The Wildcats (6-3, 3-3) saw their three-game win streak—that included a 48-41 upset win over Oklahoma—snapped in a 27-24 loss to Texas in Austin on Saturday.
WVU (3-6, 1-5) has dropped five games in a row, including a 38-17 loss against Texas Tech Saturday in Morgantown.
This will be WVU’s third trip to Bill Snyder Family Stadium, where the Mountaineers are 1-2. WVU won the last game at K-State 28-23, in 2017.
K-State holds a 5-4 edge in the all-time series and a 4-3 edge in conference games. After losing the first four matchups, WVU is on a three-game win streak against K-State and won last year’s game 35-6, in Morgantown.
This will be the first time these programs will play a conference game without both Bill Snyder and Dana Holgorsen coaching. Snyder retired and Holgorsen left WVU for Houston after the 2018 season. First-year head coaches Chris Klieman and Neal Brown have not faced each other before as coaches.
This will be WVU’s fourth afternoon game; the Mountaineers are 2-2 in those games.
