West Virginia opened up the second quarter much like they did the beginning of the football game, marching down the field and scoring. Quarterback Geno Smith opened the drive with back to back big gainers, with a 15-yard pass to Tavon Austin followed by an 18-yard pass to Andrew Buie. A few plays later Smith connected with Austin again for a 24-yard gain to the 5-yard line. Smith hit Stedman Bailey for the 5-yard touchdown pass, Smith's second of the day tying the game at 14 all.
The Mountaineers forced Louisville to a quick three-and-out to get the football back and begin driving right down the field. Once again on the arm of Geno Smith, WVU marched down the field thanks to 19-yard catch by Dustin Garrison and a 10-yard catch by Stedman Bailey that set WVU up on the 2-yard line. Two runs later, Shawne Alston ran the ball in from the 1-yard line to give the Mountaineers back the lead, 21-14.
The teams then traded punts and Louisville ended the half tying the game 21-21. Quarterback Tyler Bridgewater hit DeVante Parker for a 24-yard gain to get the drive started. Bridgewater hit on four of his next five passes, ending the drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers to end the half all tied up.
