West Virginia wins at TCU

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege threw the ball and then took a big hit. When he got up and looked down the field, he saw the official with his hands in the air signaling a touchdown.

Isaiah Esdale made an over-the-shoulder catch on a perfect pass for a 35-yard touchdown with 2:10 left, just getting his feet inside the pylon on the front corner of the end zone, and West Virginia ended coach Neal Brownís first season with a 20-17 win on Friday that kept the Horned Frogs from getting bowl eligible.

The game-winning drive by West Virginia (5-7, 3-6 Big 12) was extended by two huge penalties. There was a pass interference call on a fourth down, and then TCU defensive tackle Ross Blacklock was ejected for targeting for a hit on Doege on a third-and-12 incompletion only two plays before the go-ahead touchdown.
