Post-Game Hangover: Bowling Green (10/2/11) Edition

Animated Drive Chart brought to you by Gameday Depot.


It was a cold, wet Saturday in Morgantown yesterday and after a slightly slow start, WVU pressed their foot on the gas pedal and Dustin Garrison responded, along with the defense.  In what many felt could have been a trap game with an emotional let-down after last weekend, the Mountaineers put together their most complete, balanced game of the season to date.  The 643 yards of offense were the most by a Mountaineer team since 2001 against Rutgers and the defense only allowed 217 total yards to go along with their 5 turnovers generated.  Plenty of articles/features, interviews and more await...

The Mountaineers also surged back atop the Big East, at least in regard to national respect. They will undoubtedly pass South Florida, which had been unbeaten and ranked higher but got blown out by Pittsburgh 44-17, in the polls.
