A win for which conference?
Which program is the real prize?
West Virginia wasn't the only future Big 12 member (with Big East ties) to win a bowl. TCU won the Poinsettia Bowl and finished 11-2 in its final Mountain West season.
Is West Virginia a football power?
West Virginia is 70-20 since 2005 and nearly played for a national title one of those seasons. Throw in the glory days of Don Nehlen and Bobby Bowden's roots and what does it equal?
What about the team that gave up 70?
You know who loves Clemson right now? Washington, no longer on the hook for the sorriest defensive performance in a bowl this year.
