MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Sixteenth-ranked Kansas State will go after its fifth straight win Saturday at West Virginia.
The first-place Wildcats are led on offense by a pair of freshmen: quarterback Will Howard and running back Deuce Vaughn.
Kansas State is looking for a 5-0 start in the Big 12 for the first time since 2014.
Fourth-place West Virginia already has two league losses and this will be its best remaining chance to get back into contention.
The Mountaineers are coming off a 34-27 loss at Texas Tech, while Kansas State beat rival Kansas 55-14.
