Saturday Post-Game Hangover: Backyard Brawl (11/27/10) Edition

Oh, what a glorious Black Friday that was!!  I would venture to say that was the most complete game by WVU's football team so far this year.  The offense struggled a bit at times, but came through in spades when needed.  Now we just need to take care of bizness next week against Rutgers and hope UConn falters either today against Cinci or next week against USF.  I've got as much post-game media coverage as I could find after the jump.  Also, there's a bit of BB news/previews inside too.

Texts from the Backyard Brawl WVU Sports with Mike Casazza
"That sound you just heard was a whistle blowing in Hartford and a flag hitting the turf in Tampa. I don’t want to say UConn has anything to worry about as far as objectivity is concerned for its next two games against Cincinnati and at USF… but Robert Sands and Chris Neild and some others who were involved in a certain play in a certain Ohio city last year may disagree."
