Kansas coach Charlie Weis was drenched, as if he'd just jumped in Potter's Lake himself — the pond just up the hill from Memorial Stadium where the goalposts ended up.

It was a celebration two years in the making for Weis, whose face twisted into a shivering smile Saturday from the ice water poured over his head in the waning seconds of a 31-19 victory over West Virginia that ended the Jayhawks' 27-game Big 12 losing streak.

Now, the Jayhawks (3-7, 1-6) will try to make it two straight. They head to Iowa State on Saturday to face the lone remaining winless team in the Big 12.
