LANDOVER, Md. (Sept. 3, 2017) West Virginia and Virginia Tech renewed an old border rivalry that hadn’t been played in 12 years, and the result was a classic football game to start the 2017 season. Playing in front of 67,489 fans at Washington’s FedExField, the barnburner came down to the last play of the game before the No. 21/22 Hokies defeated the No. 22/20 Mountaineers 31-24. The game marked the debut of new quarterbacks for both teams as West Virginia’s Will Grier made his debut in the Gold and Blue and finished with 371 yards passing and three touchdowns. Virginia Tech’s Josh Jackson passed for 235 yards and rushed for 101 to total 336 yards of total offense in his Hokie debut. The preseason rankings pretty much had the two teams even and that’s basically how the game was played. In the end, despite being outgained by more the 120 yards, Virginia Tech made one more big play to catapult it to victory and retained the coveted Black Diamond Trophy. After trading possessions, Virginia Tech got the scoring started at the 6:10 mark of the first quarter, when kicker Joey Slye hit a field goal from 25 yards out. The kick ended a 12-play, 58-yard drive for the Hokies. The 3-0 Hokie advantage lasted until the 5:37 point of the second quarter, when the Mountaineers took their first and only lead in the game. Grier capped a 10-play, 86-yard drive with an 11-yard touchdown pass to receiver David Sills V for a 7-3 West Virginia advantage. The lead held until just before halftime as Jackson gave the Hokies a 10-7 lead, with only :27 left, with his five-yard scoring rush. The Mountaineers tied the game at 10-10 with 11:25 left in the third quarter on Mike Molina’s 34-yard field goal. The field goal started a scoring plethora for both teams, combining for 24 points in the quarter. Virginia Tech answered the Molina field goal on its next possession. The

Hokies marched 71 yards in 1:28 and took a 17-10 advantage on Deshawn McClease’s 12-yard run. McClease accounted for 26 yards rushing in the drive and the big play in the series came on a 39-yard completion from Jackson to receiver Chris Cunningham. West Virginia answered the score to tie the game at 17-17 with 2:18 left in the quarter, when Sills hauled in his second scoring pass of the game on a 10-yard strike from Grier. to end an 89-yard drive in eight plays. Unfortunately for West Virginia, the tie game did not last long. It took the Hokies just one play to answer the Sills score with a 32-yard pass from Jackson to Cam Phillips. The score was set up by a 44-yard kickoff return by James Clark. With 2:02 remaining in the third quarter, Virginia Tech held a 24-17 lead in the 52nd meeting between the two old rivals. West Virginia was far from done and tied the score with 12:37 left on Grier’s 60-yard scoring toss to Gary Jennings Jr. The two teams then traded possessions in the fourth quarter before Virginia Tech embarked on the game-winning drive at the 8:53 mark. The Hokies marched 82 yards in six plays to take a 31-24 lead on Travon McMillian’s three-yard rush with 6:30 left on the clock. The score was setup by big back-to-back plays in the drive. The first was a Jackson pass completion to Sean Savoy for 22 yards, followed by Jackson’s 46-yard run to the West Virginia two-yard line. The Mountaineers could not score on their next possession, but had new life when Slye missed a 32yard field goal that would have put the game out of reach. With 1:55 left, the Mountaineers had one last offensive possession. Starting from its own 20, West Virginia ran 14 plays and reached the Hokie 15-yard line as the last two plays in the drive settled the outcome. A Grier to Sills pass came up just short in the end zone as Tech forced a hurried throw before the final play ended on an offensive holding call to give the victory to Virginia Tech. Aside from Grier’s strong numbers, tailback Justin Crawford rushed for 106 yards on 13 carries, averaging 8.2 yards per rush. Three WVU receivers were basically unstoppable for the Hokie defenders all night: Jennings caught 13 passes for 189 yards and one score; Sills finished with nine receptions for 94 yards and two scores, while Ka’Raun White added four catches for 74 yards. Linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton and newcomer Hakeem Bailey had eight tackles each for the Mountaineer defense. Beside Jackson, who led the Tech rushing and passing games, receiver Phillips caught seven passes for 138 yards and one score. Linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka topped the Hokie defensive effort with 12 tackles and one sack. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 221 yards rushing and 371 passing for 592 yards of offense. Virginia Tech totaled 234 yards on the ground and 235 through the air for a balanced 469 yards of total offense. The Hokie win put the rivalry at 28-23-1 in favor of West Virginia, and gave Virginia Tech a three-game winning streak in border showdown.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Sept. 9, 2017) - West Virginia scored early and often in its home opener, routing ECU, 56-20, in front of 56,797 fans at Milan Puskar Stadium. Highlights on the day included five touchdown passes from West Virginia quarterback Will Grier; three of them went to receiver David Sills V. In just his second start, Grier became the 11th quarterback in school history to throw for five touchdowns in a game. Tailback Justin Crawford added 118 yards rushing and two scores, while safety Kyzir White collected two interceptions on defense. West Virginia’s offense was quick striking and put up 56 points in 18 minutes of play, averaging nearly five yards per rush and 17 yards per catch. The Mountaineers scored on their first five possessions and six of their first eight. The Mountaineers needed to get their first win of the season in the books, and wasted little time getting down to business. WVU started the game with a nine-play, 75-yard drive,giving WVU a 7-0 lead on Crawford’s five-yard carry. The Pirate offense probably turned in its best drive in the game on its first possession. The visitors drove 70 yards in 15 plays and got on the scoreboard with a 23-yard Jake Verity field goal, cutting WVU’s lead to 7-3. But the Pirates would not light up the board for the rest of the first half as the Mountaineers scored the next 42 points to break open the game. On WVU’s second possession, receiver Ka’Raun White caught a 7-yard scoring toss from Grier for a 14-3 lead, ending a 71-yard drive. The big play was a 38-yard pass completion to receiver Gary Jennings Jr. West Virginia got the ball back with 1:49 left in the first quarter and struck 45 seconds later. A 40-yard completion to Sills V set up a 13-yard touchdown run by tailback Kennedy McCoy, and the home team took a 21-3 lead into the second quarter.

The Mountaineers’ first offensive possession in the second came at the 12:53 mark, where they embarked on an 81-yard drive and scored on the sixth play with a 52-yard touchdown strike from Grier to Marcus Simms. The score was Simms’ second career touchdown and provided a glimpse of a potential deep strike threat for the rest of the season. On ECU’s first play of the ensuing drive, White stepped in front of a Thomas Sirk pass to give the defense its first turnover of the season. The WVU offense took advantage of the good field possession given by White’s interception on the ECU 31-yard line. In three plays, West Virginia grabbed a 35-3 lead as Grier found Sills V in the corner of the end zone for a 9-yard toss. Yet another three-and-out turned in by the Mountaineer defense enabled the offense to get into scoring position once again, but a missed field goal by Mike Molina ended the scoring streak at five possessions. The Mountaineers scored two more times before the half to take a commanding, 49-3 advantage into the locker room. Crawford rambled for a 41-yard carry for the game’s next score and a 42-3 Mountaineer lead. In the 63-yard scoring drive, Crawford accounted for all but two yards. West Virginia closed the first half scoring with :30 seconds left as White’s second interception gave the WVU offense the ball one more time. Two plays later, West Virginia’s sixth touchdown in the half gave the Mountaineers their most points scored in a half since 2012. Crawford’s rush for 11 yards set up Grier’s 75-yard scoring strike to Sills. ECU responded from the halftime break by scoring 10 points in the third quarter and seven in the fourth to outscore WVU 17-7 in the second half. On its first possession of the third, Verity connected on his second field goal in the game, this one from 45 yards to end the 42-point unanswered run by the Mountaineers. The Pirates scored their first touchdown with 7:55 left in the third, when Sirk connected with Jimmy Williams for a 19-yard scoring toss. The scoring drive covered 79 yards. West Virginia’s only points of the second half came just 1:53 after the ECU score. Sills caught his third touchdown reception on a 4-yard pass from Grier for a 56-13 West Virginia lead heading to the fourth quarter. The Pirates closed the game’s scoring with a bang as Trevon Brown got behind a second-string Mountaineer secondary and turned in a 95-yard touchdown reception, putting the final score at 56-20. Sills V finished with 153 yards receiving and Grier’s final passing numbers ended at 352 yards in just three quarters of play. Al-Rasheed Benton topped the defense with eight tackles. ECU’s Thomas Dye rushed for 71 yards, while Sirk passed for 191 yards. The Pirate defense was led by Jordan Williams with 11 tackles. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 211 yards rushing and 403 passing for a strong 614 yards of total offense. ECU’s final numbers stood at 142 rushing and 328 passing for 470 yards of offense. With the win, West Virginia improved to 19-3 all-time against ECU and 14-0 against the Pirates in Morgantown.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Sept. 16, 2017) - West Virginia gained victory No. 2 of the 2017 season with a 59-16 nonconference victory over Delaware State. The Mountaineers wasted little time in jumping to a big lead on the Hornets, holding a 45-10 lead at halftime. The longest first half scoring drive for West Virginia totaled 2:39 to go with scoring times of 1:18, 1:17, :56, :53, :38 and nine seconds. Mountaineer quarterback Will Grier threw for more than 300 yards for the third game in a row and has thrown 11 touchdowns after three games. That mark just missed the school record held by Geno Smith, who threw 12 scoring passes in three games in 2012. Running back Justin Crawford rushed for more than 100 yards for the third game in a row and collected his first three touchdown game as he and Grier led the Mountaineer attack. Crawford got the scoring started just 53 seconds into the game with a twoyard run. The scoring drive was set up by an 80-yard kickoff return by Marcus Simms, which marked the 25th longest kick return in school history. Delaware State shocked the Milan Puskar Stadium crowd of 51,482 at the 12:02 mark of the first quarter as quarterback Jack McDaniels dumped a short pass out of the backfield to tailback Nyfease West, who then raced 81 yards for the Hornets’ first score. West Virginia scored the next 10 points to take a 17-7 advantage with 8:41 left in the quarter. A Mike Molina 20-yard field goal ended a 62-yard drive, giving WVU a 10-7 advantage, before Xavier Preston recovered a Hornet fumble on the ensuing kickoff to set up WVU’s next score. Crawford scored his second touchdown at the 8:41 mark with a 3-yard run to put the home team up by 10. Delaware State took advantage of a Grier fumble and added a 24-yard field goal by Wisdom Nzidee to cut the Hornet

deficit to seven at 17-10 with 4:35 remaining in the opening quarter. However, those three points would be the last scored by Delaware State until late in the fourth quarter as West Virginia would score 42 unanswered points. The final score in the first quarter came just 15 seconds after Delaware State cut its deficit to seven as Grier went deep on WVU’s next play from scrimmage, finding Marcus Simms for a 62-yard touchdown reception, putting the Mountaineers up, 24-10. The second quarter saw the Mountaineers score 21 points to open up the 35-point lead at the half. Grier went to the air to find receiver Ka’Raun White for a 28-yard touchdown reception to end a 70-yard drive in just three plays. Simms added a 16-yard touchdown reception with 6:23 left in the first half to cap off a 69-yard scoring drive in five plays. The final points in the second quarter came with 50 seconds remaining, when Crawford scored touchdown No. 3 with a 9-yard scamper, set up by a 48-yard completion from Grier to Gary Jennings Jr. A big lead heading to the third quarter enabled West Virginia to rest its regulars in the second half and get plenty of players valuable playing time. West Virginia played more than 60 players and turned in its longest scoring drive in the third quarter. Marching 80 yards in 13 plays, the Mountaineers ran 4:10 off the clock and ended their run with 6:46 left in the quarter, when tailback Martell Pettaway closed the drive with a 12-yard run, putting WVU up 52-10. West Virginia’s final score came early in the fourth quarter at the 12:51 mark. Backup quarterback Chris Chugunov led the offense for the Pettaway scoring drive and got in on the action himself with his first touchdown reception of his career. Chugunov found Reggie Roberson Jr. for a twoyard scoring toss with 12:15 left in the contest. It was Roberson’s first career touchdown and closed the 46-yard drive in eight plays. With West Virginia up 59-10, Delaware State stopped the Mountaineer scoring run with 5:51 left. Keenan Black’s 8-yard strike to Kwannah Kollie ended an 82-yard drive in 10 plays and put the final score at 59-16. Grier finished with 304 passing yards and three scores. Crawford averaged 6.8 yards per carry as he managed 102 yards in limited action to go with his three touchdowns. Jennings Jr. topped the Mountaineer receivers with 128 yards on six catches, while linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton collected eight tackles, three TFLs and one sack. The Hornets were led by Brycen Alleyne with 65 yards rushing, while McDaniels finished with 114 yards passing and one touchdown pass. West topped the Hornet receivers with 108 yards. Defenders Brian Cavicante, Keyjuan Selby and Jahad Neibauer turned in six tackles each. Final totals showed West Virginia with 204 yards rushing and 334 passing to total 538 yards of total offense. Delaware State collected 161 yards on the ground and 140 yard through the air for 301 total yards. The win improved West Virginia to 18-0 all-time against schools on the FCS level and 7-0 under Dana Holgorsen.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (Sept. 23, 2017) West Virginia used explosive scoring in the second and fourth quarters to defeat Kansas, 56-34, in the Big 12 opener for both schools. The Mountaineers used 347 yards passing from quarterback Will Grier and 288 team rushing yards to post big offensive numbers in defeating the Jayhawks. Grier passed for more than 300 yards in his first four games as a Mountaineer and became just the second quarterback in school history to rush for two scores, pass for two and throw for more than 300 yards in the same game. Mike Sherwood last pulled off the feat in 1969. Grier led scoring drives of 80, 80, 86, 85, 86 and 72 yards to put up more than 50 points for the third straight contest. Kansas started the game with a 6:08 drive that went 64 yards in 14 plays. Despite controlling the ball, the Jayhawks could only manage a 28-yard Gabriel Rui field goal after the Mountaineer defense stiffened at the 11-yard line. It took the Mountaineer offense two possessions to get rolling, and tailback Justin Crawford got the running game going with 50 yards rushing in the 80-yard drive, giving West Virginia a lead it would never relinquish. Taking a 7-3 advantage into the second quarter, West Virginia put 28 points on the board in the quarter, outscoring Kansas 28-10. On the first drive, Grier connected with receiver David Sills V for completions of 26 and 24 yards before Crawford’s 11-yard rush gave the Mountaineers a 14-3 lead. McKoy’s 23-yard run extended the West Virginia lead to 21-3, capping off a 10-play, 86-yard drive. With 5:17 left in the first half, Grier connected on a 49-yard touchdown pass to Sills that ended an 85-yard drive, giving West Virginia a 28-3 advantage. Kansas ended the 28-point scoring run with an impressive play of its own when running back Khalil Herbert turned in a 67yard touchdown run to pull the Jayhawks to 28-10.

After the Jayhawk defense stopped the Mountaineer offense for the first time in five drives, KU quarterback Peyton Bender could not pull them any closer. Bender actually helped extend the West Virginia advantage with his interception to Mike Daniels Jr., who returned the errant throw 25 yards for a touchdown and a 35-10 West Virginia margin. The play was West Virginia’s first defensive score of the season and first since 2016. The Jayhawks put the halftime score at 35-13 as they marched 49 yards in :30 before Rui connected on a 41-yard field goal. The Mountaineers received the first possession of the third quarter and were forced to punt. Then the Kansas offense came alive, outscoring WVU 14-0 in the quarter. Herbert broke loose again for a 60-yard run before his 5-yard jaunt closed the deficit to 35-20. The 89-yard drive was Kansas’ longest of the game with Herbert accounting for 70 yards in the drive. With the WVU offense trying to find its rhythm, Kansas scored again with 3:22 left in the third on Taylor Martin’s 1-yard run. The big play in the drive was a 64-yard completion from Bender to Steven Sims to set up the score. Once leading 35-10, West Virginia gave up 17 unanswered points before responding and taking back control of the game in the fourth quarter. The Mountaineers outscored the Jayhawks, 21-7, in the final quarter and got back on track at the 11:02 mark with an 86-yard drive capped off with Grier’s second touchdown pass to Sills. Kansas answered the score with a Bender 7-yard touchdown pass to Sims, putting the score at 4234, before West Virginia closed the game with two touchdown drives. A 30-yard completion to Gary Jennings and a 24-yard completion to Marcus Simms were big plays before a 3-yard Grier run put the finishing touches on a 72-yard drive with 5:16 left. After recovering a Bender fumble at the KU 31, McKoy broke loose for a 28-yard run before Grier scored again from three-yards away for the 56-34 victory. Aside from Grier’s offensive numbers, Crawford rushed for 125 yards and one score, giving him four straight games of more than 100 yards rushing to start the season. McKoy added to the potent running game with 105 yards and two scores. Sills V led the Mountaineer receivers with 130 yards and two touchdowns on eight catches. Linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton was a one-man wrecking crew on defense with 12 tackles (11 solo), one TFL, one pass deflection and a 38-yard interception return. Herbert topped the Jayhawk offense with 291 yards rushing and two scores. The 291 yards was an opponent record against the Mountaineers, breaking a 17-year mark. Bender finished with 197 passing yards of which 96 went to Sims. The Kansas defense was led by Joe Dineen with 14 tackles, two TFLs and one sack. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 288 yards rushing, 347 passing to total 635 yards of offense. Kansas finished with 367 rushing yards and 197 passing to total 564 yards of offense. With the win, West Virginia improved to 2-1 all-time at Kansas and leads the all-time series against the Jayhawks by a 6-1 count. The Mountaineers improved to 5-1 vs. Kansas in all-time Big 12 play.

FORT WORTH, Texas (Oct. 7, 2017) - West Virginia erased second-half deficits of 14 and seven points. However, it was not enough as TCU claimed a 31-24 Big 12 victory at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Defense was the name of the game in the first half as the Horned Frogs took a 7-3 lead into the locker room at halftime. After one quarter of play, the Mountaineers held a 106-62 edge in total offense and took a 3-0 lead into the second quarter. Senior kicker Mike Molina gave the Mountaineers that lead at the 7:30 mark of the first, when he connected on a 37yard field goal to end a 14-play, 77-yard drive that consumed 5:22. The Horned Frogs took the lead at the 14:16 mark of the second on Sewo Olonilua’s 2-yard scoring jaunt. The points were set up by a Mountaineer fumbled punt return that put the Horned Frogs in business at the West Virginia 33-yard line. Entering the game, there was concern about the West Virginia defense and stopping the run. However, the Mountaineers saw the return of injured linebacker David Long Jr., as well as safeties Toyous Avery and Kyzir White, and played a strong first half. The Mountaineers held TCU to just 66 rushing yards in the first half and only 65 passing yards. After two quarters, West Virginia held a 236-131 advantage in total offense despite trailing 7-3. As well as both defenses played in the first half, one could sense that it was time for the offenses to come alive. The two teams combined for 31 points in the quarter with the Horned Frogs controlling the first part, and WVU responding later in the period. After forcing a WVU punt on the opening possession of the second half, TCU added a 37-yard field goal by Jonathan Song for a 10-3 advantage. The drive covered 59 yards in nine plays and was aided by a 27-yard run from tailback Kyle Hicks.

Just as the Horned Frogs capitalized on a fumbled punt in the first half, they once again made the Mountaineers pay for a turnover. Nick Orr intercepted Will Grier and returned 34 yards to set up the Horned Frogs at the WVU 45-yard line. TCU wasted no time in striking as on the first play, quarterback Kenny Hill went deep and connected on a 45-yard touchdown strike to Jalen Reagor for a 17-3 TCU lead with 6:06 left in the third. The game was close to getting out of hand with TCU taking control, bur Grier and the Mountaineer offense came alive at the right time. West Virginia responded with a 64-yard touchdown pass from Grier to David Sills V to stop the Horned Frog momentum and cut the WVU deficit to 17-10 with 3:52 remaining in the third. After a defensive stop, West Virginia went after the deficit once again and erased it in two plays, when Grier connected with receiver Ka’Raun White for a 76-yard touchdown reception. The catch was West Virginia’s longest play from scrimmage of the season and longest scoring play. With the score tied at 17-17, TCU took possession at the 1:37 mark of the third and used some trickery to regain the lead. The Horned Frogs went 75 yards in 1:22 and used a 48-yard reverse pass from KaVontae Turpin to Hill, giving TCU a 2417 lead heading into the fourth. West Virginia answered before and it would do so again with 9:50 left in the contest. Grier marched the Mountaineers 49 yards and found Sills on the drive’s 10th play for a 4-yard touchdown pass. A key play in the drive was a fourth-down completion to White for 11 yards. TCU then embarked on a 6:57 drive that ended with a 31-24 lead after Hill’s 3-yard rush. Key plays in the drive were a 23-yard completion to John Diarse and a WVU interception that was overturned by instant replay. The Mountaineers had one last chance, with 2:53 remaining, to force overtime, but when Grier’s 25-yard completion to Sills was negated by a questionable pass interference call, the drive stalled and TCU ran the clock out. Grier finished with 366 yards passing and three scores for his fifth consecutive game passing for more than 300 yards. Justin Crawford rushed for 111 yards on 19 carries, his fifth straight 100-yard rushing game. WVU had two receivers pass the 100-yard mark with White’s career-best 138 yards and Sills’ 116. Linebacker All-Rasheed Benton led the WVU defense with eight tackles and one TFL TCU was led by the 188 yards passing from Hill. Hicks finished with 71 yards rushing, and Diarse topped the Horned Frog receivers with four catches for 70 yards. Travin Howard led the defense with 12 tackles, followed by Orr with nine tackles and the one interception. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 142 yards rushing and 366 passing for 508 yards of total offense. TCU didn’t win the statistical battle as the Horned Frogs finished with 170 yards rushing and 236 passing for 406 yards of total offense. However, the Horned Frogs did make the Mountaineers pay from their two turnovers by scoring 14 points off those miscues. With the win, TCU takes a 4-3 advantage in the series against the Mountaineers.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Oct. 14, 2017) - West Virginia erased an 18-point third quarter deficit to defeat No. 24 Texas Tech, 46-35, in front of 60,928 fans on Homecoming at Milan Puskar Stadium. The 18-point comeback was the second-largest in Milan Puskar Stadium history, and was led by the passing of quarterback Will Grier. Posting his sixth straight game of passing for more than 300 yards, Grier connected on 32 of 41 passes and threw for five touchdowns for the second time in 2017. Four receivers combined for 29 of the completions as a stifled running attack forced the home team to resort to the passing game. However, it was the passing of Texas Tech that started the fireworks. On its second play from scrimmage, quarterback Nic Shimonek connected with T.J. Vasher for a 60-yard touchdown strike to stun the home crowd and give the Red Raiders a 7-0 lead. Coming into the game, everyone expected an offensive explosion and the two teams did not disappoint. It took West Virginia three plays to answer as David Sills V caught a 31-yard touchdown pass from Grier to tie the game with 12:07 left in the opening quarter. Texas Tech closed the quarter with a 7-3 scoring advantage, adding its second touchdown at the 7:58 mark, when Shimonek connected with Dylan Cantrell for a six-yard score. Before the quarter ended, WVU kicker Mike Molina converted on a season-long field goal of 43 yards, putting the score at 14-10 going into the second quarter. After missing a late first quarter field goal, Texas Tech would go on to score 14 points in the second but closed the half with a second missed field goal, giving the Red Raiders 28 first-half points. Shimonek used his arm to find Keke Coutee for a six-yard scoring reception at the 10:58 mark, before Vasher turned in another big play with a 53-yard

touchdown reception. Vasher had two catches in the first half for 113 yards and both were good for Red Raider touchdowns. West Virginia’s only score in the quarter came at the 7:44 mark to close out a 68-yard drive. Tailback Justin Crawford dashed in from five yards out for his lone score in the game. Leading 28-17 at the half, Texas Tech controlled the first two quarters by outgaining the Mountaineers 338-174 in total offense. The two missed field goals aided a Mountaineer defense that could not get off the field in the first half. Texas Tech opened up a 35-17 advantage at the 9:11 mark of the third quarter, when Tre King’s 30-yard run ended an 80-yard drive in five plays. But that score would be Tech’s final points as the Mountaineer defense rose to the occasion at the right time. Grier’s eight-yard touchdown pass to Sills with 4:57 left in the third cut the West Virginia deficit to 35-24 and ended a strong drive for the offense that marched 75 yards in eight plays. A third missed field goal by Texas Tech kicker Michael Barden was all the momentum the Mountaineers needed to finish the comeback and win the game by 11 points. Texas Tech controlled the game in the first half, but West Virginia outscored the Red Raiders 29-7 in the second half to grab the Big 12 conference victory. West Virginia moved to 35-32 with 13:03 left to play, when receiver Ka’Raun White made a leaping catch for a 32-yard score. With a successful two-point conversion, the Mountaineers found themselves down only three with plenty of time left. The WVU defense forced a key three-and-out, putting the ball back in the hands of the red hot Mountaineer offense. Six plays later, West Virginia had its first lead of the game on Grier’s 17-yard touchdown pass to White. Clearly both sides of the ball for West Virginia found its grove midway through the third quarter. When the WVU defense forced another three-andout, the offense finished the comeback and put the game away. Seven plays and 45-yards later, Sills hauled in touchdown number three on an 11-yard strike from Grier for an 11-point WVU advantage. The last big play was turned in by the Mountaineer defense as Kyzir White intercepted Shimonek with 1:49 remaining to end the last Red Raider drive. Aside from Grier’s big numbers, what a day it was for the White brothers. Ka’Raun finished with 114 yards receiving and two scores, while Kyzir totaled nine tackles and an interception. Sills’ three scores went with his 89 yards receiving and linebacker David Long added nine tackles. Texas Tech put up good numbers also and the predicted offensive shootout between the two teams did not disappoint. Shimonek passed for 323 yards and four scores to almost match Grier’s impressive numbers. Justin Stockton rushed for 96 yards and Cantrell and Coutee combined for 14 catches and 171 yards. Jah’shawn Johnson led the Red Raider defense with eight tackles. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 44 yards rushing and 352 passing for 396 yards of total offense. Texas Tech finished up with 190 yards rushing and 323 passing for 513 total yards. The two teams combined for 909 total yards, 55 first downs, 81 points and 25 penalties for 252 yards. With the win, West Virginia has now won four straight against Texas Tech and lead the all-time series by a 5-2 count.

WACO, Texas (Oct. 21, 2017) - West Virginia jumped out to a 25-point third quarter lead and then held off a furious Baylor comeback to defeat the Bears, 38-36, at McLane Stadium. Leading the way for the Mountaineers was Will Grier’s five passing touchdown performance. It marked the second straight game that he has thrown five touchdown passes in a game, and marked the first time in school history that the feat had been done. Once again Grier’s favorite target was receiver David Sills V, who finished with three touchdown receptions. He continues to lead the nation in that category. West Virginia controlled the game for three quarters, but did not finish strong in the fourth, allowing for the Baylor comeback. The Mountaineers took a 10-0 first quarter lead on a 27-yard Mike Molina field goal and a 35-yard touchdown strike from Grier to Sills V. Baylor bounced back in the second quarter with two Connor Martin field goals. The first was a 23-yarder at the 10:36 mark after a 4:53 drive. The second was a 42-yarder with 4:08 left in the half that ended a seven-play, 60-yard drive. It was quite evident that Baylor wanted to keep the Mountaineer offense off the field and put together long drives, while consuming chunks of time off the clock. Grier went to the air again and found Sills V for their second touchdown hookup. The 16-yard reception ended an 80-yard drive that saw 52 of the yards coming via the pass. Holding a 17-6 advantage at the half, the Mountaineers amassed almost 100 more yards of offense than Baylor, despite having the ball for almost five minutes less than the Bears. The WVU defense held Baylor to just to just five rushing yards. Having the first possession of the second half, the Mountaineers wasted no time finding the end zone. Set up

by a 45-yard kickoff return by Marcus Simms, Grier went to the air on the first play and found Sills for a 53-yard strike to open a 24-7 advantage. Baylor answered the score two drives later on John Lovett’s 7-yard run that was set up by a 56-yard completion from quarterback Zach Smith to receiver Gavin Holmes. Lovett’s run ended an 80-yard drive for the home team and put the score at 24-13 in favor of WVU with 7:39 left in the third. The Mountaineers added two more touchdowns to outscore Baylor 21-7 in the quarter. Grier found Simms for a 40-yard touchdown pass at the 6:00 mark to end a 75-yard drive. West Virginia’s final score gave it a 25-point advantage at 38-13, when Grier connected with receiver Ka’Raun White for a 6-yard scoring toss. The big play in the drive was a 51-yard pass completion from Grier to receiver Gary Jennings Jr. White’s touchdown put the finishing touches on a six-play, 80-yard drive. After three quarters, not only were the Mountaineers dominating the scoreboard but also the stats with 215 more yards of total offense, while holding the Bears to just six rushing yards. But the time of possession still favored Baylor. While West Virginia was scoring quickly, Baylor continued to try to keep the Mountaineer offense off the field with almost a six minute time of possession advantage. That stat would come into play in the fourth quarter as Baylor would wear down the Mountaineer defense by having 34 offensive plays compared to West Virginia’s nine. The Bears controlled the fourth quarter and outscored West Virginia 23-0 before the game was decided by a failed two-point conversion. Backup quarterback Charlie Brewer sparked a fourth quarter comeback starting with a 52-yard touchdown pass to Trestan Ebner. After recovering an onside kick, Ebner got into the scoring column again just two plays later on his 40-yard touchdown scamper to cut the Bear deficit to 38-27 with 13:50 left. While the WVU offense could not get going, the Baylor offense was controlling the game and turned in a 6:01 drive that resulted in a Martin 23-yard field goal, pulling the Bears to 38-30 with 6:01 left. Five plays and out for the Mountaineers gave the ball back to Baylor with 4:34 left, and the Bears would use all but 17 seconds. A 16-play drive ended with a Brewer 9-yard touchdown pass to Ebner, setting the stage for a two-point conversion attempt. When West Virginia’s Xavier Preston sacked Brewer on the conversion, and the Mountaineers recovered the ensuing onside kick, the game ended with Baylor controlling the clock for 13 minutes more than West Virginia, while running 16 more plays than the Mountaineers. Along with Grier and Sills, Jennings added 116 yards receiving and linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton topped the defense with eight tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 4.5 TFLs . Baylor got three second half touchdowns from Ebner and 132 receiving yards from Denzel Mims. Clay Johnston led the defense with seven stops. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 118 yards rushing and 375 passing to total 493 yards. Despite trailing in the total offense department badly for three quarters, Baylor’s fourth quarter gave it the edge in the game with 127 yards on the ground and 370 through the air for 497 total yards. With the win, West Virginia gained its first-ever win in Waco and now has won two straight in the series for a 4-2 all-time edge.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Oct. 28, 2017)- No. 12/11 Oklahoma State took advantage of five West Virginia turnovers to capture a 50-39 victory at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Mountaineers forced four turnovers of their own, but did not capitalize on them like the Cowboys did. Oklahoma State outscored West Virginia 28-7 in the points off turnover battle. The Cowboys also had the edge in total plays, 90-72, and possessed the ball 14 minutes longer than the Mountaineers. Oklahoma State took a 13-0 lead after the first quarter. Receiver James Washington hauled in a 13-yard pass from quarterback Mason Rudolph for the game’s first score at the 7:20 mark. Rudolph scored the game’s second touchdown on a 1-yard run with 1:02 left. The PAT was missed, but the Cowboys turned in 77 yards on the drive and held the ball for 5:14. Kicking for the injured Mike Molina, Evan Staley got West Virginia on the board early in the second quarter with a 23-yard field goal to mark the first threepointer of his career. The Cowboys answered with a 35yard Matt Ammendola field goal at the 7:56 mark. Even though the scoring drive only covered 57 yards, it still took 5:28 off the clock. A WVU fumble set up OSU’s next score as running back J.D. King scampered in from 20 yards out, giving the Cowboys a 23-3 advantage with 4:41 left in the half. After both teams traded possessions, West Virginia got the last drive of the half, which was important because the Mountaineers also got the ball first to start the third quarter. A score on this drive was vital to start any kind of a comeback. Tailback Kennedy McKoy delivered, rushing for 27 yards in the 60-yard scoring drive. A 36-yard completion from Will Grier to Ka’Raun White was the long play of the drive that ended with McKoy’s

1-yard rush, cutting the Oklahoma State advantage to 23-10 at halftime. Hoping to then capitalize on the first drive of the third quarter, West Virginia instead suffered an interception, setting up OSU at its own 39-yard line. Seven plays later, Rudolph completed a 6-yard scoring pass to J.D.King for a 30-10 OSU lead. Each team was held scoreless on their next three possessions until a WVU special teams play ignited the home faithful and turned the momentum. Aided by a 58-yard punt from Billy Kinney to set up poor field position for Oklahoma State, WVU’s Osman Kamara blocked Zach Sinor’s punt, which was recovered by Marvin Gross Jr. in the end zone for West Virginia’s second touchdown, cutting the margin to 30-17. The play was the first blocked punt for a touchdown by West Virginia since 2003. The next two offensive plays by Oklahoma State brought the Mountaineers even closer. A rush for no gain and a Rudolph interception to Kenny Robinson for a 39-yard return for a touchdown brought the Mountaineers to within 30-24 with 3:01 left in the third. Another defensive stop set up the Mountaineers at the 2:25 mark, but when WVU could not score on the possession, six points would be as close as they would come as the Cowboys outscored them 20-15 in the fourth quarter. Taking advantage of a blocked punt by its special teams, Oklahoma State opened up a 37-24 lead on Hill’s 5-yard touchdown rush with 10:38 left in the game. After a fourth Cowboy interception of Grier, Rudolph delivered a 19-yard scoring strike to Washington for his second score in the game, giving the Cowboys a 43-24 advantage. To its credit, West Virginia would not go away and continued to make things uncomfortable for Oklahoma State, when Grier connected on a 68-yard touchdown pass to receiver Marcus Simms with 7:32 left. The score once again put WVU within range at 43-31. But Rudolph engineered a seven-play, 57-yard drive in 3:45 to give the Cowboys a 50-31 advantage. Justice Hill’s 18-yard touchdown run sealed the game for Oklahoma State. West Virginia did manage one more touchdown late, when Grier connected with White for a 9-yard scoring toss with 1:22 left to cap a 75-yard possession for the Mountaineers. Rudolph finished with 216 yards passing and three scores, while King rushed for 142 yards. Along with his two scores, Washington led all receivers with 91 yards, and Ramon Richards and Justin Phillips topped the Cowboy defense with six tackles each. Grier finished with 285 yards passing and two touchdowns. Linebacker David Long Jr. turned in a great performance for the Mountaineer defense with his 18 tackles (14 solo) and a school-record seven TFLs. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 62 yards rushing and 285 passing for 347 yards of offense. Oklahoma State finished with 246 yards on the ground and another 216 through the air for 462 yards of total offense. While Oklahoma State managed 8-of-18 on third-down conversions, West Virginia struggled going 2-of-15 on third down. The win gave Oklahoma State a 5-4 advantage in the all-time series against the Mountaineers. In Big 12 play, the Cowboys hold a 4-2 series lead.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.(Nov. 4, 2017) - West Virginia defeated a ranked opponent for the second time in 2017 with a 20-16 victory over No. 14/16 Iowa State. West Virginia used the home field advantage for both of its victories over ranked opponents, defeating Iowa State with a strong first half offensive performance along with inspired defensive play to grab win No. 6 on the season. The Mountaineers wasted little time getting on the scoreboard. With Iowa State’s decision to defer, West Virginia took the game’s opening drive 75 yards in just four plays. Facing a third-and-8, quarterback Will Grier connected with receiver Ka’Raun White for a 63-yard completion to extend the drive. Grier hit receiver David Sills V on the next play for a 10-yard scoring reception and a 7-0 WVU lead. On Iowa State’s first offensive possession, West Virginia linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton intercepted Cyclone quarterback Kyle Kempt to set up the Mountaineers’ next score. Starting at the Iowa State 48-yard line, Grier moved the offense 37 yards and backup kicker Evan Staley converted a 28-yard field goal for a 10-0 West Virginia advantage with 9:55 left in the first quarter. The Mountaineer defense held the Cyclones scoreless on their next three possessions in the quarter, allowing WVU to take the 10-point advantage into the second stanza. West Virginia got the ball first to start the quarter and Grier struck again with the long ball to White. Grier’s 55-yard touchdown pass to White capped off an impressive 94-yard drive, giving the home team a 17-0 lead. After a three-and-out was turned in by the WVU defense, the Mountaineer offense went to work once again and increased the lead to 20-0 on Staley’s second field goal of the game.

The running of tailback Justin Crawford accounted for 31 yards in the 50-yard drive, ending with Staley’s 36-yard field goal. The Cyclones started their next drive with 6:13 remaining in the second quarter. Landen Akers 32yard kickoff return set up the Cyclones in good field position and they capitalized on it. The Cyclones marched 42 yards and got on the board with 1:38 left, when kicker Garrett Owens converted on a 42-yard field goal. However, Iowa State left the Mountaineers with enough time, and Grier moved the offense 64 yards down to the Iowa State 17, setting up a 34-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds. The three points could have nullified the Iowa State field goal and allow West Virginia to regain a 20-point advantage, but Staley missed, putting the halftime score at 20-3 in favor of West Virginia. The first half was controlled by the Mountaineers with 42 offensive plays to 27 and 365 yards of total offense to just 112 for the Cyclones. As much as West Virginia dominated the first 30 minutes of action, Iowa State set out to dominate the second 30 minutes in a game of two halves. The Cyclones did exactly what they needed to do with the opening drive of the third quarter. Kempt marched the Cyclones 86 yards in 10 plays to score their first touchdown in the game on his 1-yard strike to All-Big 12 receiver Allen Lazard. Kempt’s 25-yard completion to Hakeen Butler and running back David Montgomery’s 15-yard run were key plays in the drive. Leading 20-10 at the 10:41 mark of the third quarter, the Mountaineer offense tried desperately to get things started again, but Iowa State allowed a few big plays before basically shutting down and closing the door on WVU. After a strong first half, no one expected the Mountaineers to go scoreless in the final two quarters, but they did. Meanwhile, the game was on the shoulders of the Mountaineer defense, and while the unit with four starters out with injuries bent at times, it did not break. The Cyclones added an 18-yard field goal later in the third as the WVU defense held at the 2-yard line. Three ISU possessions in the fourth quarter netted only three points from a 24-yard Owens field goal. The WVU defense came through with big plays when needed to keep the Cyclones off the board and preserve the victory. Grier completed 20-of-25 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns. Crawford got back on track running the ball with 102 yards, while White had a career-high 167 yards receiving with catches of 63, 55, 16 and 33 yards. Hakeem Bailey topped the defensive effort with a career-high 10 solo tackles. Iowa State was led by the rushing of tailback David Montgomery with 115 yards. Kempt finished with 249 yards passing, while D’Andre Payne and Marcel Spears combined for 17 tackles. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 208 yards rushing and 316 passing for 524 yards of offense. Iowa State turned in 101 yards on the ground and 249 through the air for 350 total yards. With the win, West Virginia became bowl eligible for the fourth straight year and 17th in the last 18 seasons. The Mountaineers took a 5-1 lead in the alltime series against Iowa State, including 2-1 all-time at Milan Puskar Stadium.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (Nov. 11, 2017) - West Virginia used a strong defensive performance to overcome four first-half turnovers and defeat Kansas State, 28-23, in front of 51,233 fans on a rainy afternoon at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The Mountaineers held the Wildcats to just three points off of the four turnovers and gained their first-ever win at Kansas State. It was the Wildcats that started the scoring in the first quarter after taking advantage of an interception by D.J. Reed. Kicker Matthew McCrane converted a 21-yard field goal for the 3-0 K-State lead. Starting at the West Virginia 3-yard line following the interception return, the Wildcat drive ended with minus one yard on three plays. Kansas State added a second McCrane field goal at the 2:39 mark of the first quarter. The 43-yarder ended a 3:45 drive. While the West Virginia defense was keeping the Wildcats at bay, the Mountaineer offense started to click. West Virginia took a lead it would never relinquish at the 2:27 mark, when quarterback Will Grier found receiver Ka’Raun White for a 75-yard bomb. The one-play drive consumed 12 seconds off the clock. On its next possession, at the start of the second quarter, West Virginia upped its advantage as Grier connected with receiver David Sills V on a 16-yard scoring reception. The drive covered 72 yards with 59 of them coming from catches by Sills. Kansas State answered the two West Virginia scores with a five-play, 63-yard drive and closed the deficit to 14-13, when Winston Dimel powered in from 1-yard out. Running back Dalvin Warmack contributed runs of 22 and 21 yards in the drive to set up Dimel’s score. West Virginia raised its advantage to 21-13 with 7:22 left in the half, when Grier connected with Sills for their second touchdown hookup of the game.

Sills V made a spectacular four-yard diving catch in the corner of the end zone, while dragging his right foot for the score. A Grier 43-yard completion to receiver Gary Jennings Jr. was the big play in the drive. Without a doubt the second quarter provided the key scoring moments in the game as West Virginia outscored Kansas State 21-14. For its second touchdown in the quarter, Kansas State took advantage of a 41-yard Warmack run, setting up Dimel’s 2-yard scoring run. On both K-State touchdown drives in the quarter, the Warmack and Dimel running combination produced big plays and positive results. After both teams traded possessions in the final two minutes of the half, it looked like West Virginia would take a 21-20 lead into the locker room, before defensive end Ezekiel Rose collected his first career interception, giving WVU the ball on the K-State 30yard line with just 10 seconds left in the half. Eluding three Wildcat defenders, Grier scrambled long enough to find White in the corner of the end zone for a 30-yard touchdown pass with no time left, giving the Mountaineers a 28-20 advantage at the half. The score was key as West Virginia got the ball to start the third quarter, but the Mountaineers could not capitalize on the possession. After a combined 35-point second quarter, both teams went scoreless in the third after a rare McCrane field goal miss at the 3:45 mark. Even more rare was a Mountaineer offense that scored 28 points in the first half and going scoreless for the entire second half. Leading 28-20 going to the fourth, the game rested on the shoulders of the Mountaineer defense. Three Kansas State offensive possessions resulted in just three points, when McCrane connected on a 39-yard field goal with 12:35 left. As it did to start the game, the Mountaineer defense held and came up with sacks, tackles for loss and a 37-yard interception return by defensive back Kenny Robinson to preserve the victory. Grier finished with 372 yards passing and four touchdowns. White had a career high 168 yards receiving with two touchdowns and was joined by Jennings Jr. with 115 yards, giving the Mountaineers two 100-yard receivers. Jennings Jr. tied a career high and led all receivers with 13 catches. White also teamed up with Sills V to give WVU two receivers with two touchdown receptions. Tailback Justin Crawford broke through with 113 yards rushing, while linebacker David Long Jr. led the defensive attack with 11 tackles, two TFLs and one sack. Kansas State was led by Warmack’s 96 yards rushing, while quarterback Skylar Thompson completed 13 passes for 159 yards. Kendall Adams paced the defense with 11 stops followed by Jayd Kirby with nine tackles and one sack. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 120 yards rushing and 372 passing for 492 yards of offense. The Wildcats finished with 173 yards on the ground and 159 through the air for 332 total yards. Despite not scoring in the second half, West Virginia’s 28 points were the most scored by the Mountaineers against Kansas State in the eightgame series. The win gave WVU a two-game winning streak against the Wildcats and leaves only Oklahoma as the only stadium in which the Mountaineers have not garnered a Big 12 road victory.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Nov. 18, 2017) - Texas broke a two-game losing streak to West Virginia with a 28-14 victory at Milan Puskar Stadium. The game changed dramatically, when West Virginia starting quarterback Will Grier was injured on WVU’s third possession. With the game scoreless, Grier injured a finger on his throwing hand while diving for the end zone pylon. Not only was Grier not awarded a touchdown, but he never returned as the injury proved to be game-ending. Going into the game, Grier was No. 2 nationally in passing, No. 3 in points responsible for, No. 4 in passing yards and No. 5 in total offense. The loss of the Davey O’Brien Award semifinalist was huge for the West Virginia offense, and the Mountaineers never recovered. With Grier injured, the reins of the Mountaineer offense were turned over to backup Chris Chugunov, who lacked playing experience, but turned in a solid performance, completing 14-of-26 passes for 189 yards and one touchdown. Texas opened the scoring at 10:48 of the second quarter, when freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger connected with Kendall Moore for a 4-yard touchdown pass. The drive covered 91 yards in 11 plays and took 5:32 off the clock. The Texas defense continued to stifle the Mountaineer offense, and the Longhorns upped their lead to 14-0 with 2:23 remaining before the half, when Ehlinger connected with Chris Warren for a 20-yard touchdown pass, ending an 87-yard drive in 5:14. Halftime numbers showed just how much the Mountaineers missed Grier as Texas held a 250-127 total offense advantage, and possessed the ball more than five minutes. No question Texas held the statistics advantage, but the Mountaineer defense performed well enough to keep it a twoscore game midway through the third quarter before taking matters into their own hands.

West Virginia true freshman defensive back Kenny Robinson intercepted Ehlinger at the Mountaineer 6-yard line and returned the turnover 94 yards for a touchdown at the 5:29 mark. Robinson’s return was the longest defensive play of the season and fourth-longest in school history. It also marked his second interception return for a score in 2017. In one play, the complexion of the game changed from Texas solidly in control, to now a 14-7 game and renewed enthusiasm on the West Virginia sideline. After both teams traded possessions, the Longhorn running game got in on the action, contributing all 46 yards for a 21-7 Texas lead on Kyle Porter’s 10-yard run with 1:16 left. West Virginia answered two possessions later, when Chugunov engineered his first scoring drive of the game. Completing key passes of 13 yards to David Sills V and 30 yards to Ka’Raun White, Chugunov made good on a fourth-and-5 play, when he hit White for a 12-yard score, ending a 76-yard drive in eight plays. Once again, while it seemed as if Texas dominated all day, West Virginia found itself down only one score with 8:59 left to play. An onside kick failed, but did not harm as the Mountaineer defense turned in a stop, setting up the WVU offense with 7:26 left. Five plays later, the Longhorns turned in a play that sealed the game. Gary Johnson sacked Chugunov, forcing a fumble that was recovered by teammate Chris Nelson at the WVU 6-yard line. It took just two plays, a Daniel Young 5-yard run and his 1-yard carry to open up a 28-14 Longhorn advantage with 5:07 left to play. When the Texas defense held, giving the ball back to its offense with 2:31 left, the Longhorns ran out the clock and gained their first victory over West Virginia since 2014. Aside from Chugunov, West Virginia received good offensive numbers from receiver Gary Jennings, who caught 10 passes for 78 yards. Those numbers were good enough to put Jennings over the 1,000 yard receving mark for the year, making him the eighth Mountaineer to record 1,000-yards receiving in a season. Kyzir White, Al-Rasheed Benton and David Long Jr. each recorded 10 tackles to lead the Mountaineer defense. For Texas, Ehlinger finished with two touchdowns passing on 136 yards. Young led the Longhorn ground game with 85 yards, while 10 different receivers caught a pass. The Texas defense was paced by Davante Davis, Johnson and Malik Jefferson who turned in seven tackles each. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 56 yards rushing and 239 passing to total 295 yards of offense, which was its lowest output of the season. Texas’ final numbers showed the Longhorns with 233 yards on the ground and 187 through the air for 420 yards of offense. Other key statistics in the game included Texas with a 69-63 advantage in total plays, and a 32:34 to 27:26 margin in time of possession. The game was basically even in first downs with Texas taking an 18-17 edge, while the points off turnover battle was even at 7-7. West Virginia now leads the overall series with Texas by a 4-3 count, but the Longhorns hold a 2-1 advantage in Morgantown.

NORMAN, Okla. (Nov. 25, 2017) - Oklahoma, ranked No. 3/5, with the nation’s No. 1 ranked offense, used a 31-point second quarter to break the game open and defeat West Virginia, 59-31, in front of 86,117 fans at Memorial Stadium. The Mountaineers were playing without standout quarterback Will Grier, who injured his hand a week earlier against Texas. Backup quarterback Chris Chugunov performed well, but could not match the Sooner offensive explosion led by quarterback Baker Mayfield. Mayfield completed 14-of-17 passes for 281 yards and three touchdowns. His numbers were even more impressive, considering he missed his team’s opening drive for disciplinary measures, and was pulled from the game midway through the third quarter as OU held a big scoring advantage. West Virginia tried its best to keep Mayfield and the Oklahoma offense off the field and actually possessed the ball almost 14 minutes longer than the Sooners. However, without the talented Grier, the Mountaineers were fighting an uphill battle. Oklahoma showed just how explosive its offense can be on the game’s opening drive as the Sooners marched 70 yards in just two plays to take a 7-0 lead. Using a 66-yard Kyler Murray run and a 4-yard scamper by Rodney Anderson, the scoring drive took only 49 seconds. However, West Virginia answered with a nice scoring drive of its own. Using a season-high 7:03 off the clock, the Mountaineers drove 64 yards in 13 plays, scoring on Evan Staley’s 28-yard field goal. Oklahoma would go on to score on its next eight possessions, giving them nine straight scoring drives to start the game before a punt in the fourth quarter. The Sooners took a 14-3 lead at the end of the first quarter, when Cee Dee Lamb hauled in an 8-yard Baker Mayfield pass. The key play in the drive was a 58yard run by Anderson.

Oklahoma upped its lead to 21-3 at the 13:08 mark of the second quarter, when Anderson turned in a 13-yard scoring run. A 56-yard pass play kept the drive alive as the Sooners ended up marching 89 yards for the score. WVU’s lone score in the second quarter came at the 10:25 mark, when running back Kennedy McKoy scored from 1-yard away using the Wildcat formation. It was McKoy’s 36-yard run on the first play that provided the spark in the 75-yard drive. The Sooners scored the next 24 points in the quarter to take a 45-10 lead at the half. Anderson’s third touchdown of the game extended OU’s lead to 28-10 after his 17-yard run, before he found the end zone again for a 1-yard score, putting the Sooners up 35-10, with 3:35 left in the half. Mayfield’s 62-yard completion to Lamb set up the Anderson touchdown. Mayfield went to the air again to give OU a 42-10 lead, as he connected with Mark Andrews for a 14-yard scoring reception. The half came to an end, when Oklahoma kicker Austin Seibert converted a 51-yard field goal as time expired to take advantage of a WVU fumble. The Mountaineers started the third quarter with a 75-yard scoring drive as McKoy recorded the second of his three touchdowns with a 15-yard run. Oklahoma added the first of its two touchdowns in the quarter at the 10:13 mark, when Mayfield hit Grant Calcaterra for an 18-yard reception. The Mountaineers turned in their second straight scoring drive and found the end zone with 3:34 left in the quarter. McKoy’s 3-yard rush capped a 6:39 drive that traveled 75 yards. The Sooners closed their scoring in the quarter and the game at the 1:25 mark, when Murray threw a 46-yard touchdown pass to Myles Tease, putting the Oklahoma advantage at 59-24 heading to the fourth quarter. West Virginia scored the only points in the final quarter with 6:11 left. A 14-play, 72-yard drive consumed 6:11 and ended on running back Martell Pettaway’s 2-yard rush. Usually a fast scoring offense itself, West Virginia had two scoring drives of more than 6:00 and one over 7:00 in an effort to keep the Sooner offense off the field. McKoy used the newly installed Wildcat offense to his advantage, finishing with a career-high 137 yards and three touchdowns. Fellow running back Justin Crawford also ran strong, finishing his day with 97 yards rushing and eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing plateau for the second straight season. Receiver David Sills V finished with three catches for 77 yards, while Kyzir White led the defense with 10 tackles. McKoy’s three touchdowns were topped by OU’s Anderson, who finished with four scores and 118 yards rushing. Lamb topped the OU receivers with 92 yards on four catches, and Emmanuel Beal led the Sooner defensive effort with 11 tackles. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 250 yards rushing and 137 passing to total 387 yards of offense. Oklahoma totals came in at 313 rushing and 333 passing for 646 yards of offense. With the win, Oklahoma raised its overall series record to 8-2 against West Virginia and 6-0 as members of the Big 12 Conference. The Mountaineers finished the regular season at 7-5 overall and 5-4 in the Big 12. WVU will be headed to a bowl game for the 16th time in the last 18 years.

DALLAS, Texas (Dec. 26, 2017) - A depleted West Virginia squad could not keep up with Utah as the Utes controlled the game from the opening quarter en route to a 30-14 victory in the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl. The two teams met for just the second time in history, both bowl games, and the results in the two games were the same - a Utah victory. Before a crowd of 20,507 in the historic Cotton Bowl, the Mountaineers were just missing too much firepower to keep up with the Utes. WVU starting quarterback Will Grier missed his third straight game with a broken hand and dislocated finger, while the Mountaineers also were missing their starting tailback (Justin Crawford) and two offensive linemen (Kyle Bosch, Yodney Cajuste). Utah jumped out of the gates early and never let the Mountaineers find their rhythm. On its fourth play from scrimmage, Utah tailback Zack Moss rushed 58 yards for the game’s opening score and a 7-0 lead the Utes would never relinquish. Facing constant pressure on backup quarterback Chris Chugunov, the potent Mountaineer offense never got going, but did manage to score at the 13:09 mark of the second quarter. Evan Staley’s 28-yard field goal ended an 11-play, 67-yard drive and cut the Mountaineer deficit to 7-3. Big plays in the drive were a 33-yard completion to receiver Marcus Simms and a 19-yard reception by junior receiver Gary Jennings Jr. After the initial touchdown run by Moss, the Mountaineer defense tightened and kept the Utes out of the end zone. However, with the Mountaineer offense struggling, Utah eventually broke through and scored the final 10 points of the first half. Quarterback Tyler Huntley rushed in from 2-yards out to open up a 14-3 lead. The score was set up by a muffed punt by Simms at the 13-yard line. With the half closing, Utah kicker

Matt Gay converted on a 29-yard field goal, ending a 56-yard drive and putting the halftime score at 17-3 in favor of the Utes. Utah outgained the Mountaineers 229-81 in first-half total yards, which included a 112-13 rushing advantage. The Mountaineers got on the board for a second time with 6:43 left in the third, when Staley converted on a 26-yard field goal. The points were set up by the WVU special teams, which broke through to foil a punt attempt and force a fumble by Utah punter Mitch Wishnowsky. Behind the improved play from the defense, West Virginia found itself still in the game only down by 11 points in the middle of the third quarter. The unit blanked the Utes in the quarter to possibly set up a comeback in the fourth, but it was not meant to be. Utah eventually broke through to put the game away by outscoring the Mountaineers 13-8 in the fourth quarter. Huntley scored his second rushing touchdown in the game at the 13:54 mark, powering in from 2-yards away. After a Chugunov fumble at the WVU 17, the Mountaineer defense held, but Utah added a 26-yard field goal by Gay for a 27-6 advantage with 11:31 left to play. Two drives later, Utah’s Julian Blackmon intercepted Chugunov, setting the Utah offense up at the WVU 26. Eight plays later, the Utes closed their scoring with a 24-yard field goal by Gay, giving him three for the game, and upping the lead to 30-6. West Virginia managed its only touchdown drive with 1:58 left in the contest. A five-play, 67-yard scoring drive ended with Chugunov’s 18-yard scoring pass to receiver Ka’Raun White. Chugunov completed a 38-yard pass to Jennings to set up the score, and a successful two-point conversion put the score at 30-14. After recovering the ensuing onside kick, any hope of late game heroics and a comeback ended with 1:52 remaining as Blackmon intercepted Chugunov for a second time, which allowed the Utes to run out the clock. Chugunov finished with 129 yards passing and one touchdown, while tailback Kennedy McKoy totaled 31 yards rushing. Jennings Jr. finished with three catches for 66 yards, but WVU’s All-American wide receiver, David Sills V, was held without a catch. The West Virginia defense was led by safety Kyzir White with a career-high 13 tackles, one sack and 1.5 TFLs. Linebacker Al-Rasheed Benton added eight tackles to the effort, while linebacker David Long Jr. totaled six solo tackles, including three sacks. Utah’s Moss closed with 150 yards rushing after starting the game off with his 58-yard scoring run. Huntley passed for 165 yards, while receiver Darren Carrington was his favorite target with four catches for 62 yards. Fellow receiver Raelon Singleton added 52 receiver yards to the Utah totals. Defensively, the Utes got six tackles each from Donavan Thompson and Kavika Luafatasaga. Blackmon added two tackles to go along with his two interceptions. Final numbers showed West Virginia with 29 yards rushing and 124 passing for 153 yards of total offense. Utah came in at 197 yards on the ground and 165 through the air for 362 total yards. Utah managed 19 first downs to West Virginia’s six, and controlled the ball for 17 more minutes than the Mountaineers. Both teams concluded the 2017 season with 7-6 records, while West Virginia’s overall bowl record dipped to 15-21.

PRESIDENT

E.GORDON

GEE 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 West Virginia University 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 one of his latest addresses 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 is past chair of the American Council on Education’s Commission on Higher Education Attainment and formerly served as cochair of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities’ Energy Advisory Committee.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS AND ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT

SHANE

LYONS

In his fourth year as the director of athletics at West Virginia University, Shane Lyons has a clear vision for his athletic program. It’s a vision that focuses on the betterment of more than 500 student-athletes and the day-to-day needs that will help them succeed in the classroom and in competition. 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 entire department. Whether it’s regularly scheduled meetings with the student-athletes or his open-door office policy, Lyons has his finger on the pulse of his studentathletes, coaches and staff. His endless energy is devoted to his facilities master plan that will keep West Virginia a strong Power 5 institution and position his department for growth and continued success. Lyons’ facilities master plan isn’t about keeping up with the Joneses, it’s about taking what his department has, improving it and making it complete for the student-athlete. From training, nutrition, medical and competitiveness, Lyons’ vision is for future success, building winning programs and enhancing the overall WVU student-athlete experience. Lyons is about results, and he has already left a great deal of accomplishments in his rear view mirror. He spearheaded and finished more than $100 million in fan enhancements to Milan Puskar Stadium and the WVU Coliseum, broke ground on a $45 million aquatic and track center in Morgantown, completed phase two of Coliseum renovations, bringing the arena up to current ADA seating code, and for the firsttime ever, introduced a second video board to Milan Puskar Stadium to provide information and improve fan entertainment. Overseeing 18 varsity sports, a self-sustaining department budget of more than $93 million and 250 employees, Lyons’ leadership has also guided WVU to unparalleled success in the classroom as the department recorded an impressive overall 3.2 GPA in 2018. And, with the student-athlete in mind, he has implemented a Clinical and Sport Psychology unit with a full-time director and professional interns, added specialized learning assistants to the Student-Athlete Development unit and entered into a partnership with WVU Medicine’s Neuroscience Department to assist in the training and recovery of student-athletes, all emphasizing his overall commitment to the well-being and performance student-athletes. Ask him and he’ll tell you it’s not his department, but West Virginia’s department, and he can tell you his vision to improve it not only for the coming year, but for three, five, seven and 10 years down the road. He cares and the proof lies in what he has already accomplished in three years. Additionally, 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. In 2018, he chaired the overall athletic directors committee for the Big 12, was named again to the NCAA Division I Council and will serve as chair of the NCAA Division I Football Oversite Committee. He is also on the board of directors for Mylan Park in Morgantown. 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 day-to-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 rules and interpretations for the 25 membership service representatives and was the staff liaison to various NCAA standing committees. 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. Cameron is a member of Terry Bowden’s football team at Akron and Brooke plays volleyball at Morgantown High School.
