MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Leddie Brown broke open a close game with a long touchdown run in the third quarter and caught one of Jarret Doege's three touchdown passes to lead West Virginia to a 38-17 win over Kansas on Saturday.
With West Virginia clinging to a 17-10 lead late in the third quarter, Brown ran 87 yards up the middle for the start of three straight touchdowns for the Mountaineers. The 210-pound junior compiled 195 yards on 18 carries.
The Jayhawks were without coach Les Miles. Miles tested positive for the coronavirus a week ago. He was cleared to return to the Jayhawks but chose not to travel out of caution.
