Mountaineers Trailing Orange Heading Into 4th Quarter

Favored West Virginia is trailing at home against Syracuse in the fourth quarter, 19-14.

The Mountaineers have clearly looked like the best team in the conference, but are struggling mightily so far against the surprising Orange. Geno Smith has had his worst game of the year, throwing three interceptions, but RB Noel Devine have kept West Virginia in the game with 100+ rushing yards.

Syracuse’s passing game has been similarly awful, but its two-headed rushing attack of Delone Carter and Antwon Bailey has put up more than 150 yards.

The Orange are desperately trying to avoid a 1-2 conference start and are playing like it today.
