West Virginia Rolled the Jayhawks for its Third Straight Victory. Here's the Analysis From the Sidelines.

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Behind the running game and a defensive shutout, West Virginia blasted Kansas 49-0 to reach bowl eligibility and keep the idea of a late-season sweep intact.

The Mountaineers used 630 yards of offense - the 10th time WVU has reached the mark under Dana Holgorsen - in leading 42-0 at the half in an easier-than-expected win at Kansas. Here's the review from multiple skill slots, including Skyler Howard. Above, the quarterback, who finished with a team-best 129 yards, speaks to the shuffled offensive line, his ability to hit key passes in completing 13-of-22 for 133 yards and a score against one interception. Howard also details the team's effort, and getting to six wins to become bowl eligible.

Terrell Chestnut, below, reviews his interception return for a touchdown that led to a 14-0 lead and jumpstarted the avalanche of points. The corner also talks about the team returning to the scene of perhaps its greatest crime of the last few seasons in a 31-19 defeat at Kansas in 2013, and what this shutout meant to that effort, as well as to the defense as a whole.

And finally, running backs coach JaJuan Seider dissects the running game, and how WVU reacted after learning it would not have Adam Pankey available after the first series of play. Seider also delves into the 108-yard effort of Rushel Shell, and how the back managed to run downhill and again get behind his pads. Seider also discusses Wendell Smallwood finally scoring - twice - and the sideline reaction to that.
