Late Drive Comes Up Short in 24-20 Loss to West Virginia

MANHATTAN, Kan. – A late drive with under one minute remaining came up short for Kansas State, as the Wildcats fell to West Virginia, 24-20, at Bill Snyder Family Stadium on Saturday evening. Entering the fourth quarter with a three-point lead, Kansas State allowed a touchdown pass on third and long from West Virginia’s Jerret Doege and could not capitalize on the offensive end throughout the duration of the last stanza, which included the second interception of the day on the last drive for the Wildcats by junior quarterback Skylar Thompson.
 
Thompson completed 24-of-39 through the air and produced a career-high 299 passing yards, while senior wideout Dalton Schoen brought in two catches for 84 yards and a touchdown on K-State’s first play from scrimmage. Senior running back James Gilbert led the ground attack for K-State with 60 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries.
 
Mountaineer quarterback Jerret Doege passed for three touchdowns on the evening with senior wideout George Campbell on the receiving end of two of them in the win.
