MANHATTAN, Kan. — West Virginia used a fourth-quarter rally to upset Kansas State 24-20 in Big 12 Conference football Saturday at Bill Snyder Stadium.
The Mountaineers trailed 20-14 heading into the fourth quarter, before Bryce Wheaton hauled in a 50-yard touchdown catch from West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege, giving the Mountaineers the lead with 11 minutes to go in the game.
The game-clincher came from Hakeem Bailey, who intercepted Wildcats’ Skylar Thompson in the last seconds as West Virginia (4-6, 2-5) snapped its five-game losing streak.
Thompson passed for 299 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for Kansas State (6-4, 3-4). Dalton Schoen caught two passes for 84 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown grab to open the game.
