17 -- Prior to the 47-40 overtime loss to Texas, the Mountaineers had been 17-0 in the past seven seasons when rushing for four or more touchdowns as a team. Charles Sims rushed for three scores and Dreamius Smith added another against the Longhorns, but the streak ended.
17.2 -- That number is the difference in percentage for WVU's third-down defense in wins and losses. The Mountaineers' defense has allowed the opposition to convert 52 of 105 third downs in their six losses - 49.5 percent. In wins, however, WVU has allowed 20 third-down conversions in 62 attempts - a 32.3 percent success rate for opposing offenses.
27 -- Kansas has dropped 27 consecutive Big 12 games, which is two away from the league mark set by Baylor (1998-2001). The Jayhawks last won a conference game on Nov. 6, 2010, a 52-45 triumph over Colorado. The Buffaloes are no longer in the league.
2005 -- Kansas drew 32,264 fans for its Oct. 26 home game against Baylor.
If there's a similar turnout when WVU visits, it'll be the smallest crowd the Mountaineers have played in front of since the 2005 season.
That year, West Virginia played in front of an announced crowd of 25,893 at Cincinnati and 21,717 spectators at Rutgers.
