the game leading the Big 12 in turnover margin at plus-eight with only one interception.

K-State freshman Will Howard, a dual-threat quarterback who replaced the injured Skylar Thompson after the third game of the season, threw three interceptions Saturday.

One of them was returned 18 yards for a touchdown by Dylan Tonkery with 7:51 left in the third quarter to increase West Virginia’s lead to 34-10.

Howard completed 19 of 37 pass attempts for 184 yards with one touchdown.

West Virginia took a 24-10 halftime lead by scoring touchdowns on three consecutive possessions in the second quarter.

In that stretch, Doege completed touchdown passes of 5 yards to Ali Jennings and 15 yards to Winston Wright. Brown also had a 9-yard scoring run.

Kansas State closed the scoring in the first half on Howard’s 35-yard touchdown pass to Malik Knowles with 1:05 left.

West Virginia had three field goals in the game, including two by backup placekicker Casey Legg (25 and 45 yards) in the second half after Evan Staley became injured on kickoff coverage.
