For the first time this season, Kansas State football looked terrible in their 37-10 loss to West Virginia and are now 4-2 on the season.
This game seemed to be out of reach for the Kansas State Wildcats as soon as the Mountaineers went up 10-3 in the second quarter. After that West Virginia put up 27 more points while the Kansas State offense only put up seven after the first touchdown from West Virginia.
The only positive I can take from this game is the fact that Will Howard had a huge learning experience against one of the best defenses in the Big 12. Outside of that positive, nothing went right for Kansas State and they were outclassed by a West Virginia team that looked to be out for blood.
Kansas State really needs to learn from this game and improve on its gameplan quickly, as they are now coming into the brunt of the schedule. They face Oklahoma State and Iowa State in the next two weeks and can not have this same kind of performance against those two teams. We will now see how K-State can respond after a bad loss for the first time this year (I will not count the Arkansas State game as Kansas State did not have practice or half the roster).
So much went wrong for the Kansas State Wildcats that the harder question would be what went right in this game. Almost everything in this game went badly for K-State, except for the d-line and special teams. We will focus on the three main things that went badly in this game against West Virginia.
