The West Virginia Mountaineers (5-7) season came to an end by upsetting the TCU Horned Frogs (5-7) 20-17 and spoiling their chances of becoming bowl eligible.
Kennedy McKoy, playing in his final game with the Mountaineers, led West Virginia in rushing with 51 yards on 9 carries. Leddie Brown led the team in receptions with 6 catches for 41 yards.
West Virginia starting quarterback Jarret Doege struggled throughout the game, particularly on deep throws, but threw a dime to Isaiah Esdale late in the 4th quarter to put the Mountaineers ahead 20-17 and finished 20/34 with 158 yards, 2 touchdown and 3 interceptions.
The young West Virginia defense played well once again, giving up 279 yards and only 17 points. Freshman Tykee Smith had a tremendous game with an interception and several pass breakups.
