Kansas vs. West Virginia 2012: Senior Day 'didn't disappoint'

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Mountaineers crushed Kansas in one of the most lopsided games of the year.

The West Virginia Mountaineers absolutely dominated the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday afternoon at Mountaineer Field, winning 59-10 to close out the regular season.

West Virginia had a very uneven year, starting the campaign as an unstoppable force and ending it as an afterthought for most of the college football world. However, Geno Smith and company made sure to end things at home on a good note with a pasting of an overwhelmed Kansas team.

Smith never let a pass hit the turf, going 23-of-24 for 407 yards and three touchdowns, with his only incompletion resulting in an interception. It was a masterful day for the quarterback in his last performance in front of the fans.

As pointed out by The Smoking Musket, even the defense showed up against Kansas:

West Virginia University sends its seniors off in grand style today with a 59-10 beat down of the Kansas Jayhawks. Today is supposed to be about the guys who are playing their last game in Morgantown. And WVU Senior Day did not disappoint. The seniors on defense actually had their best showing of the year, giving up only 10 points. If that doesn't sum up the day at Mountaineer Field, nothing does.

All together, West Virginia churned out 647 total yards and scored 35 points by halftime. The ground game was also working well, garnering 240 yards and a 5.2 yards per carry average.
