JAKE ABBOTT 2019 Tommy Nickolich Memorial Award winner as the program’s top walk-on “I know every little boy, in West Virginia, has the same dream, to put on the Old Gold and Blue and have a Flying WV on your chest. It means something different than just that you can play football. I love the game, but I definitely love this state more than I love the game of football. That is what pushes me.”

NICK MEADOWS 2016-17 Long Snapper “Being a walk-on is a tremendous opportunity. You have to stick to the process and have that belief, that hope that you can do it. Keep working every day, regardless of whether you have a scholarship or not.”


OSMAN KAMARA 2020 Tommy Nickolich Memorial Award winner as the program’s top walk-on “Playing Power 5 football always has been a dream of mine. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be a WVU Mountaineer, first as a walk-on and now on scholarship. I attacked every day with the goal in mind of one day earning a scholarship – continuing to work hard, keep improving and have the mentality that no one can tell the difference between me and a scholarship player on or off the field.”

NAJEE GOODE Member of 2018 Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles “When I first walked on, I was just trying to get to the next level. For me, that next level was getting a scholarship and playing hard. After I got there, the next level was to become a consistent starter and a good leader. Once I did that, it was keep improving and maybe have the possibility of playing in the NFL. It was a long shot. I was hoping and praying for it, and I just kept working hard. Now that it’s here, I still can’t believe it.”

The culture of the football program has changed, the leadership is dynamic and the player development and buy-in rate is at a high level. Brown has implemented a “5th-Quarter Program” for the team to assist in the development of the total player. The pillars of the program are character development, leadership development, real life, social responsibility and career development. Another component of the 5th Quarter program is the Bridge Program. Its goal is to introduce the studentathletes to the college experience when they first enter WVU and then give them their final training and prepare them before they embark into life after graduation. Brown has supported and championed program leadership by the players and above all a dedication to the individual student-athlete. His mission has been to develop each player as a complete person, not only on the field, but off, and for each to continuously build themselves and their brand to make a difference in the world after their football career is finished.

WE WANT TO POSITION OUR PLAYERS FOR

SUCCESS

ON THE PLAYING FIELD AND FOR LIFE BEYOND GRADUATION.

Even though the Mountaineers finished 5-7 in what was called a transitional year, Brown has laid a solid foundation, as WVU showed improvement throughout the season and proved it’s ready to continue its upward climb in 2020. Now during the 2020 offseason, his message to the team has been to continue to “Trust the Climb” by coming to work ready to compete every day; continue to get better and together the program will be the most improved team in the country this year. In 2019, the Mountaineers finished the regular season winning two of the final three games, at Kansas State and at TCU, and had a 3-3 mark on the road, including 3-2 road record in the Big 12 Conference.

Position

Five of Brown’s players were named to All-Big 12 postseason teams, and Colton McKivitz was named the Big 12’s Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year. McKivitz earned spots on two All-American teams - Walter Camp Football Foundation’s Second Team and the Associated Press’ Third Team, and Tykee Smith was named a freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America. McKivitz played in the Reese’s Senior Bowl, participated in the NFL Player Combine and was selected in the fifth-round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. Keith Washington II played in the East-West Shrine Game, and Rex Sunhara participated in the NFLPA Collegiate All-Star Game. Twenty-two players were named to the Academic All-Big 12 teams and all but one of the 2019 senior class have earned their degrees. He will be finished by the end of the fall semester. Brown, one of six FBS coaches to win 10 or more games in 2016, 2017 and 2018, was named WVU’s 35th head football coach on Jan. 5, 2019. He spent the previous four years as the head coach at Troy University (2015-18), compiling a 35-16 record, including 3-0 in bowl games. In his final three seasons, the Trojans posted a 31-8 record (.795), tying for the highest winning percentage nationally among non-Power 5 schools. Before Brown left after the 2018 season, Troy had won 17 of its last 20 games and 22 of its last 26 games. After directing the Trojans to the 2017 Sun Belt Conference Championship, Brown was honored as the league’s coach of the year. During his highly successful tenure at Troy, Brown’s signature wins included a 24-21 victory in 2017 at then-No. 22 ranked LSU in Baton Rouge, which snapped the Tigers’ 49-game non-conference home winning streak and a 24-19 win at Nebraska on Sept. 15, 2018. Also impressive was his team’s narrow 30-24 loss at eventual 2016 national champion Clemson. In 2018, Troy finished 10-3, including a victory over Buffalo in the Dollar General Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. The Trojans finished 7-1 in conference play and won five of their last six games. The 2017 campaign featured an 11-win season for Troy, including a win over North Texas in the New Orleans Bowl. The Trojans once again finished with a 7-1 conference mark, earning Brown his first conference championship. Troy finished the season with the 27th most votes in the final Amway Coaches Poll, marking the highest final ranking by a Sun Belt Conference squad in league history. Troy faced seven bowl teams and posted a 6-1 mark in those games. Additionally, the Trojans played three conference or conference division champions – Boise State (Mountain West), Akron (MAC/East) and North Texas (C-USA West). Troy finished 10-3 in 2016, including a 6-2 mark in the Sun Belt and a victory over Ohio University in the Dollar General Bowl. The Trojans became the first Sun Belt Conference school to ever open a season with eight wins in its first nine games, and they became the first league school to appear in a major top 25 poll, checking in at No. 25 in the Associated Press’ Nov. 13 poll. Additionally, Brown’s 2016 squad tied for the best turnaround in the country (6 wins). Prior to Brown’s first season at Troy in 2015, he spent two years (201314) as the offensive coordinator under Mark Stoops at Kentucky. Under his direction, he led the Wildcats to some new heights on the offensive side of the football. The Wildcats posted more than 440 yards of total offense in three Southeastern Conference games in 2014, its highest total since 2001. The Wildcats totaled 380 yards or more of total offense in their first three SEC games in 2014 – Florida, Arkansas and South Carolina – marking the first time a UK team had done so since 1998. Kentucky scored 21 offensive touchdowns in SEC play in 2014. The two years prior to Brown being named offensive coordinator, Kentucky had a combined 21 offensive touchdowns in SEC play.

At Delaware, Brown served as wide receivers coach, starting three freshman wideouts as the Blue Hens went 6-5. In 2004, Brown coached the quarterbacks and wide receivers at Sacred Heart, boasting the topranked scoring offense in the conference. In 2003, he was the tight ends coach and offensive line assistant at Massachusetts, helping the Minutemen win a share of the Atlantic-10 championship and a berth in the FCS playoffs.

The Red Raiders rushed for 135.7 yards per game and scored 52 rushing touchdowns during his three seasons. TTU’s primary running backs averaged 5.0 yards per rushing attempt. Scott inherited a running attack that ranked No. 115 in rushing offense in 2009 at 84 yards per game, improving that mark in his first season to No. 75 nationally with 141.3 yards per contest. The team’s leading rusher, Baron Batch, was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers and spent three years with that team. The improvements continued in Scott’s second season as Texas Tech was on pace to have its best year rushing since the late 1990s before Tech’s top two rushers sustained seasonending injuries. The Red Raider running backs still rushed for 1,516 yards on the season.

In 2012, TTU averaged 139.9 yards per game on the ground with three backs rushing for more than 400 yards each. Scott earned his first full-time coaching job at Troy as an assistant coach for running backs from 200709, helping lead the Trojans to three consecutive Sun Belt Conference Championships and a pair of appearances in the New Orleans Bowl. Scott was a part of an offensive turnaround at Troy, inheriting an offense that ranked No. 66 in rushing offense and No. 77 in total offense prior to his arrival. In just one season, Troy moved to No. 35 nationally in rushing offense with 182.6 yards per game and No. 16 in total offense with 452.8 yards per contest. In his final season at Troy, the Trojans ranked No. 3 in the nation in total offense. In each of Scott’s first two seasons, he coached an All-Sun Belt Conference player in Kenny Cattouse and DuJuan Harris. Harris, who has played in the NFL for seven years, ranked No. 2 in the conference in rushing in 2008 with 1,077 yards In Scott’s last season at Troy, he coached Shawn Southward, who rushed for 602 yards and 12 touchdowns, earning Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year honors. A native of Plant City, Florida, Scott began his collegiate playing career at Kentucky before transferring to North Carolina, where he lettered in 2003 and 2005.

The Neal Brown era at West Virginia got started in winning fashion with a 20-13 victory over James Madison in front of a home sellout crowd of 61,891. Mountaineer fans needed their flipcard to keep track of all the new faces in the Mountaineer lineup as nine players made their first start in a WVU uniform and 15 players saw their first action. West Virginia had a chance to score first but could not convert on two fumble recoveries and a missed 49-yard Evan Staley field goal attempt. The missed opportunities allowed the Dukes to take a 7-0 lead at the 1:47 mark of the first quarter, when Soloman Vanhorse scored on a 9-yard run. The Mountaineers cut into the James Madison lead at the 12:33 mark of the second quarter on a 38-yard Staley field goal, capping an 11-play, 53-yard drive. After West Virginia ended a James Madison scoring threat with a Darius Stills blocked field goal, the score remained 7-3 at the half. First half statistics showed James Madison with 206 total yards to West Virginia’s 107, but the Mountaineer defense kept the game in check heading into the second half. The Mountaineers were a different team with the start of third quarter play and took a 10-7 lead on a 28-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Austin Kendall to receiver George Campbell. The scoring drive was sparked by a 41-yard completion by Kendall to receiver Tevin Bush on the first play from scrimmage. The scoring drive covered 82 yards in seven plays. The Dukes tied the game at 10-10 on a 34-yard field goal by Ethan Ratke, setting the stage for the fourth quarter.

However, you could see Kendall and the Mountaineer offense getting more comfortable and in rhythm as the game continued. A second Staley field goal from 43 yards gave West Virginia a slim 13-10 advantage with 10:20 left in the game. As the Mountaineer defense kept the Dukes in-check for most of the game, the unit came up with several big plays and none bigger than Keith Washington II’s interception of JMU quarterback Ben DiNucci with 10:08 left to play. West Virginia turned the turnover into six points three plays later, when Kendall found Bush in the end zone for a 22-yard scoring reception. Leading 20-10 with 8:37 remaining, West Virginia carried the momentum, but the Dukes would not go away and answered with a 31yard field goal by Ratke with 4:33 left in the contest. Two WVU offensive drives could not put the game away, but the Mountaineer defense held James Madison on its final two possessions for the historic first victory of the Brown era. Kendall’s final numbers in his WVU debut stood at 260 yards passing and two scores. Linebacker Josh Chandler collected 14 tackles as the WVU defense accounted for six tackles for loss, four sacks, and five pass breakups. The Dukes got 156 passing yards from DiNucci, 55 rushing from Vanhorse and 66 yards receiving from Brandon Polk. Dimitri Holloway totaled 13 tackles. Final numbers showed WVU with 34 yards rushing and 260 passing for 294 yards of offense. JMU accounted for 172 yards on the ground and 156 passing for 328 yards of offense.

Missouri scored 14 points off two first half interceptions and never looked back as the Tigers defeated West Virginia, 38-7, in front of 51,215 at Memorial Stadium. While the Missouri defense ignited its offense, West Virginia never got its offense in gear and struggled for most of the game. A late fourth-quarter touchdown pass kept the Mountaineers from being shut out for the first time since 2013. The Tigers struggled at Milan Puskar Stadium back in 2016 in losing to West Virginia and returned the favor this time around. After both teams traded opening possessions, Missouri started the scoring with 8:34 left in the first quarter on a 43-yard field goal by Tucker McCann. West Virginia spent the first half deep in its own territory as the offense could not muster many positive yards. Missouri’s first of three interceptions came with 5:27 left in the opening quarter, when Nick Bolton picked off an Austin Kendall pass and returned it 18 yards. The interception set up Mizzou’s first touchdown, when Clemson transfer quarterback Kelly Bryant connected with Albert Okwuegbunam three plays later for a 26-yard scoring toss. The Tigers took the 10-0 lead into the second quarter where they broke open the game with 21 unanswered points to take a commanding 31-0 lead at the half. A Ronnell Perkins interception set up the next score at the 13:02 mark of the second quarter. A 10-yard touchdown run by Larry Rountree capped an 11-play drive and upped Mizzou’s lead to 17-0.

After a missed West Virginia field goal, Missouri went on a 12-play, 72-yard drive that took 4:44 off the clock and resulted in a second Bryant touchdown pass to Okwuegbunam. The 16-yard completion gave the Tigers a 24-0 advantage with 5:36 remaining in the half. Missouri closed the scoring in the opening half with an 11-play drive that saw Bryant toss his third touchdown pass, as Barrett Banister hauled in the 3-yard toss with 15 seconds left for a 31-0 Tiger lead. The Tigers possessed the football nearly four minutes longer than the Mountaineers in the first half, ran 17 more offensive plays and outgained them, 274-78. West Virginia regrouped at halftime and played the Tigers even in the final two quarters, but it was too little, too late. Neither team scored in the third quarter, and Bolton’s second pick in the game was returned 20 yards for a score, giving the Tigers 21 points off interceptions. Trailing 38-0, WVU got on the board with 5:13 left, when Kendall connected with receiver George Campbell for a 46-yard touchdown to deny the shutout. Kendall finished with 137 passing yards for WVU, and Josh Chandler led the defense with seven stops. Along with his three TD passes, Bryant passed for 150, while Rountree gained 99-yards rushing. The Tiger defense got seven tackles from Cale Garrett and Bolton. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 30 yards rushing and 141 passing to total 171 yards of offense. Missouri totaled 232 yards on the ground and 150 through the air for 382 yards of offense. The win gives Mizzou a 4-3 advantage in the series, including a 2-1 mark in Columbia.

West Virginia turned in its best performance to date in the 2019 season with an allaround strong showing in defeating NC State 44-27 in front of 57,052 fans at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Mountaineer offense, defense and special teams performed well in defeating the previously unbeaten Wolfpack. The offense scored six touchdowns, the special teams blocked a punt and the defense held the Wolfpack to just six second-half points to secure the victory for the Mountaineers. West Virginia got its offense in gear on its first possession, when quarterback Austin Kendall connected with receiver Sam James for a 20-yard scoring toss. A 24-yard rush by receiver Sean Ryan was the big play in the drive that ended at 66 yards in five plays. NC State answered the score with a 10play, 75-yard drive that consumed 4:17 off the clock. Quarterback Matthew McKay connected with Thayer Thomas for an 8-yard touchdown to even the game at 7-7. West Virginia found its big-play ability in game three, which was something lacking in the team’s first two games of the season. The Mountaineers went back on top, 14-7, on a 23-yard run by tailback Kennedy McKoy with 3:49 left in the quarter. The 75-yard drive took just four plays thanks to a 51-yard completion from Kendall to James to set up the score. West Virginia took the seven-point advantage into the second quarter, but the Wolfpack tied the game at 14-14 with 12:06 left in the half. NC State again consumed a lot of clock with the 5:19 drive that went 80 yards in 12 plays and ended with Jordan Houston’s 1-yard scamper.

Later in the quarter, NC State took its only lead in the game, when a 39-yard completion from McKay to Cary Angeline set up a trick play. After catching a backward pass from McKay, Thomas, from his receiver position, hit Angeline for an 18-yard touchdown pass. The Mountaineers tied the game before halftime with a 75-yard, nine-play drive that ended with Kendall’s 13-yard scoring strike to receiver George Campbell. On the first possession of the third quarter, West Virginia regained the lead for good, driving 89 yards on 11 plays and settling for a 23-yard field goal from Evan Staley for a 24-21 advantage. Kendall turned in big completions to James for 25 yards, and Ryan for 22 yards to keep the drive alive. Two NC State drives later, WVU’s Logan Thimons blocked a Wolfpack punt, setting up the offense at the 12-yard line. Two McKoy rushes later upped West Virginia’s advantage to 31-21 as the senior scored from 5 yards out. Before the end of the third, the Wolfpack chipped into the deficit with a 41-yard, Christopher Dunn field goal, followed by his 37-yarder. The second Dunn field goal was set up by Drake Thomas’ 11-yard interception return off an errant Kendall pass, setting up the Wolfpack offense at the WVU 21-yard line. West Virginia’s defense kept the visitors out of the end zone, holding the scoring possessions to field goals, which was key to building momentum on the side of the home team. Leading 31-27 heading into the fourth, West Virginia put the game away with two touchdowns. The first came at the 12:24 mark, when a 25-yard run by Kendall set up his 9-yard touchdown pass to receiver Ali Jennings. While the Mountaineer defense continued to keep NC State off the board, the offense closed the scoring with 3:04 left on tailback Leddie Brown’s 3-yard rush. Brown accounted for all 23 yards in the drive on four rushes. Kendall had his best day as a Mountaineer with 272 yards passing and three touchdowns. James was the favorite target with nine catches for 155 yards, while McKoy totaled 66 yards on the ground. The WVU defense was led by defensive back Hakeem Bailey with nine tackles. For NC State, McKay finished with 207 yards passing, while Emeka Emezie caught 12 passes for 103 yards. Zonovan Knight added 75 yards to the Wolfpack rushing totals, while Ricky Person totaled 52 yards on the ground. Tanner Ingle led the defense with seven stops and one tackle for loss. Final totals showed West Virginia with 173 yards rushing and 272 passing to total 445 yards of total offense. NC State finished with 144 yards on the ground and 225 through the air for 369 total yards. With the win, the Mountaineers broke a three-game losing streak to NC State and now lead the series by a 6-5 count. West Virginia finished the 2019 regular season nonconference slate with a 2-1 mark.

The breathing room got tighter again as Kansas answered the Mountaineer touchdown with a 71-yard drive and a 23-yard field goal by kicker Liam Jones. Just like a classic boxing match, the two teams continued to trade big plays and scores. The Jayhawks tried an unsuccessful onside kick following the Jones field goal, and West Virginia answered with a field goal of its own. Staley’s second successful kick was good from 44 yards out, giving the Mountaineers a 20-10 advantage with 4:20 left in the third. Kansas wasn’t to be outdone and fought back with the big play. It took just 12 seconds and one play for Stanley to connect with Andrew Parchment for a 75-yard bomb to ignite the Kansas faithful and pull the Jayhawks to 20-17. With the momentum clearly on the Jayhawks’ side, the Mountaineers kept their composure on the road and added a third Staley field goal, this one from 22 yards out for a 23-17 lead with 12:35 left to play. The visitors had the ball for 6:28 in the drive. The key play in the game came on Kansas’ next possession as West Virginia’s Keith Washington II intercepted Stanley, giving the Mountaineers the ball at the KU-49. Pettaway’s second touchdown run came 11 plays later, giving the Mountaineers a 29-17 lead with 4:59 left. However, Kansas was far from done. The Jayhawks answered quickly with a 70-yard drive and a 3-yard touchdown catch by Parchment with 2:10 remaining. After a second failed onside kick by Kansas, WVU’s offense gained a first down before punting back to KU with 32 seconds left. The Mountaineer defense then held on for the win. Kendall finished his day completing 25-of37 passes for 202 yards. The running back trio of McKoy, Pettaway and Leddie Brown combined for 183 yards and three scores. With his 44 yards receiving, McKoy had a busy day and accounted for 117 all-purpose yards. Cornerback Josh Norwood paced the defense with 11 tackles. Kansas got 275 yards passing and three touchdowns from Stanley, while running back Pooka Williams rushed for 76 yards. Parchment was the big-play guy for the Jayhawks with his 132 yards receiving and two scores. Mike Lee, Dru Prox and Kyron Johnson accounted for nine tackles each to top the KU defensive effort. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 192 yards rushing and 202 passing for 394 yards of offense. Kansas turned in a solid day with 142 yards on the ground and 275 through the air for 417 total yards. One final key stat in the game was time of possession. West Virginia controlled the ball for 37:41 compared to 22:19 for Kansas.

No. 11/12 Texas used four interceptions to its advantage in capturing a 42-31 decision over West Virginia in front of 62,069 fans on Homecoming at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Longhorns scored 21 points off the four interceptions with another seven points coming after a missed Mountaineer field goal. Despite a recipe that usually does not win a game against a top 25-ranked team, coach Neal Brown’s young squad accounted nicely for itself, earning praise for the way it competed against the veteran Longhorns. West Virginia took the game’s opening drive 76 yards and opened the scoring, when quarterback Austin Kendall found receiver Sam James for a 44-yard touchdown. Despite missing a field goal, the Longhorns got the ball back after securing their first interception. Veteran Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger wasted no time taking advantage of the miscue and hit receiver Malcolm Epps two plays later with a 22-yard touchdown pass. The Mountaineers broke the tie at the 12:50 mark of the second quarter as Kendall called his own number and scored on a 1-yard rush. The key play in the drive was a 44-yard completion to receiver T.J. Simmons that went to the Longhorn 5-yard line. The Longhorns wasted little time in tying the game, marching 69 yards in 11 plays to knot the score at 14-14. Ehlinger found a wide-open John Burt for a 13-yard touchdown at the 7:59 mark. An Evan Staley missed field goal set up the Longhorns for their next score. Texas used plays of 17 and 25 yards before Ehlinger rushed in from 13 yards out, giving a 21-14 advantage to the visitors at the half.

Texas had the first possession of the third quarter, and the Mountaineer defense came up with a big stop to give the offense a chance to tie. It would become the first of four straight stops by the WVU defense, but the Mountaineers could not take advantage except for a 29-yard field goal at the 1:59 mark, which cut the deficit to 21-17 heading to the fourth quarter. The field goal was set up by Keith Washington II’s 34-yard interception return. The third quarter produced only three points, but the fourth produced 35 combined points with the Mountaineers trying desperately to play catch up. Texas used a B.J. Foster interception to start a drive at the WVU 18-yard line. Three plays later it was Devin Duvernay with a 13-yard touchdown run, giving UT a 28-17 lead. Texas upped the advantage to 35-17 after a D’Shawn Jamison interception gave the Longhorns the ball at the WVU 33. Texas used a trick play on a backward Ehlinger pass to offensive linemen Sam Cosmi for a 12-yard rush and a 35-17 Texas lead with 10:31 left to play. The Mountaineers connected on a 39-yard pass to receiver Sean Ryan to set up a 19-yard scoring toss to Simmons, closing the gap to 35-24 with 3:56 left. Texas recovered the onside kick and used it to full advantage, when Ehlinger turned in his second rushing touchdown in the game. The 23-yard run lifted the Longhorns back to a 42-24 margin. With 2:58 remaining, West Virginia embarked on an 11-play, 81-yard drive highlighted by a 31-yard completion to receiver Bryce Wheaton and a 12-yard touchdown catch by Wheaton with 47 seconds left to play, putting the final score at 42-31 in favor of Texas. Kendall passed for 367 yards and three touchdowns. Factoring in his rushing score, he accounted for four touchdowns in the game. Simmons turned in a career-high 135 yards receiving as did Ryan with his 70 yards on five catches. Safety Josh Norwood paced the defense with 10 tackles, while Hakeem Bailey and Josh Chandler had eight stops each. Darius Stills also added three tackles for loss and one sack. Texas got 121 yards rushing from Roschon Johnson, while Ehlinger finished with 211 yards passing and two touchdowns to go along with his two rushing scores. Duvernay had 86 yards receiving, and Joseph Ossai led the Longhorns with eight tackles. Final numbers showed a fairly even game with both quarterbacks accounting for four touchdowns. West Virginia had 96 yards rushing and 367 passing for 463 yards of offense. Texas turned in 216 yards on the ground and 211 through the air for 427 yards of offense. UT had 26 first downs to WVU’s 24 and the Longhorns had a stronghold on possession time 36:04-23:56. The game was the ninth in the all-time series between the two schools.

team put forth a competitive battle, but in the end, ran out of gas in dropping a 3814 decision to Iowa State at Milan Puskar Stadium. Youth and inexperience were the key words coming out of the game, and injuries played a role, too. For the second straight week, West Virginia took an opponent deep into the second half before coming up short. The game began shaky for WVU as starting quarterback Austin Kendall was injured on the team’s first possession and was replaced by backup Jack Allison. The Mountaineer defense came up big for the game’s first score and tried to take some of the pressure off the offense, when freshman Tykee Smith intercepted quarterback Brock Purdy and returned it 19 yards for a touchdown. The lead held until the 14:55 mark of the second quarter as running back Breece Hall plunged in from the 1-yard line to knot the score at 7-7. Later in the quarter, it was Purdy taking matters into his own hands with a 2-yard run, giving the Cyclones a 14-7 advantage. Allison played his best football in the final minutes of the second quarter, engineering a 14-play, 76-yard drive to tie the game at 14-14 going into the half. Key plays in the drive were 27- and 15-yard completions to receiver T.J. Simmons, before a 9-yard touchdown catch by Simmons ended the drive. With the third quarter’s opening possession, the Mountaineers had a chance to gain some breathing room, but the offense stalled. Purdy led the Cyclones on a 68-yard drive that gave them a 21-14 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

The Mountaineer offense still could not get on track, and Iowa State put the game away with three scores in the final quarter. A Brayden Narveson 45-yard field goal came before a 16-yard touchdown catch by Joe Scates and a 1-yard run by Hall to break the game open late in the fourth. Hall’s touchdown ended a 62-yard drive, and his second rushing score in the game was set up by a Braxton Lewis 23-yard interception return of Allison to the WVU 26. The Cyclones tallied 17 points in the final quarter, running 25 plays and controlling the ball for more than nine minutes. Allison completed 18-of-24 passes for 140 yards, and Simmons caught five passes for 75 yards and one score. Josh Norwood led the defense with 10 tackles and one tackle for loss. Iowa State got 229 yards passing from Purdy and 132 yards rushing from Hall. La’Michael Pettway was the favorite target as he caught eight passes for 81 yards. The ISU defense was led by Mike Rose with nine stops and one sack. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 41 yards rushing and 149 passing to total 190 yards of offense. Iowa State totaled 143 yards rushing and 229 passing for 372 total yards. Iowa State ran 20 more plays than West Virginia (73-53), and the Cyclones controlled the ball nearly 13 minutes more than the Mountaineers (36:11 to 23:48). With the win, Iowa State has now captured the last two meetings against West Virginia, but the Mountaineers still hold a 5-3 advantage in the series.

After a competitive first half, West Virginia’s struggles in the second half helped No. 5/5 Oklahoma to a 52-14 victory in front of 82,620 at Memorial Stadium. Leading by 14 at the half, Oklahoma scored 21 unanswered third-quarter points and 24 overall to break open the game. In the first quarter, the Sooners used a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts to Jeremiah Hall and a 6-yard scoring toss from Hurts to Charleston Rambo for a 14-0 lead. West Virginia answered at the 11:57 mark of the second quarter, when receiver T.J. Simmons hauled in an Austin Kendall pass for a 37-yard touchdown, capping a 10-play, 75-yard drive in 5:08. The key play in the drive was a fake punt by Josh Growden that resulted in a 7-yard completion to Dante Bonamico and a first down on the final play of the opening quarter. As West Virginia struggled to get any type of a running game going, Oklahoma put 14 more points on the board to open a 28-7 advantage. Running back Kennedy Brooks scored on a 9-yard run, and Hurts called his own number with a 2-yard run with 6:31 left in the half. A positive note for the Mountaineers was a 51-yard drive just before halftime, as Kendall hit Simmons for a second time. This scoring completion went for 7 yards and cut the lead to 28-14. However, the third quarter was a disaster for the Mountaineers. Oklahoma scored on the opening possession and never looked back. Hurts scored his second touchdown of the game on a 22-yard run to start the second-half scoring, before connecting with receiver Lee Morris for a 46-yard touchdown reception.

challenge to defeat West Virginia 17-14 in front of a Thursday night, ESPN audience at McLane Stadium. West Virginia used a strong defensive effort to stay in the game and had its chances down the stretch, but could not take advantage of the opportunity to pull off the upset. Baylor scored the game’s first points as the first quarter came to an end. Quarterback Charlie Brewer connected with receiver R.J. Sneed for a 13-yard touchdown with just six seconds left. The scoring play capped an eight play, 86-yard drive by the Bears in 4:13. Sneed’s touchdown turned out to be the only points scored in the first half as the West Virginia defense turned in its best performance of the year against the potent Baylor attack. While the defense was keeping the Mountaineers in the game, West Virginia’s offensive struggles continued in the first half. The Mountaineers managed only 64 total yards in the first two quarters behind 16 rushing and 48 yards passing. After forcing a fumble on Baylor’s first possession of the third quarter, West Virginia’s first real threat at a score ended at the Baylor 10-yard line, when a bad snap was recovered by the Bears. The Mountaineers bounced back on the next possession and tied the game, when quarterback Austin Kendall connected with receiver George Campbell for an 83-yard touchdown pass. The play was West Virginia’s longest from scrimmage on the year. It didn’t take the Bears long to regain the advantage, as they marched 75 yards in seven plays on their next possession to take a 14-7 lead with 4:34 left in the quarter. Brewer fired his second touchdown pass in the game, this one to Denzel Mims for 21 yards.

As much as the first half lacked offensive punch, the third quarter saw the two teams combine for 21 points. The Mountaineers answered the Baylor score with some fireworks of their own. Winston Wright Jr. took the ensuing Baylor kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 14-14 with 4:22 left in the third. It was the first kickoff return for a score by the Mountaineers since 2014. Two drives later, Baylor regained the lead for good when kicker John Mayers connected on a 36-yard field goal. The 13-play drive ate up 6:36 off the clock. The Mountaineers had a chance to tie the game, when Campbell recovered a fumbled punt by BU. Kicker Casey Legg’s first field goal attempt (43 yards) was nullified by a delay of game penalty, before his second attempt from 5 yards farther was blocked.

streak to West Virginia with a 38-17 victory at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Red Raiders used a fast start to put the Mountaineers in catch-up mode from the beginning. Texas Tech scored touchdowns on its first five possessions to start the game and never let the Mountaineers back in the contest. For West Virginia, the offensive woes of the 2019 season continued in the form of a non-existent running game, which left the Mountaineers in passing situations for most of the game. Texas Tech took the opening possession 72 yards in 11 plays to start the scoring. Ta’Zhawn Henry’s 2-yard run gave the Red Raiders a lead they would never relinquish. West Virginia drove 63 yards on its opening drive and came away with a 30yard field goal by Casey Legg to cut the deficit to 7-3. However, the Red Raiders scored touchdowns on their next three drives to take command. One play after the Legg field goal, Texas Tech quarterback Jett Duffey threw an 81-yard touchdown pass to receiver Dalton Rigdon for a 14-3 lead. Before the first quarter ended, Henry scored his second rushing touchdown for a 21-3 TTU advantage. The score was set up by a Douglas Coleman interception of WVU quarterback Austin Kendall. Second quarter action saw Texas Tech drive 87 yards for a score on SaRodorick Thompson’s 1-yard run. Thompson would add another touchdown later in the quarter after a Mountaineer trick play dazzled the home faithful.

West Virginia ended a six-play, 65-yard drive with a Kennedy McKoy touchdown reception from receiver Isaiah Esdale, putting the halftime score at 35-10 Tech. Neither team scored in the third quarter, and the Mountaineers actually won the second half by outscoring Texas Tech 7-3. The Red Raiders were in conservative, run-the-clock mode for the last two quarters and added a 24-yard Trey Wolff field goal with 10:20 left to play. West Virginia backup quarterback Jarret Doege saw his first action of the season in the fourth quarter and led the Mountaineers on a seven-play, 61-yard scoring drive that ended with a 9-yard touchdown pass to running back Tony Mathis to close the game’s scoring. Kendall finished with 355 yards passing, while receiver Sam James hauled in 223 yards receiving. Fellow receiver George Campbell added 95 yards in the effort. WVU was led defensively by Sean Mahone with a career-best 13 tackles. Duffey paced the Red Raider offense with 354 yards passing as 106 of those yards went to receiver Rigdon. Henry and Thompson added two touchdowns each in the victory, while Jordyn Brooks collected 11 tackles. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 51 yards rushing and 498 passing to total 549 yards of offense. Texas Tech turned in 127 yards on the ground and 354 through the air for 481 total yards. While WVU won the stats battle, it could not overcome TTU scoring on five straight possessions The two teams came into the game with identical 3-5 records, and by snapping the fivegame losing streak to the Mountaineers, the Red Raiders now trail the all-time series with West Virginia by a 6-3 count, including a 5-3 mark all-time in Big 12 play.

streak on the season with a much needed 24-20 victory at Kansas State. West Virginia got a strong performance from its defense and a spark offensively from backup quarterback Jarret Doege, who was making his first West Virginia start. However, things started shaky for the Mountaineer defense. Kansas State scored on its first play from scrimmage, and it looked like it was going to be a long afternoon for the visitors. Wildcat quarterback Skylar Thompson connected with receiver Dalton Schoen for a 68-yard touchdown strike, giving KSU a 7-0 lead, much to the delight of the home crowd. The key for West Virginia was to somehow answer the quick strike, and the Mountaineers did that with a six-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a Doege 19yard touchdown pass to receiver George Campbell. It was Doege’s 32-yard completion to Campbell earlier in the drive that provided the key play as the Mountaineers tied the game at 7-7. Kansas State regained the lead on its next possession with a 22-yard Blake Lynch field goal. The scoring drive consumed 6:18 of the first quarter. As the quarter ended, Doege went to the air again and found Campbell for a 15yard scoring reception, putting the score at 14-10 in favor of the visitors. Second-quarter action saw Kansas State add a 33-yard Lynch field goal, which was key as the Wildcats got the ball first to start the second half. Kansas State made the most of the third quarter’s first drive, marching 70 yards in 13 plays, grabbing a 20-14 lead on James Gilbert’s 3-yard run. KSU took 7:04 off the clock with the drive.

The Wildcats scored the only points in the second and third quarters, but the Mountaineers got back on the board at the 14:07 mark of the fourth, when kicker Casey Legg connected on a 51-yard field goal. Trailing 20-17 with 11:27 left, WVU receiver Bryce Wheaton got behind the KSU defense and hauled in a 50-yard touchdown pass from Doege, giving the Mountaineers a 24-20 advantage. The WVU defense did the rest by keeping the Wildcats out of the end zone on the next three possessions. Hakeem Bailey’s interception with 28 seconds left sealed the game. Doege impressed in his first start, completing 20-of-30 passes for 234 yards and three touchdowns. Campbell finished with 92 yards receiving and two scores. Running backs Leddie Brown and Kennedy McKoy combined for 103 yards rushing, and Sean Mahone led the defense with nine tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack. For Kansas State, Thompson finished with 299 yards passing and one touchdown. Gilbert paced the KSU running game with 60 yards, while Schoen led the Wildcat receivers with 84 yards. Defensively, KSU was led by Wayne Jones with seven stops and one tackle for loss. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 85 yards rushing and 234 passing for 319 yards of offense. Kansas State totaled 122 yards on the ground and 299 through the air for 421 yards of offense. The win gave the Mountaineers a fourgame winning streak over K-State and evened the series at 4-4 in Big 12 Conference play. KSU won the first four conference meetings, before WVU evened things with the current four-game streak.

fourth-quarter points to come back and survive an upset bid at the hands of West Virginia by a 20-13 count. Trailing by three in the fourth quarter, the Cowboys put together two scoring drives and a big defensive stop to hold off the Mountaineers and eliminate them from bowl eligibility. The Cowboys scored on their first drive of the game going 74 yards in 11 plays. Receiver Jelani Woods caught a 1-yard pass from backup quarterback Dru Brown, who was playing for the injured Spencer Sanders. West Virginia did not answer the score until the 10:33 mark of the second quarter on Evan Staley’s 22-yard field goal. The Mountaineers had two chances to score from the 1-yard line, but failed to punch it in and had to settle for the field goal. Later in the quarter, West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege went to the air for a 34-yard touchdown strike to receiver George Campbell, giving WVU a 10-7 advantage. The catch was Campbell’s team-leading seventh touchdown of the season. The Mountaineers took the 10-7 lead into the locker room at the half, thanks to a strong defensive effort. The unit held the Cowboys to 119 total yards, and their star running back, Chuba Hubbard to just 39 yards rushing. The Cowboys tied the game on the opening possession of the third quarter. Kicker Matt Ammendola converted on a 45-yard field goal after the OSU offense drove 45 yards. West Virginia regained the lead with just 54 ticks remaining in the third, when Staley hit from 29 yards away. The WVU offense put Staley in field goal range, driving 73 yards in 11 plays.

The Mountaineers led at the half, at the end of the third and were doing the things needed to pull off the upset. However, it was not meant to be as Oklahoma State scored 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to grab the road win. In the end, the problems the Mountaineer offense have faced all season surfaced again: failure to run the ball, dropped passes and the inability to score touchdowns in the red zone turned out to be the difference. OSU’s 10 fourth-quarter points came from a 2-yard touchdown pass to Dillon Stoner and a 22-yard field goal from Ammendola. The Mountaineers did put a drive together late in the game in an effort to tie, but the Cowboys held at their own 19-yard line. Doege finished with 307 yards on 28 completions, while Campbell turned in his third straight game of 90-plus receiving yards with five catches for 92 yards. Linebacker Josh Chandler and defensive back Kerry Martin Jr. each turned in nine tackles. For OSU, Hubbard finished with 106 yards rushing and 88 receiving, while Brown passed for 196 yards and two scores. Amen Ogbongbemiga led the Cowboy defense with 11 stops. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 26 yards rushing and 307 passing for 333 yards of offense. Oklahoma State rushed for 89 yards and passed for 196 to total 285 yards. With the win, the Cowboys extended their win streak over West Virginia to five games. The Mountaineers finished the home portion of the 2019 season with a 2-4 record at Milan Puskar Stadium.

with a 20-17 road win at TCU. While Black Friday usually means shopping to some, this holiday weekend game meant a potential bowl bid on the line for TCU or a chance to close the season on a high note for West Virginia. The defensive battle did not disappoint and came down to the final possession, before West Virginia secured its third road win of the season. The game started on the positive side for the Mountaineers, as a Tykee Smith interception on TCU’s first possession set up the game’s opening score. Smith returned the errant Horned Frog pass 39 yards to the TCU 14-yard line. Four plays later, WVU quarterback Jarret Doege connected with running back Leddie Brown for a 3-yard touchdown reception and a 7-0 Mountaineer lead. The Horned Frogs tied the game at the 5:16 mark of the first, when Sewo Olonilua rushed in from 2 ards out. The score was set up by a 64-yard run by Taye Barber on the drive’s first play. TCU took its first lead at the 9:49 mark of the second quarter on a Jonathan Song 30-yard field goal. The Horned Frogs marched 54 yards in 11 plays for the score. West Virginia answered with a field goal of its own on the next possession. The Mountaineers drove 52 yards in 10 plays, tying the game on a 40-yard field goal from Evan Staley. TCU’s next two possessions and one for WVU did not produce any points, and the two teams took the 10-10 score into the locker room at the half. The Horned Frogs jumped back out on top with 12:12 left in the third, when Jalen Reagor returned a Josh Growden punt 70

yards for a 17-10 lead. WVU’s special teams had been solid all year, but Reagor made the Mountaineers pay for the breakdown. Later in the third quarter, West Virginia used a Sean Mahone interception and a 36-yard run by tailback Kennedy McKoy to register a 24-yard Staley field goal. Staley’s second successful kick of the game put the score at 17-13 in favor of TCU heading to the fourth. The two defenses held until the Mountaineers broke through with 2:10 left to play. A seven-play, 61-yard drive ended with a 35-yard touchdown strike from Doege to receiver Isaiah Esdale, putting WVU in front 20-17. Not only did the Mountaineer defense have to hold TCU once, but twice in the final two minutes to secure the victory. One drive held the Horned Frogs to 13 yards. After using all three timeouts, TCU got the ball back with 46 seconds left only to be denied once again. WVU’s top performers were McKoy with 51 yards rushing and Doege with two touchdown passes. Shea Campbell led the defense with eight tackles, two TFLs and one sack. TCU got 144 yards passing from QB Max Duggan and 12 tackles from linebacker Garret Wallow. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 86 yards rushing and 158 passing for 244 yards of offense. TCU finished with 153 yards on the ground and 144 through the air for 297 total yards. With the outcome, both teams finished with 5-7 records on the year. WVU finished 3-3 on the road in 2019 and 3-2 in Big 12 road games.

SHANE LYONS In his sixth year as the director of athletics at West Virginia University, Shane Lyons’ vison for the athletics program is crystal clear. It’s a vision that focuses on the betterment of more than 500 student-athletes and the dayto-day needs that will help them succeed in the classroom and in competition, and it is working. His open lines of communications have made him a popular role model for WVU athletes and coaches. His honest, fair and caring approach has led to success on and off the field. Whether it’s regularly scheduled meetings with the student-athletes or his open-door office policy, Lyons has his finger on the pulse of his student-athletes, coaches and staff. His success has brought national exposure to West Virginia as Lyons’ presence is wanted on many national and prestigious committees. He chairs the all-important Football Oversight Committee and is also a member of the NCAA Council. Additionally, Lyons serves on the NCAA Working Group on Transfers, the Football Competition Committee and the NCAA Wrestling Academics Enhancement Working Group. His work with WVU President E. Gordon Gee’s senior leadership team and the Big 12 Conference has brought additional respect and positive exposure to his department and the University. He served on the Big 12 Administration Committee, Finance and Budget Committee and the Game Management and Officiating Subcommittee, while chairing the Big 12 athletic directors committee in 2018. In the office, he devotes endless energy to his Climbing Higher facilities master plan that will keep West Virginia a strong Power 5 institution and position his department for growth and continued success. His Climbing Higher facilities master plan isn’t about keeping up with the Joneses, it’s about taking what his department has, improving it and making it complete for the student-athlete. It’s an aggressive, $100 million fundraising campaign centered on one of his core values - enhancing the student-athlete experience. The campaign is already making a difference with a complete renovation of football’s Milan Puskar Center and the future emergence of an Olympic Sports Performance Center. And, coming in 2021, Lyons will lead the celebration of the 50th birthday of the WVU Coliseum and oversee the installation of 14,000 new seats, a new videoboard, lighting and sound system for the venerable structure. From training, nutrition, medical and competitiveness, Lyons’ vision is for sustained future success, building winning programs and growing WVU’s strong reputation across the country. He is about results, and he has already left a great deal of accomplishments in his rear-view mirror. In 2019, Lyons commissioned and announced an economic impact study that showed Mountaineer Athletics produced more than $300 million to the state’s economy and more than $78 million to the local economy. And with the local economy in mind, Lyons’s proudly saw the formal opening of a new $45 million aquatic and track facility that will not only benefit WVU, but also local schools and the entire community. The Mountaineers proudly hosted the 2020 Big 12 swimming and diving championships in that beautiful facility. Additionally, in the last two years, Lyons’ department has hosted the NCAA rifle national championships, the Big 12 golf championship and an NCAA baseball regional. In 2019 and again in 2020, WVU recorded its highest APR score ever and finished above the national average both

Following are some guidelines for covering the Mountaineers in 2020. Due to COVID-19, schedules are subject to change and all working space on the sideline and in the press box will be extremely limited and will be issued completely on a priority basis in accordance with all health and safety regulations. CREDENTIALS: All requests for working press, photo and broadcast credentials to cover West Virginia’s 2020 home football games must be applied for online at http://www.sportssystems. com/westvirginia at least two weeks prior to the game. Requests submitted the week of the game only will be honored if space permits. Due to the demand for working credentials, media regularly assigned to cover WVU and the visiting school will receive priority. All photographers must work outside the coaching box as prescribed by the NCAA; they are not permitted in the bench area extended. Photographers must sign in for field access in the press box prior to each game. No children (under the age of 16) are allowed on the sidelines for any reason; any children on the sidelines will be removed, along with their guardians. Any abuse of a working credential to West Virginia football games can result in the media agency losing credential privileges for the remainder of 2020 and possibly the entire 2021 home season. AFTER THE GAME: Coach Neal Brown will conduct a postgame news conference accessible to the media via video conferencing. The link will be issued to accredited media the week of the game. Brown’s news conference also can be heard over the press box PA. Select WVU players also will be available via video. No media will be granted access to the Milan Puskar Center due to health and safety regulations. DURING THE WEEK: Coach Neal Brown will meet with the media each Tuesday afternoon at noon, via video conferencing. The link to the conference will be distributed each week. Brown will be available on the Big 12 weekly conference call each Monday at 11:40 a.m. ET Select Mountaineer players will be available for interviews via video conference each Tuesday from 12:30 – 2 p.m. Any special arrangements for player interviews should be made through director of football communications Mike Montoro at least a day in advance. Players will not be asked to miss class or study hall for interviews and at no time will a player’s phone number be given to the media. No player interviews will be conducted during practice sessions. The practice and interview schedule for preseason camp and game weeks will be announced in August.
