Last year: West Virginia took a victory over Kansas in Lawrence, 29-24. The Mountaineers had their best rushing game of the season against Kansas, dashing for 192 yards as Kennedy McKoy and Martell Pettaway teamed up to score all three of West Virginia’s touchdowns. WVU did struggle to stop the Kansas offense, however, especially the Carter Stanley-Andrew Parchment connection, which produced 132 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Uniform combinations: The Mountaineers will wear their classic uniform combination: blue helmet, blue jersey and gold pants.
Game preview: West Virginia’s defense will look to take advantage of a struggling Kansas offense, which has seen high turnover in its offensive line unit while also having to make changes at quarterback. The Mountaineers will face Miles Kendrick after started Jalen Daniels left the Jayhawks’ contest against Oklahoma State with an injury. On the offensive side, West Virginia’s coaches are looking for improvement from their own quarterback, Jarret Doege. The redshirt junior was key to WVU’s victory against Baylor, but costly mistakes from him (and the offense as a whole) gave Baylor plenty of opportunities to keep the game close.
