No. 14 West Virginia beats Baylor 24-21 to get to 10 wins

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Skyler Howard did just enough on an erratic night to secure West Virginia's first 10-win regular season in a decade.

Howard threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, and No. 14 West Virginia held on for a 24-21 victory over Baylor on Saturday in their Big 12 regular-season finale.

After the game, West Virginia athletic director Shane Lyons announced in a statement that coach Dana Holgorsen was given a five-year contract extension to 2021.
