WALK-ONS

“Being a walk-on is a tremendous opportunity. You have to stick to the process and have that belief, that hope that you can do it. Keep working every day, regardless of whether you have a scholarship or not.� Nick Meadows Long Snapper

“Walk-ons are special people. I respect every walk-on in the country, and how hard they have to work. Every walk-on who earned a scholarship, I know where they came from and the pressures they have.� Justin Arndt

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Sept. 3, 2016) - West Virginia opened the 2016 season with a solid 26-11 victory the SEC’s Missouri, in front of 60,125 fans at Milan Puskar Stadium. A beautiful Labor Day Saturday, with an 81 degree temperature, provided the setting for the start of the 125th year of West Virginia football. Festivities for the day included the retirement of Bruce Bosley’s No. 77, recognition of WVU’s five Olympic medalists from the 2016 Rio games, including Gold medalist Ginny Thrasher and the wearing of a special helmet logo celebrating the 125th year. The Mountaineers wasted little time in setting the tone for the game and sending the home folks away happy. Racking up 10 first-quarter points and the game’s first 13 points, West Virginia grabbe¬¬d the lead and never reliniqushed it. At the 5:41 mark of the first quarter, redshirt junior Mike Molina kicked the first field goal of his career, a 19-yarder that started the scoring for the season, giving WVU a 3-0 lead. Before the end of the quarter, senior tailback Rushel Shell III finished off a nine-play 88-yard drive with a 23-yard run, giving WVU its first touchdown of 2016 and a 10-0 advantage. In the second quarter, Molina added his second field goal, this time from 26 yards, to give West Virginia a 13-0 cushion. Missouri did strike before the half ended as Tucker McCann’s 24-yard field goal finished

off a nine-play, 68-yard drive and provided the Tigers their first points of the season. Leading 13-3 at the half, West Virginia started the third quarter strong and essentially put the game away by outscoring the Tigers 10-0 in the quarter. The opening possession of the third quarter saw the Mountaineers turn in an eight-play, 70-yard scoring drive, which was finished off by tailback Justin Crawford’s first career touchdown from one-yard away. Later in the quarter, Molina was good on his third field goal, as his 21-yarder ended a 67-yard drive and upped West Virginia’s advantage to 23-3 heading into the fourth. Missouri outscored the Mountaineers in the fourth quarter by scoring eight points in the game’s final two minutes, but it was far too little and too late. Molina struck for the fourth time at the 7:26 mark with his longest field goal, 33 yards, to up the WVU margin to 26-3. The Tigers scored their first touchdown of 2016 with 1:49 left, as quarterback Drew Lock found receiver Chris Black for an eight-yard scoring toss. Lock then connected with receiver J’Mon Moore for the twopoint conversion to end the scoring at 26-11 in favor of the Mountaineers. WVU’s Skyler Howard finished with 253 yards passing, while Crawford made the most of his debut with 101 yards rushing and one score, averaging 4.8 yards per carry. Shell III added 90 yards rushing and one touchdown, giving the Mountaineers a strong one-two combination in the running game Receiver Daikiel Shorts Jr. turned in the first 100-yard receiving game of his career, and was Howard’s favorite target with eight receptions for 131 yards with a long catch of 29 yards. The Mountaineer defense received eight tackles each from Antonio Crawford and Justin Arndt to pace the unit. Lock totalled 280 yards passing for Missouri and the Tigers had two 100-yard receivers. Moore caught eight passes for 104 yards, while Black added 102 yards on six receptions. Leading the Tiger defense was Michael Scherer with 10 stops. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 241 yards rushing and 253 passing to total 494 yards of offense. Missouri turned in 180 yards on the ground to go along with 282 passing for 462 yards of offense. Seven Mountaineers earned their first career start in the game and a whopping 21 players saw action for the first time in a West Virginia Uniform. The win broke a five-game losing streak for the Mountaineers against SEC teams and now puts them at 6-5 in their last 11 games versus the conference. West Virginia is now 25-25-1 all-time against the SEC. The victory also evened WVU’s all-time series record against Missouri at 3-3, and marked the 13th straight year that the Mountaineers have won their home opener at Milan Puskar Stadium. Head coach Dana Holgorsen has won six of those 13 straight and now stands at 6-0 all-time in home openers.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Sept. 10, 2016) - West Virginia used five touchdown passes, including three of more than 50 yards to defeat Youngstown State, 38-21, at Milan Puskar Stadium. Quarterback Skyler Howard threw all five touchdown passes, which tied his career-best, and his 389 yards passing were the secondbest of his career. He finished the day with 20 completions and added 50 yards rushing. Youngstown State played the Mountaineers to a draw in the first half. However, the 91 degree temperatures for the day could have taken a toll on the Penguins as the Mountaineers depth dominated YSU to the tune of 24-7 in the second half. West Virginia struck first with 3:16 left in the first quarter on a 53-yard pass play from Howard to Ka’Raun White to end an 80-yard drive. Youngstown State came back to score the next 14 points to take a 14-7 lead at the 10:13 mark of the second quarter. The Penguins’ first score came early in the second quarter on a one-yard run by Martin Ruiz, capping a 72-yard drive. YSU took the lead on a Ricky Davis 74-yard touchdown pass to Alvin Bailey that finished off an 80yard drive in just three plays. The Youngstown State game plan was working at this point with a

methodical approach and ball-control offense to keep the ball away from the Mountaineers. To counter, West Virginia had to strike when it had its chances and the big play worked on this day for the home team. A 54-yard touchdown pass from Howard to Shelton Gibson took care of the deficit with 3:15 left in the half. The Mountaineers had a chance to take the lead into the locker room, but a last-second missed field goal by Mike Molina kept the gamed knotted at 14. Third-quarter action saw the Mountaineers rack up 17 points to take a 31-14 advantage. West Virginia’s first possession in the quarter provided a nine-play, 86-yard drive and ended on a Howard 11-yard pass to Daikiel Shorts Jr. Leading 21-14, West Virginia scored on its next two possessions as Molina made good on a 32-yard field goal. That scoring drive covered 65 yards, and the Mountaineers were starting to tally big numbers on the offensive side of the ball as their depth continued to wear down the Penguins in the scorching heat. Taking advantage of their scoring chances, WVU’s last touchdown of the third was a 57yard touchdown pass from Howard to Gibson as the duo connected on their second score in the game. YSU’s backup quarterback, Trent Hosick, entered the game in the fourth quarter and engineered a nine-play drive that ended on his 15-yard scoring run, cutting WVU’s lead to 3121 with 8:44 left to play. The Mountaineers added a score with 3:18 left to play, when Howard went to the air one more time and found true freshman tailback Kennedy McKoy for a 21-yard reception, the first TD of McKoy’s WVU career. Aside from Howard’s numbers, tailback Rushel Shell III was strong with 84 yards rushing and a 5.2 average. Gibson turned in a career day with 171 yards receiving, followed by Shorts. Jr. with 93 and White with 88 receiving yards. Defensive back Rasul Douglas led the defensive effort with 11 tackles, while AlRasheed Benton pulled in the first interception of his career. For Youngstown State, Davis finished with 189 yards passing, and his top target was Bailey with three catches for 92 yards. Davis also led the Penguins in rushing with 62 yards and a 4.8 yards per carry average. Jameel Smith led the Youngstown State defense with 12 stops. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 235 yards rushing and 389 passing to total 624 yards of total offense. Youngstown State’s final numbers came in at 185 yards on the ground and 220 passing for 405 total yards. The victory gave West Virginia a 2-0 record all-time against Youngstown State and upped the Mountaineers’ record to 17-0 all-time against FCS teams and 6-0 vs. the FCS under head coach Dana Holgorsen.

LANDOVER, Md. (Sept. 24, 2016) - West Virginia and Brigham Young squared off in a neutral site game at the home of the Washington Redskins, and the Mountaineers came out a 3532 winner at FedExField in Landover, Maryland. The game did not disappoint in terms of excitement and big plays and came down to the final minute, as West Virginia turned in two big defensive plays in the fourth quarter to earn the victory. With WVU leading, 35-32, Jeremy Tyler’s interception with 4:15 left ended one Cougar threat. Iowa transfer Maurice Fleming’s interception at the two-yard line in the final minute ended the last BYU chance and sealed the victory for the Mountaineers. To get the game started, West Virginia used a 5:38 drive to march 88 yards on 13 plays for a 7-0 lead, when tailback Rushel Shell III rushed in from six-yards away. The big play in the drive was a 35-yard pass play from quarterback Skyler Howard to junior receiver Shelton Gibson. BYU answered on its first possession with a 6:33 drive that lasted 12 plays and covered 78 yards. The Cougars tied the game on a 25-yard pass from Taysom Hill to Mitch Juergens. Only 2:44 remained in the opening quarter and each team only had the ball once, as long, sustained drives consumed much of the quarter. The Cougars grabbed their only lead of the game with 14:17 left in the half with a Rhett Almond 22-yard field goal. A 56yard run by tailback Jamaal Williams set up the score.

West Virginia regained the lead for good as Shell’s second touchdown in the game came at the 9:50 mark of the first half, when he powered in from the two-yard line to end an 86-yard drive. Leading 14-10, WVU cornerback Rasul Douglas made Hill pay for an errant pass, returning the interception 54 yards for West Virginia’s third score of the game with 2:23 left before halftime. Brigham Young quickly moved the ball 43 yards and ended the half on Almond’s 25-yard field goal to put its deficit at 21-13 heading into the locker room. Much like West Virginia started the game with a long scoring drive, Brigham Young did the same to start the second half. A 4:08 drive ended with a sevenyard touchdown run by Williams to tighten the game at, 21-19, early in the third. However, there was no panic on the West Virginia sideline, and after the defense forced a BYU fumble, the Mountaineers stretched their lead to 28-19 on Howard’s five-yard scoring run with 2:28 left in the third quarter. West Virginia’s offense went back to work in the fourth quarter and turned in an impressive 99-yard drive highlighted by a 32-yard connection from Howard to Gibson. A nine-yard scoring reception by receiver Daikiel Shorts Jr. gave the Mountaineers what seemed to be a comfortable 35-19 lead with 11:20 left in the game. But Brigham Young would not go away, which set up late game excitement on the neutral field. Hill brought the Cougars back to within 10, 35-25, at the 9:09 mark, as he engineered a 67-yard drive that ended with a three-yard touchdown run by Williams. After a West Virginia punt, Hill again had the Cougars on the move with a nine-play, 72 yard drive that ended with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Moroni Laulu-Pututau. Only 4:15 was left, but WVU could not run out the clock, giving the ball back to BYU. Tyler’s interception ended one Cougar drive, but when the Mountaineers fumbled on the BYU four-yard line with 2:36 left, the Cougars had one last chance. Needing only a field goal to tie, BYU moved the ball to the West Virginia 28-yard line, but Fleming’s interception of Hill ended BYU’s final threat. West Virginia got big numbers from Gibson with 144 yards receiving, while Howard finished with 332 yards passing. The defensive effort came up with three total interceptions of Hill and was paced by Kyzir White with nine tackles. Williams was an outstanding rusher for the Cougars as he finished with 169 yards (128 in the first half) and two scores. Not only did Hill pass for 241 yards, but he turned in another 101 yards rushing to join Williams in leading the BYU offense. Fred Warner collected 14 tackles for the Cougar defense. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 149 yards on the ground and 332 through the air to total 481 yards of total offense. Brigham Young finished with 280 yards rushing and 241 passing for 521 total yards. The Mountaineers won the turnover battle by a 4-2 count. The big play extended scoring drives of 99, 88, 86 and 59 yards, along with a 54-yard interception return.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Oct. 1, 2016) West Virginia was looking for its first Big 12 victory over Kansas State in four tries and finally broke through in the fifth effort with a 17-16 win over the Wildcats in front of 61,701 on Homecoming at Milan Puskar Stadium. While the offense struggled in the first half, the West Virginia defense kept the Mountaineers in the game by holding Kansas State to three field goals on key possessions and keeping the Wildcats out of the end zone. Kansas State’s chance for the road win ended with 2:03 remaining, when Matthew McCrane missed a 43-yard field goal, enabling the Mountaineers to run out the clock. After being shut out in the first half for the first time since 2013 and first time at home since 2005, the Mountaineers used a spark in the running game from Justin Crawford, who delivered several key runs. The passing attack was aided by clutch catches from junior receiver Shelton Gibson to keep drives alive and move the chains in big chunks of yards. The Mountaineers had the first crack at scoring, but senior kicker Josh Lambert missed on 30-yard field goal attempt to end an early drive. The fourth game of the season marked the return of the former Lou Groza Award finalist after being suspended for the first three games of the season. After Lambert’s miss, Kansas State came up with the game’s first turnover when WVU quarterback Skyler Howard’s pass to receiver Ka’Raun White was bobbled and intercepted by KSU’s Elijah Lee.

The Wildcats made the Mountaineers pay for the turnover with a seven-play, 48-yard drive that ended with a two-yard scoring run by quarterback Jesse Ertz. Kansas State extended its lead to 10-0 at the 12:04 mark of the second quarter, when McCrane converted a 37-yard field goal attempt. The scoring drive covered nine plays and 46 yards. West Virginia could not muster any scoring chances in the second quarter and fell behind 13-0 at the half when McCrane converted on a 31-yard field goal with 1:06 remaining. Ertz completed a pass of 37 yards and tailback Dalvin Warmack had a big 18-yard rush in the drive to set up the score. Once again, the Mountaineer defense was able to keep the Wildcats out of the end zone on the 11-play scoring drive, which consumed more than 5:00 in the quarter. Trailing only 13-0 at the half was a plus for West Virginia, which was outgained 178-174, in total yards at the halfway point. West Virginia got the ball first in the second half, and needed to put some points on the board. The offense delivered with a 55-yard drive and a 37-yard field goal by Lambert. Howard hit receiver Daikiel Shorts Jr. for a 31-yard pass play to move the chains on third down and keep the drive alive. After Lambert’s field goal, Kansas State struck again with a 58-yard kickoff return by Byron Pringle setting the Wildcat offense up in good field position. Ertz took care of the rest as he rushed for 25 of the 37 yards in the nine-play drive, leading to a 22-yard field goal by McCrane for a 16-3 Wildcat advantage. However, once again, the Mountaineer defense kept KSU out of the end zone, which would be crucial heading into the final stanza. Fourth quarter action belonged to West Virginia as the Mountaineers used two scoring drives and a big defensive stand to finally break through and defeat Kansas State. The Mountaineers scored their first touchdown of the game with 13:41 left to play on Crawford’s oneyard run. The score was set up by Howard’s 52-yard completion to Gibson. With Kansas State leading 16-10, the Mountaineer defense continued to keep the game close, coming up with an interceptions and a threeand-out on the Wildcats’ next two drives. With the sellout crowd back in the game, Howard started the winning drive with 8:18 left to play. Nine snaps later, he found Jovon Durante for a seven-yard scoring toss to give the Mountaineers their first lead. Howard finished with 298 yards passing, Crawford added 104 rushing and Gibson 104 yards receiving to lead the WVU offense. Jarrod Harper paced thre defense with eight tackles. KSU got 166 yards passing from Ertz followed by 61 receiving from Pringle and 53 from tailback Charles Jones. The Wildcat defense was led by Elijah Lee with eight tackles, one sack and one interception. McCrane hit his first three field goals, but could not convert on attempt number four. Final totals showed West Virginia with 124 yards rushing and 298 passing to total 422 yards of offense. Kansas State finished with 120 yards on the ground and 166 through the air for 286 total yards. West Virginia improved to 4-0 and won its Big 12 Conference opener for the first time since 2012. The victory broke an overall five-game losing streak to Kansas State.

LUBBOCK, TEXAS. (Oct. 15, 2016) - West Virginia gained an important Big 12 road victory with a dominating 48-17 victory over Texas Tech at Jones AT&T Stadium. Texas Tech entered the Big 12 matchup as the No. 1 passing team in the nation and No. 2 in total offense and scoring, but that was before the Red Raiders met West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson and his 3-3-5 defense. The Mountaineer defense dominated the Red Raider offense, holding it to a season low in points, breaking its 50-point home scoring streak and limiting the Texas Tech rushing attack to just 34 yards. Meanwhile, the Mountaineer offense clicked on many cylinders with a 100-yard receiver and rusher, the highest scoring output of the season and outgaining the Red Raiders by 271 yards. Pregame hype predicted a highscoring shootout between the two teams and first-quarter action did not do anything to dispel the thinking. West Virginia got on the board at the 9:30 mark of the first quarter on tailback Justin Crawford’s 10-yard run, ending an impressive 91-yard drive. A 53-yard pass from quarterback Skyler Howard to receiver Daikiel Shorts Jr. proved to be the big play in the drive. After a missed WVU field goal, Texas Tech took advantage of the field position to complete a 74-yard scoring drive, highlighted by a 44-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Patrick Mahomes to receiver Jonathan Giles. The scoring play tied the game at 7-7 with 1:51 left in the quarter.

However, West Virginia was left with enough time to take a 10-7 lead after one quarter on a 34-yard field goal by kicker Mike Molina. A 51-yard pass play from Howard to Jovon Durante changed the field position and put the Mountaineers in field goal range. After the Texas Tech touchdown, the West Virginia defense started to assert itself on the nation’s No. 1 passing team. The Mountaineers held the Red Raiders to just three points on their next six possessions and 51 plays before a late fourth-quarter touchdown by Tech. While the Mountaineer defense was putting the clamps on the Red Raiders, the offense kept clicking. Fourteen more points in the second quarter gave West Virginia a 24-7 halftime lead. Crawford turned in his second touchdown on a five-yard pass play with Howard. Once again a big 47-yard pass play from Howard to Gary Jennings set up the score, which completed an 89-yard drive. Then Howard got in on the scoring action a little more than two minutes later with an eight-yard run. Howard’s 20-yard run and his 27-yard completion to Shorts. Jr. were the big plays. Texas Tech took the opening possession of the third quarter and came away with a 42-yard field goal by Clayton Hatfield to pull the Red Raiders within 14 points at 24-10. However, the Mountaineers went on to score 17 straight points to put the game away. Before the third quarter ended, Molina added a 22-yard field goal, before Howard engineered an eight-play, 83-yard drive early in the fourth and capped it off with a one-yard run for his second score of the afternoon. Freshman running back Kennedy McKoy provided the rushing spark in the second half, coming up with 56 yards on the ground in the drive. The Mountaineers took advantage of a bad Tech snap on a punt to gain good field position, setting up a 14-yard touchdown run by Rushel Shell III. The Red Raiders added a fourth quarter score, when backup quarterback Nic Shimonek hit Giles for a 16-yard touchdown reception. In an effort to run out the fourth quarter clock, the Mountaineers turned in a 75-yard fourth quarter drive, which saw Shell add his second touchdown in the game. Between Shell and McKoy, WVU rushed the ball 10-straight times en-route to the end zone. Howard turned in more than 400 yards of total offense with 318 yards passing and 89 yards rushing. Shorts. Jr. reached 100 yards receiving on just three catches, while Shell III finished with 104 yards rushing, just ahead of McKoy’s 99 rushing yards. Defensively, five Mountaineers turned in five tackles each, and the unit accumulated four sacks, eight tackles for a loss of 60 yards and one interception For Texas Tech, Mahomes finished with 305 yards passing, while Giles hauled in 136 yards receiving. The Red Raider defense was led by Jah’Shawn Johnson with 10 tackles. Final totals showed West Virginia with 332 yards rushing and 318 passing for a balanced 650 yards of total offense. Texas Tech finished with 34 yards on the ground and 345 through the air for a final total of 379 yard of offense. The win gave West Virginia its third straight victory over Texas Tech and raised its season record to 5-0 overall and 2-0 in Big 12 play. The Red Raiders fell to 3-3 overall and 1-2 in league play. Overall, the Mountaineers now lead the all-time series against the Red Raiders by a 4-2 count.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Oct. 22, 2016) - West Virginia used four touchdown passes from Skyler Howard and another great defensive effort to defeat TCU, 3410, in front of 61,780 fans at Milan Puskar Stadium. The game was West Virginia’s most complete of the season. Howard completed 70 percent of his passes and threw touchdown passes of 10, 22, 11 and 16 yards in leading the Mountaineer offense. The WVU special teams forced two fumbles, with one leading to a touchdown, while the defense held the Horned Frogs scoreless in the second half and well below their more than 40-point scoring average. On the game’s opening kickoff, Marvin Gross Jr. forced a fumble by TCU’s Deante Gray, which was recovered by Nana Kyeremeh to start the momentum and put the home crowd into a frenzy. Starting at the TCU 17-yard line, it took only three plays for Howard to find receiver Daikiel Shorts Jr. for a 10-yard scoring strike. The fumble and subsequent touchdown were important, because West Virginia won the coin toss and elected to defer to the second half. With the Mountaineers getting the ball to start the third quarter, along with forcing a fumble on the opening kickoff, it basically took a drive and scoring chance away from the Horned Frogs and they never recovered. A Rasul Douglas interception on TCU’s actual first possession again put the Horned Frogs in a hole. West Virginia added to its lead at the 9:37 mark of the first quarter when Howard connected with Shelton Gibson for a 22-yard touchdown pass.

TCU cut into the West Virginia lead before the quarter ended on a Brandon Hatfield 30-yard field goal, ending a 62-yard drive in 11 plays. The Horned Frogs again were on the march early in the second quarter and completed a 76-yard drive on Jaelan Austin’s 11-yard reception from quarterback Kenny Hill to pull within four at 14-10. But that’s as close as the Horned Frogs would get to overcoming the fumble on the opening kickoff. The Mountaineer defense took over from there and blanked the high-powered TCU offense the rest of the way. West Virginia extended its lead in the second quarter to 21-10 and that’s where it stayed going into the locker room after Gary Jennings hauled in an 11yard pass from Howard for the score, ending a 67-yard drive. Just as the fumble on the opening kickoff eliminated a scoring opportunity for the Horned Frogs, the Mountaineers made the most of their first possession of the second half. By controlling the clock for 7:36, the Mountaineers kept the Horned Frog offense off the field and added a 38-yard Mike Molina field goal for a 24-10 advantage. The scoring drive took 15 plays and saw the Mountaineers convert on three third-down opportunities to open up the 14-point cushion. West Virginia found the end zone for the fourth and final time with 1:02 left in the third quarter. Howard’s fourth TD stike was a 16-yard completion to Ka’Raun White, putting the finishing touches on an 11-play drive. The Mountaineers added a Molina 26-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to close the scoring. Molina’s field goal ended a 5:51, 10-play drive giving West Virginia three drives of more than five minutes long. WVU’s three scroring drives in the second half timed out at 7:36, 5:17 and 5:51 and eliminated any chance of a TCU comeback. Aside from Howard’s numbers, tailback Rushel Shell III was a workhorse for the Mountaineers, turning in his second straight 100-yard performance. Shell’s numbers showed 24 carries for 117 yards with a long run of 28 yards and a 4.9 yards per carry average. He also turned in two catches for 35 yards with a long reception of 28. Shorts. Jr. topped the West Virginia receivers with four catches for 74 yards and one score as Howard completed passes to six different receivers in the game. West Virginia’s defense was led by linebackers Justin Arndt and Al-Rasheed Benton with six tackles each. The TCU offense was paced by running back Kyle Hicks with 103 yards on 15 carries. Hill passed for 148 yards, with his favorite target being Daniel Walsh with four receptions. The TCU defense was led by Travin Howard with 11 tackles, while the unit as a whole collected five sacks and 10 tackles for loss. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 158 yards rushing and 231 passing to total 389 yards of offense. TCU came in at 152 yards on the ground and 148 through the air for 300 yards of total offense. West Virginia’s edge in time of possession came into play with the Mountaineers holding a commanding 33:40 to 26:20 edge, which basically kept Howard and the Mountaineer offense on the field and Hill and the Horned Frog attack off the field. The win raised the West Virginia record to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in the Big 12. It marked the first time the Mountaineers have started the season 6-0 since 2006.

STILLWATER, Okla. (Oct. 29, 2016) - Oklahoma State took advantage of three West Virginia turnovers to hand the No. 10/9 Mountaineers their first loss of the season, 37-20, at Boone Pickens Stadium. The Cowboys converted those three turnovers into 17 points, which provided the difference in the game. Despite winning just about every key statistical category, the Mountaineers could not overcome the turnovers, as the Cowboys won in front of 59,584 fans on Homecoming. The victory was also Oklahoma State Coach Mike Gundy’s 100th career win at his alma mater. The game started well for West Virginia as the Mountaineers scored first at the 10:57 mark of the first quarter. Capping an 11-play drive, kicker Mike Molina gave the Mountaineers a 3-0 lead after his 36-yard field goal. It didn’t take long for Oklahoma State to answer the score with a field goal of its own. Driving 49 yards, the Cowboys tied the game on Ben Grogan’s 32-yard field goal with 7:02 left in the opening quarter. The Cowboys took their first lead in the game with just 1:25 left in the first, when Grogan made good on a 25-yard field goal attempt, ending a 71-yard drive. However, West Virginia regained the lead early in the second quarter, when quarterback Skyler Howard connected with receiver Shelton Gibson for a 19yard touchdown pass. The drive covered 75 yards in 12 plays and ate up 4:57 of the clock.

But the day started to turn after that touchdown. On WVU’s next possession, OSU’s Vincent Taylor sacked Howard and forced a fumble, which was recovered at the Mountaineer eight-yard line. It didn’t take long for Oklahoma State to make the Mountaineers pay as quarterback Mason Rudolph connected with Chris Lacy two plays later for a five-yard scoring toss and a 13-10 OSU lead with 8:26 left in the half. Seizing on the momentum, Oklahoma State would not lose the lead again and upped its margin to 20-10 after a missed WVU field goal. Rudolph led the Cowboys on a 15-play, 78-yard drive and ended it with a three-yard pass to Jalen McClesky for the 10-point lead at the break. Oklahoma State had the ball first to start the third quarter, and the Mountaineers needed a stop, and got the break they needed, when Grogan missed on a 38-yard field goal attempt. But West Virginia could not capitalize on the missed field goal and Oklahoma State added to its lead, when Ramon Richards intercepted Howard and returned it 59 yards to the Mountaineer nine-yard line. Three plays later, Rudolph scampered in from two yards out for a 27-10 OSU lead at the 2:08 mark of the third quarter. Moving quickly, West Virginia countered early in the fourth quarter on a 12-yard Howard touchdown run, closing the deficit to 27-17. West Virginia then closed the gap to 27-20 on a Molina 21-yard field goal with 8:58 left in the game. However, Oklahoma State answered when it needed too. Holding the seven-point advantage, Rudolph directed the Cowboy offense on a 67-yard drive that saw him throw for 59 of the 67 yards, giving Oklahoma State a 34-20 advantage with 5:15 left. The Cowboys closed the game with one more interception of Howard, which was returned 26 yards by defensive back Kevin Henry. The interception led to a 22-yard field goal by Grogan, his third of the game and the 17-point victory. Howard finished with 212 yards passing and Kennedy McKoy and Justin Crawford combined for 163 yards rushing in the absence of an injured Rushel Shell III. Daikiel Shorts Jr. led the West Virginia receivers with 82 yards on a career high eight catches, while Justin Arndt, Noble Nwachukwu and Al-Rasheed Benton each turned in seven tackles. Rudolph finished with 273 yards passing and three touchdowns to go along with one rushing score. James Washington finished with six catches for 177 yards, while McClesky hauled in 11 catches. The Cowboy defense was led by Chad Whitener with 13 tackles, including one sack. Final totals for the two teams stood at 209 yards rushing for the Mountaineers and 212 passing for 421 yards of total offense. Oklahoma State turned in 85 yards on the ground and 273 through the air for 358 total yards. The victory gave Oklahoma State a 3-2 lead in Big 12 play against West Virginia, and the loss broke a seven-game overall winning streak for the Mountaineers and a three-game Big 12 Conference winning streak.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Nov. 5, 2016) - West Virginia brought in the month of November with its seventh win of the season, dominating Kansas, 48-21, in front of 56,343 on a chilly night in Morgantown. Trying to bounce back from a loss at Oklahoma State the week before, the Mountaineers took care of business and built up a 31-0 halftime lead to let everyone know that there were no lingering effects from the week before. The Mountaineer defense held the Jayhawks to just 53 rushing yards in the first half and 135 yards total in tossing a first-half shutout. WVU quarterback Skyler Howard was responsible for five touchdowns (2 rushing, 3 passing) and totaled 324 allpurpose yards. Despite missing injured starter Rushel Shell III at tailback, Justin Crawford and Kennedy McKoy filled in admirably as both went over 100 yards to lead the rushing attack. The ground game complemented the passing attack as two WVU receivers went over the 100-yard receiving mark, giving the Mountaineers four players with more than 100 yards at their respective positions. It didn’t take West Virginia long to get on the scoreboard, as the Mountaineers took the game’s opening possession 57 yards and collected a 35yard field goal from Mike Molina. Before the quarter ended, Howard engineered a 77-yard drive that ended with his 22-yard touchdown run for a 10-0 advantage. A 44-yard run by McKoy was the big play in the drive.

Three more touchdowns in the second quarter enabled West Virginia to build up a 31-point cushion. Howard called his own number again with 8:27 left in the half, rushing in from 33 yards out. His run accounted for 33 of the 52 yards in the drive. West Virginia marched again on its next possession, going 72 yards in seven plays, scoring on Howard’s seven-yard touchdown strike to Daikiel Shorts Jr. Like McKoy on a previous scoring drive, Crawford turned in the big play with a 37-yard rush on third-and-two to keep the drive alive. West Virginia’s final scoring drive of the first half started with just 1:32 left on the clock, but the Mountaineers made the most of what little time was left before halftime. Howard completed a 21-yard pass to Shorts. Jr. and a 17-yard pass to receiver Ka’Raun White to set up a 19-yard scoring toss to receiver Shelton Gibson for the 31-0 advantage. Kansas got its first points of the game early in the third by taking advantage of a West Virginia fumble deep in its own territory. Ke’aun Kinners rushed in from two yards away and accounted for all 29 yards in the drive, putting the score at 31-7. The Mountaineers rebounded from the fumble on the earlier possession and drove 65 yards in four plays to take a 38-7 lead on Crawford’s 27-yard touchdown run. Crawford also had a 25-yard run to get the drive started before ending it with his first score of the night. Later in the third quarter, the Mountaineers padded their lead, when Howard connected with Gibson for another scoring toss. The 32-yard pass play ended a 67-yard drive and gave West Virginia a 45-7 lead with 5:35 left in the third quarter. Kansas closed the scoring in the third, when backup quarterback Carter Stanley hit Martin Taylor for a 45-yard pass play, putting the score at 45-14 heading into the fourth. After a missed WVU field goal, Kansas scored its final points, when Stanley hooked up with Steven Sims for an 11-yard touchdown reception. Making amends for the earlier miss, Molina ended the scoring with 9:53 left, when he converted on a career-long 39-yard field goal, which was set up by a 51-yard kickoff return by Gibson. Howard’s night ended at 260 passing yards, with 104 going to Shorts. Jr. on seven catches and 102 going to Gibson on four catches. Crawford finished with 129 rushing yards on 13 carries, while McKoy totaled 127 on 18 attempts. The Mountaineer defense was led by Jarrod Harper with seven solo tackles and Rasul Douglas with two interceptions. Jayhawk quarterback Montell Cozart finished with 124 yards passing, while Stanley added 127 passing yards coming off the bench. Kinner led the Jayhawk rushers with 65 yards, while Sims topped all receivers with 124 yards on nine catches. Leading the Kansas defense was Tevin Shaw, Fish Smithson and Dorance Armstrong with seven tackles each. Final numbers showed West Virginia with an impressive 341 yards rushing and 264 passing for 605 yards of offense. Kansas ended the night with 150 yards on the ground and 291 through the air for 441 yards. With the win, West Virginia upped its record to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the Big 12. The Mountaineers have now won three straight in the series with Kansas.

AUSTIN, Texas. (Nov.12, 2016) - No. 11/10 West Virginia earned victory number eight of the 2016 season with a 24-20 win at Texas in front of 98,673 fans at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium. The Mountaineers jumped out to a 17-3 first-half lead and survived several Texas comeback attempts to hang on for the win. Despite committing four turnovers, West Virginia got a strong effort from its defense, which kept the Longhorns scoreless on all four drives after the turnovers. It was the Mountaineers who scored the only points off miscues as three Longhorn turnovers resulted in seven points for the visitors. Texas won the coin toss and elected to receive, and the move paid off as the Longhorns jumped out to a 3-0 lead on Trent Domingue’s 25-yard field goal. The drive covered 65 yards in 12 plays and proved to be Texas’ only lead in the game. The lead lasted only 4:39 before West Virginia scored on its first possession. Quarterback Skyler Howard directed a 13-play drive that resulted in kicker Mike Molina’s 44-yard field goal to tie the game. The kick was a season and career long for Molina. The Mountaineers took the lead with 2:27 left in the first, when freshman tailback Kennedy McKoy found the end zone on an eight-yard run. McKoy’s touchdown came after West Virginia marched 66 yards in nine plays. On the drive, Howard completed three passes of 11 yards or more to keep the chains moving. West Virginia upped its lead to 17-3 early in the second quarter, when Howard

connected on a 29-yard touchdown pass to Ka’Raun White to end a 70-yard drive. White was interfered with on the play and actually caught the ball while lying on his back. Trailing by 14 points, Texas battled back in the second quarter to cut its deficit to four at halftime. At the 7:35 mark, Longhorn quarterback Shane Buechele scored on a 10-yard run to make the score 17-10. On its next possession, Texas basically ran out the second quarter clock by keeping the ball for 6:48, using 21 plays to drive 84 yards. However, the Mountaineer defense held at the two-yard line, forcing the Longhorns to settle for a Domingue 19-yard field goal. With the first possession of the second half, West Virginia moved the ball 41 yards in two plays, but faltered on one of three Howard interceptions. After the West Virginia defense held again, the Mountaineers added to their lead after blocking a Texas field goal attempt. Howard directed a 79-yard scoring drive that was highlighted by his 48 yards passing and ended with McKoy’s second touchdown in the game, this one from three yards away. With WVU leading 24-13, Texas scored before the end of the third to close the gap to 24-20. The Longhorns turned in an 80-yard drive, and receiver Colin Johnson hauled in a 20-yard touchdown pass from Buechele for the score with 1:28 left in the third. Who knew at the time that those would be the final points in the game. Texas mounted four more drives in the fourth quarter only to be stopped by the Mountaineer defense. The Longhorns reached the West Virginia 15-yard line on one drive before WVU safety Kyzir White forced a Buechele fumble on a dramatic sack. The next two drives lasted five and six plays before the Longhorns reached the Mountaineer 27-yard line on their final possession. However, when Buechele’s pass fell incomplete as time expired, the West Virginia defense had come up big yet again. Despite the three interceptions, Howard finished with 269 yards passing, while McKoy added 73 yards rushing and two scores. White totaled six catches for 82 yards and a touchdown, while Justin Arndt and David Long combined for 22 tackles on defense with each recording a sack. Texas was led by the rushing of star tailback D’Onta Foreman with 167 yards. Buechele finished with 318 yards passing, and Dorian Leonard led all receivers with seven catches for 125 yards. The Longhorn defense was led by Edwin Freeman with eight stops. Final totals heavily favored Texas. West Virginia rushed for 114 yards and passed for 269 to total 383 yards of offense. Texas, behind Foreman’s rushing numbers, finished with 218 yards on the ground and 318 passing for 536 yards of total offense. Several long drives in the game enabled the Longhorns to run 100 offensive plays compared to West Virginia’s 73, which resulted in a time of possession advantage for the Longhorns of 33:42 to 26:18. The win was West Virginia’s second straight over Texas and gives the Mountaineers a 4-2 all-time lead in the series and a 3-2 mark vs. the Longhorns in all-time Big 12 play. The Mountaineers are now 3-1 all-time in Austin and 2-1 on the road vs. the Longhorns under Dana Holgorsen.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Nov. 19, 2016) A cold, snowy November evening was the setting at Milan Puskar Stadium as No. 8/8 Oklahoma defeated No. 10/9 West Virginia, 56-28, in front of 57,645 fans. It was the first matchup of two Top 10 ranked teams in Morgantown since 1993, and it was Oklahoma that handled the weather conditions and the football better. Four West Virginia turnovers resulted in 21 points for the Sooners, who jumped out to a 34-0 first-half lead and never looked back. The loss overshadowed an impressive performance from West Virginia tailback Justin Crawford, who rushed for a career-high 331 yards on 24 carries. He sprung for runs of 36, 36, 45, 45, and 61 yards on his way to the third-best rushing performance in Mountaineer football history. Oklahoma countered with the strong running of Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon, combining for 307 yards and three touchdowns in the Sooner victory. West Virginia forced an Oklahoma punt on the game’s opening possession, but when the Mountaineers mishandled it, the Sooners recovered at the WVU 34-yard line. Six plays later, it was Perine who opened up the scoring with a two-yard run and a 7-0 OU lead. OU struck again on its next possession, when quarterback Baker Mayfield hit receiver Dede Westbrook with a short pass that turned into a 75-yard touchdown, giving OU a 14-0 lead with 9:16 left in the opening quarter. Another West Virginia punt set up the Sooners next score as they traveled 78 yards in nine plays and grabbed a 21-0 advantage on Mayfield’s five-yard scoring toss to Jeffery Mead. A 25-yard

completion to Westbrook and a 20-yard run by Mixon were the key plays in the drive. The Mountaineers got their running game going in the second quarter, and used runs of 29 and 36 yards by Crawford to reach the Sooner 11-yard line before a fumble killed the drive. Oklahoma marched 96 yards in eight plays and took a 28-0 lead when Mixon scored from five-yards out. Mixon had runs of 20, 13 and five yards to carry the load in the drive. West Virginia went back on the offensive again on its next possession, using a 61-yard run by Crawford to reach the Oklahoma three-yard line. However a fumbled snap ended this drive, and the Sooners made WVU pay for the miscue. This time a 97-yard scoring drive allowed the Sooners to jump out to a 34-0 advantage as Perine scored on a nine-yard rush. After the missed OU extra point, West Virginia finally punched in its first score just before halftime as quarterback Skyler Howard connected with Jovon Durante for a 20-yard pass play. Trailing 34-7, West Virginia took the third quarter’s opening drive all the way down to the OU 27 before the Sooners’ Jordan Evans intercepted a Howard fourthdown pass and returned it 80 yards for a 41-7 Sooner lead. To West Virginia’s credit, the Mountaineers kept fighting and after two punts, went on the offensive again before the end of the third quarter. Crawford broke loose for a 45-yard run, and Howard rushed in from six-yards out to cut the deficit to 41-14 with 2:36 left in the third. On the next drive, Howard hit receiver Shelton Gibson for a 61-yard completion to set up the quarterback’s nine-yard rushing touchdown, putting the score at, 41-21, with 14:25 left in the game. After forcing another Sooner punt, West Virginia closed the gap to 41-28 when Howard hit Ka’Raun White for a 37-yard scoring pass. The drive covered 85 yards in just 2:32. West Virginia seemed to have the momentum with plenty of game left, but when the Sooner offense needed to come up big, it did. Mayfield engineered a 5:27 drive that ended with his one-yard run and extended the OU advantage to 49-28. From there, Oklahoma closed the game with another Mayfield touchdown run that was set up by a 21-yard carry from Perine, and the Sooners left chilly Morgantown with the 28-point victory. Besides Crawford’s strong night, in which he averaged 13.8-yards per carry, top West Virginia performances came from Howard, who threw for two scores and ran for two more. Al-Rasheed Benton and Darrien Howard combined for 24 tackles to pace the defense. Oklahoma’s offensive numbers saw Perine with 160 rushing yards and two scores, Mixon with 147 yards and one touchdown and Mayfeild with two passing touchdowns and two rushing to match Howard’s totals. The Sooner defense was led by Emmanuel Beal with eight stops. Final numbers showed West Virginia clearly in the lead, but turnovers definitely took a toll. The Mountaineers rushed for 388 yards and passed for 191 to total 579 yards. The Sooners collected 316 yards on the ground and 169 through the air for 485 total yards. As strong as the tandem of Perine and Mixon was, WVU’s Crawford outrushed the duo’s combined efforts by 24 yards. With the victory, Oklahoma has now won five straight against the Mountaineers, leading 5-0 in all-time Big 12 play.

AMES, Iowa (Nov. 26, 2016) - West Virginia took advantage of Iowa State mistakes to chalk up its third straight victory over the Cyclones, 49-19, on Thanksgiving weekend at Jack Trice Stadium. The Mountaineers scored 21 points off Iowa State turnovers, and made the Cyclones pay even more by scoring seven points off an unsuccessful onside kick in the first quarter and another 14 points from stopping ISU on two first-half fourth down plays from near midfield. Between turnovers and missed ISU opportunities, the Mountaineers pounced for 35 points to break open the game. Quarterback Skyler Howard threw for five touchdown passes, including a 71-yard scoring play to Shelton Gibson in the third quarter, which was WVU’s longest play from scrimmage of the season. The performance marked Howard’s third career game of throwing five touchdown passes. Injuries to three tailbacks forced the WVU coaching staff to burn the redshirt of Martell Pettaway, and the true freshman running back responded with 181 yards rushing, one score and a 6.0 yards per carry average. Iowa State started the scoring with a 40-yard Cole Netten field goal at the 11:18 mark of the first quarter. When the Cyclones failed on a surprise onside kick, West Virginia started its second drive of the game at the ISU 49-yard line. It didn’t take long to take advantage of the great field position as Howard connected with Ka’Raun White for a 34-yard scoring completion and a 7-3 Mountaineer lead. West Virginia upped its lead to 14-3, when linebacker Justin Arndt recovered a Mike Warren fumble on a fourth-down try. A

50-yard completion from Howard to Shelton Gibson set up Kennedy McKoy’s three-yard run with 4:56 left. Iowa State ignited the home faithful by following up with a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown from Kene Nwangwu, putting the score at 14-10. Before the first quarter ended, the Cyclones added a 28-yard Netten field goal, putting their deficit at 14-13 heading to the second quarter. Howard found receiver Marcus Simms for a 48yard touchdown strike after the WVU defense held the Cyclones on another fourth-down attempt. The catch was Simms’ first career touchdown. Before the half ended, Netten added his third field goal, this one from 32 yards, to put the halftime score at 21-16 in favor of West Virginia. Key for the Mountaineers was the play of the defense. Even though the Cyclones totaled 263 yards of offense in the first half, the defense held Iowa State to three field goals. The strong play from the WVU defense would continue in the second half. Iowa State took the first possession of the third quarter only 19 yards before Howard went to the air again and found Gibson for the 71-yard touchdown catch and a 28-16 Mountaineer lead. Iowa State scored its final points in the contest at the 8:50 mark of the third, when Netten connected on a 31-yard field goal attempt, giving him four on the day. With West Virginia leading 28-19, a 38-yard run by Howard set up the next score. Pettaway accounted for 36 more yards and ended the 86-yard drive with a fouryard scoring run for his first career touchdown. Another Iowa State fumble put West Virginia back on offense, and the Mountaineers first score of the fourth quarter was a 40-yard touchdown strike from Howard to Gibson, making it 42-19. West Virginia closed the scoring at the 10:14 mark of the the fourth, when Howard found tight end Trevon Wesco for a six-yard scoring reception. The score was not only Wesco’s first career catch, but his first career touchdown. To go with his five touchdown passes, Howard totaled 330 yards passing with 161 of those yards going to Gibson. Rasul Douglas turned in his fourth straight game with an interception and led the team with nine tackles. The pick was Douglas’ eighth interception of the season and good enough for the No. 1 spot nationally and in the Big 12. Iowa State quarterback Jacob Park finished with 371 yards passing on 23 completions. Running back David Montgomery led the Cyclone rushing attack with 141 yards, while Allen Lazard hauled in four catches for 103 yards. The Iowa State defensive effort was paced by Kane Seeley with 11 tackles and two TFL. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 272 yards rushing and 341 passing for an impressive 613 yards of total offense. Of WVU’s seven scoring drives, three went for more than 80 yards (80, 86, 88) and another went for 61 yards. The Cyclones rushed for 190 yards and passed for 371 to total a strong 561 yards of offense. However, it was the Mountaineer defense that bent but did not break, holding the hosts to four field goals and no offensive touchdowns. The win improved West Virginia’s record to 9-2 overall and 6-2 in the Big 12. The nine wins marked the 18th time in school history that football has achieved at least a nine-win season. Iowa State finished its 2016 campaign, its first under head coach Matt Campbell, at 3-9.

MORGANTOWN, W.VA. (Dec. 3, 2016) - West Virginia sent off 21 seniors victorious in their final home game at Milan Puskar Stadium by defeating Baylor, 24-21, on a chilly December afternoon in Morgantown. Both teams seemed to struggle a bit in the early going with the wind and temperatures. However, it was the running of junior tailback Justin Crawford that ignited the Mountaineer offense as he rushed for 209 yards on 28 carries for a 7.5 yards per rush average. It marked the second time in 2016 that Crawford rushed for more than 200 yards in a game, becoming the first Mountaineer since 2006 to pull off the feat twice in a season. The Mountaineer defense had a good day against the potent Baylor offense, holding the Bears scoreless in two of the four quarters, while coming up with two interceptions and four sacks. The opening quarter almost went scoreless until West Virginia broke through at the 2:23 mark with a 50-yard Mike Molina field goal. It was Molina’s longest field goal of his career, and gave the Mountaineers a 3-0 advantage. The Bears came roaring back in the second quarter, scoring the game’s next 14 points. Running back Terence Williams cashed in on a nine-yard run for the game’s first touchdown. Williams’ score finished off a 75-yard drive, on which he also accounted for a 48-yard run earlier in the possession. Two drives later, Baylor upped its lead when quarterback Zach Smith completed a 60-yard touchdown reception to receiver KD Cannon. The drive covered 71 yards

in two plays with Smith also connecting on an 11-yard pass play to Williams before the scoring play. The Mountaineers badly needed a spark and got it on their next possession in the form of Daikiel Shorts Jr.’s impressive touchdown catch in the back of the end zone. With half his body leaning out of bounds, Shorts got the tip of his toe down for the score, cutting Baylor’s edge to 14-10. The overall scoring drive also was impressive for West Virginia as it methodically covered 78 yards in 15 plays, with the longest play covering 10 yards. Trailing 14-10 entering the third quarter, the West Virginia defense kept the Mountaineers in the game until the offense got on track. Crawford turned in the season’s longest run of 63 yards, but a missed field goal provided no points in that possession. Finally, West Virginia took its first lead in the game with 1:58 left in the third quarter, when senior quarterback Skyler Howard went deep and connected on a 58-yard touchdown strike to Gary Jennings for a 17-14 West Virginia advantage. The 80-yard scoring drive proved to be West Virginia’s longest of the game. The Mountaineers then made Baylor pay for a late third-quarter fumble by Smith on BU’s 12-yard line. Marvin Gross Jr. forced the fumble and Darrien Howard recovered. Four plays later, and the first of the fourth quarter, Howard rushed in from one yard, giving West Virginia what seemed to be a commanding 24-14 lead with 14:57 left in the game. The Mountaineer defense held Baylor on its next two possessions, but the Bears answered the Howard score with 2:39 left in the game, when Smith connected with receiver Ishmael Zamora for a 43-yard touchdown reception, putting the score at 24-21 in favor of West Virginia. Baylor’s onside kick was recovered by the Mountaineers, but they were unable to run out the clock, giving Baylor one last possession to tie or win the game. Any hopes Baylor had ended four plays later, when West Virginia’s defensive end Noble Nwachukwu sacked Smith and forced a fumble that Darrien Howard recovered to end the threat. Aside from the strong running from Crawford, West Virginia got 63 yards rushing from true freshman Martell Pettaway, while Howard accounted for two touchdowns passing and one rushing. West Virginia’s defensive effort was led by senior linebacker Justin Arndt with nine stops. Baylor’s rushing attack was led by Williams with 90 yards, followed by JaMycal Hasty with 76. Smith totaled 244 yards passing and two touchdowns. Zamora accounted for eight catches for 102 yards, followed by Cannon with five receptions for 84. Baylor’s defense was paced by Taylor Young and Travon Blanchard with 15 tackles each, followed by Orion Stewart with 11 stops. Final numbers showed West Virginia with an impressive 311 yards rushing and 111 passing to total 422 yards of offense. Baylor finished the game at 196 yards on the ground and 244 through the air for 440 total yards. With the win, West Virginia recorded its 10th win of the season, marking just the ninth time in the program’s 125-year history that it has won 10 games. West Virginia’s seven Big 12 Conference wins were also the most for the Mountaineers in the school’s five years in the league. The victory gave the Mountaineers a 3-2 all-time series lead against Baylor, and kept the Bears winless all-time at Milan Puskar Stadium.

ORLANDO, Fla. (Dec. 28, 2016) - No. 14/12 West Virginia jumped out to a 7-0 first-quarter lead, but could not overcome Miami’s stingy defense and streaky offense in falling to the Hurricanes, 31-14, in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Miami’s defense kept the West Virginia running game in check, and made it difficult for quarterback Skyler Howard to get anything going in the passing game. While West Virginia’s defense also started strong, it could not contain the hot passing of Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya, who got in a rhythm midway through the second quarter to break open a close game. Kaaya ended up completing 24of-34 passes for 282 yards and four touchdowns. It was his three touchdown passes in a span of 6:30 in the second quarter that turned the game and set the tone for the second half. The game’s scoring started on the West Virginia side of the scoreboard with 5:40 left in the first quarter. Howard engineered a four-play, 39-yard drive that ended with a six-yard run from tailback Kennedy McKoy for a 7-0 lead. The advantage held for the rest of the quarter as the Mountaineer defense held Miami to just 19 first-quarter yards and only 12 plays. Conversely, West Virginia collected 87 total yards in the first quarter but could not capitalize on any more scoring due in part to a Miami defense that was starting to assert itself. West Virginia’s defense continued to dominate the Hurricanes until the 6:40 mark of the second quarter when Kaaya connected with Ahmmon Richards for a 51-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 7-7.

A three-and-out gave the ball back to Miami, and Kaaya started to get into rhythm and led a sixplay, 59-yard scoring drive. It was Kaaya’s three-yard scoring toss to Malcom Lewis that put the Hurricanes up 14-7, and they never looked back. After trailing for most of the first half, Miami took a 21-7 lead into the locker room at halftime. Gifted with another three-and-out by his defense, Kaaya marched the ‘Canes 70 yards in just 0:52 to grab the 14-point advantage. Miami had the first possession of the third quarter, and it was vital that West Virginia come up with a stop on the drive. The Mountaineers seemingly did by intercepting Kaaya, but the pick was nullified by a pass interference call. That was the break the ‘Canes needed, and they finished the eight-play, 75-yard drive, and took a 28-7 lead, as Kaaya connected with tight end David Njoku for a 23-yard touchdown pass. West Virginia did answer the score on its first possession of the second half. Howard led a nineplay 75-yard drive and pulled the Mountaineers to within 14 points at 28-14 when he rushed in from four-yards out for West Virginia’s second score of the game. Big plays in the drive included completions to receivers Shelton Gibson of 15 yards, Jovon Durante for 13 and Daikiel Shorts Jr. for 26 yards. West Virginia was not able to capitalize on the momentum though, and Miami’s offense went to work again. Kaaya completed four of five passes in leading the Hurricanes on a 47-yard drive that ended with a 30-yard field goal by kicker Michael Badgley with 4:26 left in the third. The field goal put Miami up 31-14 and ended the scoring for both teams. Fourth-quarter action saw Miami use a heavy rushing attack to run time off the clock, while the Hurricane defense continued to keep the Mountaineer offense off the board. West Virginia did manage a lengthy nine-play drive in the fourth quarter, but it ended on downs at midfield. Howard finished with 134 yards passing, 43 rushing and one touchdown in his final game as a starter. During his career, he led West Virginia to a 19-9 record as the starting quarterback. Shorts led the receivers with 61 yards on five catches. The Mountaineer defense was led by linebacker David Long with 11 tackles and one TFL. Fellow linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton added 10 tackles and one TFL to the totals. Aside from Kaaya’s strong night, Miami got 52 yards rushing from running back Mark Walton. Stacy Coley and Njoku grabbed five catches, while Njoku, Braxton Berrios, Richards and Lewis had touchdown catches in the victory. The Hurricane defense was led by Corn Elder with seven stops, while Jamal Carter, Rayshawn Jenkins and Zach McCloud each finished with six tackles. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 95 yards rushing and 134 passing for 229 yards of offense. Miami’s final numbers came in at 81 yards rushing and 282 passing for 363 yards of total offense. With the loss, the Mountaineers dropped to 0-4 in the Russell Athletic Bowl and 15-20 overall in bowl games. West Virginia finished the season at 10-3, while Miami finished at 9-4.

West Virginia in the Rankings

Since the Associated Press football poll was established in 1936, West Virginia football and the national rankings have evolved into a regular pairing. Beginning with Pappy Lewis’ magnificent 1953 team that finished No. 10 in the nation and played in the 1954 Sugar Bowl, 19 Mountaineer teams have finished the season rated among the nation’s best by either AP, United Press International or USA Today. The Associated Press rankings began in 1936, United Press International in 1950 and ESPN/USA Today in 1982.

GENERAL Information President E. Gordon Gee..................204 Director of Athletics Shane Lyons..... 205

WVU Intercollegiate Athletics............206 Media Information.............................208


E.GORDONGee PRESIDENT

J.D, ED.D

Dr. E. Gordon Gee is one of America’s most prominent higher education leaders, having served as president of some of the most prestigious public and private universities for more than three decades. When he returned to lead West Virginia University in 2014 as the institution’s 24th president, it was a homecoming of sorts. He was first named WVU president in 1981 at age 36 – at the time, among the youngest persons to ever serve as a university president. He led WVU until 1985 when he went on to presidencies at the University of Colorado (1985-90), Brown University (1998-2000) and Vanderbilt University (2001-07). He served as president of The Ohio State University from 1990-97 and again from 2007-13. On his return to the Morgantown campus, he said, “This is not a job to me; it is a calling.” His leadership style bears that out as he works tirelessly to advance the University’s land-grant mission and open doors to the American dream. In his latest address to the University community, he noted that for 150 years, the institution has been a polar star guiding West Virginians toward a brighter tomorrow. He said, “That is why, in this milestone year, we recommit our University to living the values that drive our work. Serving our students and our state is not just our duty — it is our passion.” Gee has built a special relationship with the students as well as the state’s citizens, making it a point to visit students where they live, learn and socialize -- and visiting all 55 West Virginia counties during his inaugural year -- and at least half in subsequent years. Born in Vernal, Utah, Gee graduated from the University of Utah with an honors degree in history and earned his J.D. and Ed.D. degrees from Columbia University. He clerked under Chief Justice David T. Lewis of the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals before being named a judicial fellow and staff assistant to the U.S. Supreme Court. In this role, he worked for Chief Justice Warren Burger on administrative and legal problems of the Court and federal judiciary. Gee returned to Utah as an associate professor and associate dean in the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University, and was granted full professorship in 1978. One year later, he became dean of the WVU College of Law, and, in 1981, was named WVU’s 19th president. Gee has served on several education-governance organizations and committees, including the Big 12 Conference Council of Presidents, the Business Higher Education Forum and the American Association of Universities. He was chair of the American Council on Education’s Commission on Higher Education Attainment and served as co-chair of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities’ Energy Advisory Committee. In 2009, King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia invited him to join its international advisory board. In 2009, Time magazine named him one of the top 10 university presidents in the United States. Gee is serving as chair of the Big 12 Board of Directors Executive Committee for the 2017-18 year. Active in many national professional and service organizations, he is on the executive committee of the National 4-H Council Board of Trustees and serves on the board of directors of the American Council on Education, the nation’s largest higher education organization, as well as on the board of trustees of the Royal University for Women in Bahrain, with which WVU has a long-standing academic partnership. A recipient of the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award, he is an executive board member of Boy Scouts of America. He has also served on the boards for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Limited Brands.

204

In 2011, Gee began serving as secretary on the Board of Directors of Ohio’s economic development program, JobsOhio. In 2011-12, Governor John Kasich asked him to chair the Ohio Higher Education Capital Funding Collaborative and the Ohio Higher Education Funding Commission. In December 2012, he began serving on the Columbus Education Commission. Gee has received many honorary degrees, awards, fellowships and recognitions. He is a fellow of the prestigious American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest science organization. In 1994, Gee received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the University of Utah, as well as from Teachers College of Columbia University. In 2013, he received the ACE Council of Fellows/Fidelity Investments Mentor Award and the Outstanding Academic Leader of the Year Award on behalf of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. He is the co-author of 11 books, including Law, Policy and Higher Education, published in 2012. He has also authored many papers and articles on law and education. In the summer of 2016, Gee announced his engagement to Laurie Erickson, leader of the Erickson Foundation. Gee’s daughter, Rebekah, is Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health. In addition to that role, she is a practicing gynecologist and Gratis Faculty at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. Dr. Rebekah Gee is married to David Patrón and they have five children.

SHANELyons DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS AND ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT

The 2017-18 season is Shane Lyons’ third full year as director of athletics at West Virginia University. If the next year is anything like the previous two, the Mountaineer athletics story will be full of positive results and continued success. In year two, Lyons put the finishing touches, to rave reviews, on $23 million in renovations to the WVU Coliseum, while $50 million in renovations and fan enhancements to Milan Puskar Stadium finished in August 2017. Lyons is always on the go, focusing his energy daily on the betterment of more than 500 student-athletes. His open lines of communications have made him a popular role model for WVU athletes, and his honest, fair and caring approach has energized an athletic department that turned in record results in 2017. Under Lyons’ leadership, 2017 was one of the best in WVU history. Six teams were nationally ranked, football turned in a 10-win season, women’s soccer played for the national championship and had the Hermann Trophy winner, men’s basketball reached the Sweet 16, women’s basketball won the Big 12 championship and rifle won its 19th national championship. Overall, the Mountaineers registered in 24 All-Americans, 104 all-conference performers, 20 academic award winners, 121 academic all-conference selections, 10 Olympians, one Olympic gold medalist and two silver medalists. Overseeing 18 varsity sports, a self-sustaining department budget of more than $90 million and more than 200 employees, Lyons’ tireless efforts in the coming year will be geared toward getting started on a new $45 million aquatic and track center in Morgantown, and a continued focus, on the growth and cultivation of the more than $23 million in fundraising efforts brought in by the Mountaineer Athletic Club. He will also direct phase two of the Coliseum renovations, which will bring the building up to ADA seating code, and for the first-time ever, Milan Puskar Stadium will have two video boards to improve in fan entertainment and information. While some outside observers may think that he is a behind-the-scenes guy, the people who count will tell you that Lyons is a results-oriented leader who has his finger on the pulse and is a positive influence on the entire department. His work with WVU President E. Gordon Gee’s senior leadership team, as well as the Big 12 Conference and other national committees has brought additional respect and positive exposure to his department and the University. He currently serves on the Big 12 Administration Committee, Finance and Budget Committee and the Game Management and Officiating Subcommittee. Also in 2017-18, Lyons will chair the overall athletic directors committee for the Big 12. Lyons came to West Virginia after spending three years as the deputy director of athletics and chief operating officer at Alabama where he worked closely on dayto-day strategic leadership and direction of the Crimson Tide Athletic program. During his time at Alabama, his responsibilities included oversight of a $120 million budget, management of the day-to-day operations of the department and oversight of the Crimson Tide’s 21 sports teams. In addition, he played a pivotal role in a historic renegotiation of Alabama’s multimedia rights agreement that started in 2014 and was involved in several significant capital projects totaling more than $85 million. The Crimson Tide won seven national titles in five different sports during his time there – two in football, two in men’s golf, one in women’s golf, one in gymnastics and one in softball. He also played a critical role in the hiring of four Alabama head coaches. Prior to joining the Alabama staff in November 2011, Lyons spent 10 years as an associate commissioner at the Atlantic Coast Conference. At the ACC, Lyons focused on conference-wide compliance and academic initiatives, providing direct assistance to the conference’s presidents, chancellors and athletics directors in matters dealing with NCAA regulatory matters. In addition, he served as the ACC’s human resource manager and was responsible for the administration, negotiation and mediation of the employee benefits program and managing the conference’s organizational policies and procedures. He was part of the senior administrative team for ACC events, including the football championship game, the men’s basketball tournament and men’s and women’s NCAA basketball events. Prior to working at the ACC, Lyons served as associate athletics director for compliance at Big 12 member Texas Tech from 1998 to 2001. During that time, Lyons assumed responsibility for the leadership, administration and implementation

of a comprehensive NCAA compliance program with emphasis toward rules education and extensive monitoring systems. He also served as oversight administrator for several of the Red Raiders’ athletic teams and had financial and operational supervision of the strength and conditioning, nutritional and sports medicine units. Before joining Texas Tech, Lyons worked at the NCAA for almost 10 years as a senior membership services representative, where he was responsible for the oversight and coordination of the 25 membership service representatives. Lyons began his career in college athletics in July 1988 as assistant commissioner of the Big South Conference. With the Big South, he was in charge of conference-wide compliance and championships. A native of Parkersburg, West Virginia, and a graduate of Parkersburg High, Lyons was a standout basketball player for the Big Reds. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in sport management from WVU in 1987 and 1988, respectively. Lyons, the University’s 12th athletic director, and his wife, Emily, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, have two children: Cameron and Brooke.

MEDIAInformation

Following are some guidelines for covering the 2017 Mountaineers. Credentials: All requests for working press, photo and broadcast credentials to cover West Virginia’s 2017 home football games must be applied for online at http://www.sportssystems.com/westvirginia at least two weeks prior to the game. Requests submitted the week of the game only will be honored if space permits.

Michael Fragale Senior Associate Athletic Director/Communications

Mike Montoro Director of Football Communications (primary contact)

Due to the demand for working credentials, media regularly assigned to cover WVU and the visiting school will receive priority.

No children (under the age of 16) are allowed on the sidelines for any reason; any children on the sidelines will be removed, along with their guardians. Any abuse of a working credential to West Virginia football games can result in the media agency losing credential privileges for the remainder of 2017 and possibly the entire 2018 home season.
