West Virginia keeps up quick strikes
By Brian Bennett
PITTSBURGH -- West Virginia has had three scoring drives against Pittsburgh. They have taken a total of seven plays.
The Mountaineers just scored on the third snap from scrimmage in the second half as Geno Smith found a streaking Tavon Austin for a 71-yard touchdown pass. West Virginia had only 75 total yards in the first half as a team.
Was that score, which made it 21-7, the dagger? The Mountaineers have not allowed more than 21 points per game all year. The momentum is all on the visitors' side, and everyone in Connecticut is pretty happy about that right now.
