It wasn't pretty. But it was a win and Dana Holgersen and the West Virginia Mountaineers will gladly celebrate beating the alleged #4 team in the country.
West By-Gawd took down the Baylor Bears 41-27 in Morgantown Saturday in a game that featured 18-penalties against Baylor. The win threw the Big 9 (12) title race into chaos...
It also featured Mountaineer QB Clint Trickett recording his 8th straight 300-yard passing game, throwing for 322 yards and 3 TD's. Kevin White, who leads the nation in catches, caught 8 of those passes for 132 yards and 2 TD's.
As for the Bears, well, we picked this to happen.
Sure, Bryce Petty threw for 223 yards and 3 TD's, but Baylor's high-powered, nation leading offense was pretty much held in check by West Va.
Your highlights from FOXSports:
It should be noted in true West Virginia fashion, students ran on the field and continued the celebration late into the night. Rioting was reported all through the downtown area of Morgantown. According to reports, the students were setting fires, damaging street lights and various other properties and threw rocks, bottles and beer at police and firefighters called in to help calm them down.
