WVU enters conference play fresh off a huge victory over NC State, but Kansas’ most recent win was every bit as big — if not bigger.
West Virginia’s first Big 12 opponent of 2019 is fresh off a 48-24 victory over Boston College, a win that snapped the Jayhawks’ 48-game road losing streak to Power 5 teams. Kansas blanked Boston College in the second half.
Both WVU and Kansas wiped away memories of bad defeats with their week three wins: the Mountaineers bounced back from a 31-point loss to Missouri, while Kansas rebounded from a five-point home loss to Coastal Carolina.
“Neither one of us were very pleased with how we played in the second game under a new staff,” Brown said. “I think it shows that Kansas responded well to coach [Les] Miles and his staff. They had great belief going up to Boston College. And so, without a doubt, two quality wins — one for us, one for them — and both teams will come into the game on Saturday with confidence.”
Brown also reiterated that he was impressed by how much the ground game improved in week three, thanks to some tweaks made by the coaching staff.
