West Virginia football wraps up its season on the road in Stillwater, Oklahoma on Saturday when the Mountaineers face off against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
Although bowl eligibility is officially off the table for the Mountaineers, the squad believes it has plenty to play for as they look to end a disappointing campaign on a high note. Garrett Greene will start at quarterback for WVU once again and he looks to build off his first career nod.
The Cowboy quarterback situation is in flux, though, as Spencer Sanders will not start for OSU despite suiting up and walking in his Senior Day ceremony. Garret Rangel will start his second game for Oklahoma State.

FINAL: West Virginia holds on for a 24-19 win over Oklahoma State.
FIELD GOAL WEST VIRGINIA (24-19 – 5:59): West Virginia eats over five minutes off the clock and gets into the red zone, but they are forced to tap on Casey Legg to extend the lead to just five points. He makes the kick from 34 yards out.
TOUCHDOWN OKLAHOMA STATE (21-19 – 0:24): The Mountaineers fail on a fourth down conversion attempt and the Cowboys turn the opportunity into a touchdown. Ollie Gordon punches through the WVU defense for a 23-yard score, but the Cowboys are unable to finish the two-point try.
FIELD GOAL OKLAHOMA STATE (21-13 – 5:59): The game opens up a little for Oklahoma State, too, but the Cowboys can’t connect in the end zone as WVU’s defense tightens up. Tanner Brown hits his second field goal of the game, this time from 38 yards out.
TOUCHDOWN WEST VIRGINIA (21-10 – 9:53): Jaylen does it again! The redshirt freshman makes one cut and runs it in from 57 yards. He now has two career touchdowns — both of which are from today, and both are from over 50 yards out.
TOUCHDOWN WEST VIRGINIA (14-10 – 12:45): West Virginia opens the half with a touchdown drive as Jaylen Anderson scores his first career touchdown from 54 yards out. WVU gets back in front.
HALF: Oklahoma State leads by a field goal and will get the ball to start the second half.
FIELD GOAL OKLAHOMA STATE (10-7 – 0:14): A massive mistake in the secondary sends the Cowboys into the West Virginia red zone. The WVU defense comes up big in the end for the second straight drive, though, holding Oklahoma State to a field goal.
TOUCHDOWN OKLAHOMA STATE (7-7 – 14:56): The Cowboys score on the first play of the quarter on a quick swing route to the left side to Brennan Presley, who trots in untouched for a four-yard touchdown. That’s OSU’s first score of the game after opening the contest with four straight punts.
END 1Q: West Virginia has a 7-point lead, but the Cowboys hold the ball on the WVU 4 yard line.
5:05: Nicco Marchiol enters his first Big 12 game for West Virginia, but the drive goes three-and-out.
TOUCHDOWN WEST VIRGINIA (7-0 – 7:11): Garrett Greene starts WVU’s second drive of the game with a QB draw right up the middle. He sprints into the end zone from 36 yards out to open the scoring.
Oklahoma State receives the opening kick.
