Kansas State vs. West Virginia score: Wildcats putting away Mountaineers, lead 52-14 after 3Q

Thanks to a dominant defensive effort, the Kansas State Wildcats are well on their way to a blowout victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers on Saturday night. Midway through the fourth quarter, the Wildcats are leading 52-14 in Morgantown.

Senior quarterback Collin Klein has been superb so far for Kansas State, completing 19-of-21 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in addition to rushing for 41 yards and four scores. Wide receivers Tyler Lockett (nine catches, 194 yards, two scores) and Chris Harper (six catches, 96 yards, one score) have also put up huge numbers.

Potential Heisman candidate Geno Smith has had by far his worst game of the season this week, completing 21-of-32 passes for just 143 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

Coming into Saturday night, Smith had thrown 25 touchdowns with zero interceptions this season, but he's led the West Virginia offense to just 199 total yards against the Wildcats defense.
