Watch: West Virginia’s Leddie Brown breaks 87-yard TD run originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

West Virginia’s Leddie Brown was already having himself a game Saturday afternoon. The only thing missing from his stat line was a rushing touchdown.

The junior running back added that score in emphatic fashion, busting through a gaping hole on third-and-1 for an 87-yard touchdown to give the Mountaineers a two-score lead over Kansas in the third quarter.

The score not only put West Virginia up 24-10, but it also brought Brown’s rushing total to 195 yards on 18 carries. He also had five catches for 36 yards and a touchdown.

According to wvustats.com, the run is the fifth longest in school history and the longest since Noel Devine’s 88-yard scamper in 2009.

Brown’s performance against Kansas marks his third game this season with at least 100 rushing yards. West Virginia won the game 38-17 to improve to 3-1.
