Grier throws for four touchdowns in West Virginia's win over K

West Virginia's Will Grier throws highlight reel TD as time in first half expires (Video)

Will Grier found Gary Jennings for an important fourth-down conversion in the final minutes and then ran out the clock with a series of runs.

Kansas State's first points were set up when Reed picked off Grier at the 28 and returned it to the 3-yard line. They were the only two scoring drives for the Wildcats in the first quarter.

Unlike the past two weeks, when he came on the field in the second half and led the Wildcats to victory, his lack of experience showed.

The reaction probably would have been a lot different if that pass fell incomplete, huh?

Dalvin Warmack rushed for 96 yards yards while Winston Dimel scored twice.

West Virginia's final play of the first half against Kansas State was a flawless example of that.

Dimel 1 run (McCrane kick), 12:44. McCrane now holds the record for K-State history. Overall the Wildcats had 102 yards in punt return yardage. An odd choice made even stranger by the fact that West Virginia defensive lineman Ezekial Rose jumped in front of the ball for an interception.

GQ also writes that Kaepernick agreed to participate in its project because "he wants to reclaim the narrative of his protest". It has helped his story go around the world.

Instead of going into halftime ahead 23-21, the Wildcats trailed 28-20.

The key sequence of the game occurred at the end of the first half. West Virginia outplayed K-State in most areas and outgained the Wildcats 340-192.

The Mountaineers now have a two-game winning streak with two games left to play. Kansas State did have two long touchdown drives, but in quick change scenarios the West Virginia defense stood tall. It wouldn't matter as the ball found a wide open Ka'Raun White for a 30-yard touchdown.

Problem was, the Mountaineers shredded the Wildcats when they weren't turning the ball over. At 14:56, Sills would catch a 16 yard pass, and at 7:22, the second would be for four yards.

The Wildcats squandered several good opportunities early.

Justin Crawford had another strong game after being a bit banged up in the middle part of the season. He finished with 372 passing yards on 27 completions.

West Virginia finally got a first down - on a 75-yard touchdown pass from Grier to White - on the first play of the ensuing drive.
