West Virginia fell behind 19-14 at halftime and that was the final score of Saturday’s game as the second half was a defensive struggle. Despite Noel Devine’s big day of 122 rushing yards, the Mountaineers fell a bit short and failed to score after two first-quarter touchdowns.
Even with the offense not effectively moving the ball, the Mountaineers had a chance to win it at the end. The team got down to the Syracuse 20-yard line with about a minute left, but Geno Smith was sacked and then threw an incompletion before being sacked again on fourth down.
Aaron will have more on the game later.
