WVU started strong and held on at the end (sorry for the lack of commentary, as I'm in a rush).  As much post-game media coverage I could dig up is after the jump.

Fear the turtle. More like fear the Mountaineers. In its first road game under first-year head coach Dana Holgorsen, No. 18 West Virginia rocked Maryland in the first half and held on for 37-31 victory on a day filled with more conference realignment talk.
