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.

Chris Klieman’s squad loses its second straight game and next travels to Lubbock, Texas for a matchup against Texas Tech on Saturday, Nov. 23.
