While Saturday may not have been the best day for Mountaineers, today was quite different. Former Mountaineers Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey had a coming out party in Glendale, Arizona, which is something the West Virginia faithful have been waiting for the duo to do since they were drafted in 2013. The pair accounted for all three of the St. Louis Rams' touchdowns in their win over the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals.
To start the party off, Tavon caught a 12 yard pass on a crossing route in the first half, which was his first receiving touchdown of the season.

Stedman Bailey joined in on the fun in the 3rd quarter when he hauled in this nice over-the-shoulder, 18 yard pass.
