West Virginia’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of Martell Pettaway, who rushed for 40 yards and two touchdowns on six carries, and Kennedy McKoy, who rushed for 73 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries.
Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Texas beat Oklahoma State 36-30 in its last game.
