WVU at Kansas State Set for 3:30 on ESPN

Cody Nespor



The Big 12 announced on Sunday that West Virginia’s next game at Kansas State will kick-off at 3:30 p.m. and be broadcast on ESPN.

This will be the Mountaineers’ third 3:30 p.m. kick-off this season. The first game was at Kansas on Sept. 21 and the second home versus Texas on Oct. 5.

The Wildcats lead the all-time series with WVU 5-4, but West Virginia has won the last three meetings. Since joining the Big 12, WVU is 3-4 against K-State, with the Wildcats winning each of the first four conference games.

The previous meeting between the two ended with a WVU 35-6 win. Then-quarterback Will Grier threw for 356 yards and five touchdowns in the victory. When WVU last traveled to Manhattan, Kansas, the Mountaineers won a close 28-23 game. The two teams scored a combined 48 points in the first half and only three in the second half.

The 6-3 Wildcats were ranked 16 in the nation prior to this weekend’s loss to the Texas Longhorns. Kansas State shocked the nation two weeks ago, upsetting the then-No. 5 ranked Oklahoma Sooners 48-41.

Kansas State is led by junior quarterback Skylar Thompson. Thompson has passed for 1,589 yards and nine touchdowns with a 60.8 completion percentage. Thompson has only thrown one interception so far and has run for 331 yards and 10 more touchdowns.
