Reserve quarterback Austin Kendall threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Simmons with 5:10 left and West Virginia held off Army 24-21 on Thursday in the Liberty Bowl.
Army (9-3) had a chance to tie it with 1:50 left, but Quinn Maretzki’s 39-yard field goal was wide left. Josh Chandler ended Army’s final possession with an interception, and led the Mountaineers (9-3) with 13 tackles.
Simmons also scored on a 5-yard pass from starting quarterback Jarret Doege.
West Virginia takes a 24-21 lead on a TD with a beautiful 2-pt conversion on a reverse at the Liberty Bowl. The biggest question is if 5:10 is enough time for Army to get all the way down the field.
