Kansas State vs. West Virginia: Live Scores, Analysis and Results
Final Score: Kansas State 55, West Virginia 14
Kansas State went to Morgantown and made a statement by putting a hurting on West Virginia, destroying the Mountaineers 55-14.
QB Collin Klein proved that he truly deserves to be considered the Heisman frontrunner at this point in the season. Klein totaled 364 yards of offense and accounted for all seven of his team’s touchdowns.
It was a truly awful display by the West Virginia defense, which has some major questions to answer going forward.
Geno Smith’s Heisman hopes have officially gone down the drain. However, Klein’s have become even stronger.
The Wildcats not only look like they have the proper pieces to compete for a Big 12 title this season. They look like they could be a legitimate contender for a national title as well.
Here's a look at the 10 lessons we learned from tonight's game.

And that will do it.
Statement win by the Wildcats.
Embarrassing performance by the Mountaineers.
Stay tuned for my postgame wrap-up article about the lessons we learned from tonight's game.
It was Braun. He had his left ankle rolled up on.
At least it's good to see him up and walking off the field.
That looks like it was OG Jeff Braun lying on the field in agony before the commercial break.
West Virginia can't afford to lose him. He's one of the Mountaineers' key cogs in the trenches.
It's Millard Time in Morgantown! Oh yeah.
Score Update: Kansas State 55, West Virginia 14. 3:43 Left in the 4th Quarter.
Anthony Cantele boots through his second field of the night from 42 yards out.
That was just the third Kansas State drive that didn't result in a touchdown.
At this point, I would have just pooched it to save West Virginia's kickoff team from further embarrassment.
The Mountaineers simply can't tackle Tramaine Thompson or Tyler Lockett.
They're averaging 37 yards on kickoff returns tonight.
Score Update: Kansas State 52, West Virginia 14. 7:31 left in the 4th Quarter.
Well, at least the Mountaineers haven't packed it in yet.
Tavon Austin takes in his second touchdown of the night with a 5-yard catch for a touchdown.
It was just eight days ago that West Virginia was the fifth-ranked team in the country.
Oh how times have changed.

Alright already, we get it, it's a roomy car.

West Virginia's offense relies way too much on sideline throws.
It would be nice to see the Mountaineers throw the ball over the middle every once in a while.

End of 3rd Quarter Score Update: Kansas State 52, West Virginia 7
Things went from bad to worse for the Mountaineers in the third quarter, as the game continued to spiral control.

Collin Klein hits a wide-open Tyler Lockett for a 20-yard touchdown.
Might as well just send out Klein's invitation to the Heisman ceremony right now.
At this point, I would just play Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey at the two cornerback spots.
They're better athletes than anyone in the Mountaineers secondary and there's no way that they could tackle any worse than the current defensive backs are.
West Virginia's student section is officially empty midway through the third quarter.
I know the students have received criticism for leaving games early in the past, but I can't say I blame them for heading for the exits.

The Wildcats have made some bone-jarring hits in this game.

Collin Klein, John Hubert, Tyler Lockett, Arthur Brown, Nigel Malone and Ty Zimmerman are the type of athletes that could suit up for any team in the country.
