Smith throws 3 TDs, ties NCAA single-game completion mark, West Virginia routs Kansas 59-10

Geno Smith threw for 407 yards and three touchdowns in his final home game to lead West Virginia to a 59-10 win over Kansas on Saturday.

Smith completed 23 of 24 passes and became the first West Virginia quarterback to throw for 40 touchdowns in a season. His 95.8 completion percentage matched the single-game Bowl Subdivision record set by Tennessee's Tee Martin against South Carolina in 1998.

West Virginia (7-5, 4-5 Big 12) scored touchdowns on five of its six first-half possessions. Stedman Bailey had 159 receiving yards and two touchdowns to boost his FBS-leading total to 23.

Kansas (1-11, 0-9) lost for the 11th straight time, the longest streak at the school since the Jayhawks lost 17 straight from 1953-55.
