MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Skyler Howard was waiting for something good to happen to West Virginias offense.That occurred in the fourth quarter, when the Mountaineers came from 13 points down to beat Kansas State 17-16 on Saturday in the Big 12 opener for both teams.You know the snowball effect where you get one thing going wrong and the snowball just keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger? Howard said. Youre looking around like, man, we need a spark. We need something to happen.Our guys came together and kept fighting. Nobody was down or pointing fingers.Despite being held scoreless in the first half for the first time in three seasons, West Virginia improved to 4-0 for the first time since 2012. The Mountaineers broke a four-game losing streak to the Wildcats since joining the league that year.I just couldnt be more proud of our team for having the courage to go out there and do that in the second half, said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen.Kansas State (2-2) had a chance to win it. But Matthew McCrane, who earlier made three field goals, missed a 43-yarder wide left with 2:03 left. West Virginia got the ball at its 26 and ran out the clock.Kansas State was limited to 108 yards of offense in the second half.Our execution was not as good as it needs to be, said Kansas State coach Bill Snyder. We just probably didnt move the ball like we should. We struggled offensively in the second half when we had to have some movement. Couldnt get first downs.West Virginias turnaround began when Shelton Gibson caught a 52-yard pass near the end of the third quarter and KaRaun White caught a 7-yarder on fourth-and-6 four plays later. Justin Crawford ran nine yards on first-and-goal and he finished the drive with a 1-yard TD run with 13:41 left to cut the deficit to 16-10.A 31-yard punt later gave West Virginia the ball back at its 43, and Howard converted a third-down pass to KaRaun White at the Kansas State 9 before scrambling to find Jovon Durante in the right corner of the end zone from 7 yards out with 6:11 left for the final margin.I saw a little window and we took it, said Howard, who finished 24 of 41 passes for 298 yards with one interception. In the grand scheme of things, we make that play a lot in practice. But to finally do it in a game, it paid off.West Virginia squeaked by for the second straight game. A week ago the Mountaineers were ahead of BYU by 16 points in the fourth quarter and needed Maurice Flemings interception to seal the 35-32 win .Finding a way to win is the most important thing, Holgorsen said.THE TAKEAWAYKANSAS STATE: The Wildcats entered the game with the nations top defense but gave up 422 yards to the Mountaineers. Kansas State was held to 286 total yards of offense and Jesse Ertz completed 10 of 30 passes for 166 yards.Snyder said Ertz was not like he has been in the last couple of weeks. But once again, West Virginia had an awful lot to do with that.WEST VIRGINIA: The Mountaineers left plenty of points off the board. Rushel Shell fumbled the ball away at the Kansas State 3 late in the third quarter, and Josh Lambert earlier missed a 30-yard field goal.POLL IMPLICATIONSWest Virginia could get enough votes to sneak into the AP Top 25 poll but needed a more convincing win to ensure that happens. The Mountaineers entered Saturdays game four spots out of the poll.UP NEXTKANSAS STATE: Hosts Texas Tech next Saturday.WEST VIRGINIA: Heads into a bye week before playing its first true road game of the season at Texas Tech on Oct. 15.---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.orgMarcus Smart Jersey .

Reggie Lewis Jersey Kevin Mchale Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.CHICAGO -- Maybe the Chicago White Sox will change their luck by changing the name of their stadium.No guarantees, though.The ballpark currently called U.S. Cellular Field will become known as Guaranteed Rate Field starting in November. The team and the mortgage company announced a 13-year naming rights deal Wednesday.We view this partnership as an opportunity to connect a successful Chicago business with a historic baseball franchise, and we look forward to growing this important relationship over the coming years as millions of fans enjoy White Sox baseball at Guaranteed Rate Field, White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said.The White Sox are below .500 and are on the verge of missing the playoffs for the 10th time in 11 seasons since the 2005 team won the World Series.This is a very solid partner that is interested in helping us drive people to the ballpark and giving us the best opportunity to put the best possible product out on the field, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing Brooks Boyer said. The revenue generated for our club ... goes back out into the field. This is a nice step today toward continuing to fulfill the vision of putting the best possible club out on the field that can be out there for our fans.The agreement was approved by the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, which owns the ballpark. The White Sox hold a one-year option that could extend the deal through 2030.Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, though IFSA chairman Manny Sanchez said the agreement will generate up to $6.dddddddddddd4 million for the authority. He also said the IFSA figures to save at least $15 million and as much as $20-$25 million in potential facilities improvements as part of a compromise with the team for approving the naming rights deal.This is something that is really, really a serendipitous godsend that we have in my view encountered on behalf of the taxpayers of the state of Illinois, Sanchez said.The ballpark has been named U.S. Cellular Field since 2003 after being called new Comiskey Park from 1991 to 2002. Team personnel and fans refer to it as The Cell and on occasion Comiskey.Boyer said a new nickname will grow organically and ultimately be determined by fans.We talked about it, Guaranteed Rate President and CEO Victor Ciardelli said. We feel the fans should decide and the fans should make the decision.Another thing: Guaranteed Rates logo has an arrow pointing down. While customers might see that as a good direction for their rates, thats not the way teams want to go.That fact wasnt lost on Boyer, who said the White Sox and Guaranteed Rate are working on logos for the ballpark.Hopefully, well have the ERAs that follow that arrow and well have the winning percentage that goes the other way, Boyer said.
