Kansas State and Texas Tech both demolished West Virginia, but there were a few differences that give K-State an advantage.
The first, and most obvious, is that Texas Tech won at home, whereas Kansas State had to go into Morgantown and take on a West Virginia squad that was eager to avenge their previous week's loss.
In the first three quarters of both games, throwing out the final quarter because backups came in, the scores were 42-7 for Texas Tech and 52-7 Kansas State.
Besides the 10 point scoring advantage for K-State, it's also worth noting that the touchdown West Virginia scored came from a kick return. The Wildcats held the Mountaineers without an offensive touchdown until 7:31 of the fourth quarter.
The last thing that should be taken into account is the injury to Stedman Bailey during the Texas Tech game. I'm not saying West Virginia would have come back to win if Bailey had played the second half, but I think it made a significant difference.
