Sunday Post-Game Hangover: UNLV Edition

Welcome back Brad Starks!! OK, so it was only UNLV. Charley stated, WVU has been maddeningly playing to the level of competition and this was the first real indication of the proverbial "light coming on" with this team. This was also the highest point total put up by a HCBS team. And, a decent Wisconsin team didn't beat UNLV this bad (just food for thought). This game wasn't the Fiesta Bowl, by any means...but it was a nice start to get back there. Tomorrow starts USF prep on a short turnaround week, so there's not a lot of time to relish this victory. Post-game coverage galore is after the jump.
