Player of the Game
West Virginia had a very balanced attack on the ground and through the air against Kansas, making it challenging to choose a player of the game. The nod went to Martell Pettaway, who had six carries for 40 yards and two touchdowns.
His first touchdown came in the third quarter. The 23-yard touchdown run extended the Mountaineer lead to 17-7 with 10:31 to go in the third quarter. It capped a 10 play, 70 yard drive that took 4:24 off the clock.
Pettaway’s second touchdown is what essentially sealed the win for the Mountaineers. The seven yard touchdown put West Virginia up by 12 with five minutes to go.
