MEMPHIS, TN - Kyle Allen threw four touchdown passes and ran for a fifth score Monday, and Texas A&M erased an early 10-point deficit to defeat West Virginia 45-37 in the Liberty Bowl.

Allen went 22 of 35 for 294 yards and threw two touchdown passes to Malcome Kennedy and one each to Josh Reynolds and Trey Williams, who also had an 18-yard touchdown run. Allen's 14-yard rushing TD in the final minute of the first half put Texas A&M (8-5) ahead for good.

Tra Carson ran for a career-high 133 yards on 25 carries.

Skyler Howard went 20 of 45 for 346 yards and three touchdowns for West Virginia (7-6) while making his second career start in place of Clint Trickett, who announced Friday he was giving up football because of multiple concussions.

Texas A&M has won bowl games in four straight seasons for the first time in school history.
