West Virginia Football

West Virginia Football, The West Virginia win over the Cincinnati Bearcats on Saturday was the type of win the team needed to stay in the race for the Big East title. Cincinnati maintains control of their own destiny, however, they will have to play the remainder of the season with their backup QB Munchie Legaux.
West Virginia has one of the more potent offenses in the country, and with two games remaining WVU has the opportunity to win the league. November 25, WVU will host hated rival the Pittsburgh Panthers, in what should be one of the last backyard brawls for the foreseeable future; followed by a game at South Florida.
Head coach Dana Holgorsen was very disappointed in his team leading up to the matchup against Cincinnati, saying that he only wanted to bring players that wanted to play with intensity. It is safe to say this method of motivation worked for the Mountaineers as they led for the majority of the game, and played very well yet again on offense.
The play of the game was in the closing moments of the contest when Eain Smith blocked the Cincinnati field goal attempt. WVU’s blocked kick was the first kick the team had blocked since 2004.
This type of play is the effort that is necessary to rally a team, and if WVU maintains this momentum, watch out.
Geno Smith is shaping up to be one of the elite QBs in the nation; however with the inconsistency of the West Virginia defense, some of his numbers have been overlooked.
