WVU, Trickett club Kansas, 33-14
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Clint Trickett threw for 302 yards and a touchdown, Mario Alford returned a kickoff 94 yards for a score and West Virginia beat Kansas 33-14 on Saturday.
Rushel Shell ran for a season-high 113 yards and a score while Josh Lambert kicked four field goals for the Mountaineers (3-2, 1-1 Big 12).
The Mountaineers’ Kevin White finished with six catches for 132 yards and matched Stedman Bailey’s school record of five straight games with 100 receiving yards.
West Virginia jumped ahead 26-0 at halftime and cruised from there.
Kansas (2-3, 0-2) managed little offense in the debut for interim head coach Clint Bowen, who took over after Charlie Weis was fired on Sunday. The Jayhawks were held to 176 totals yards and nine first downs.
Kansas lost its 26th straight road game. The busiest player for the Jayhawks was Trevor Pardula, who punted 14 times.
