-Every other Big East team has won so far this week - most in cupcake games, sure, but South Florida knocked off Notre Dame as well. The Mountaineers won't want to be the team that breaks that streak.
-The Trib reports that WVU will be trying to avoid getting off to a sluggish start.
"Whoever we play, we want to get their best," Holgorsen said. "We have to prepare for them. It doesn't matter what the other team's record is or where they come from, but we want their best. We need to make sure our excitement level is high. It's part of the challenge of getting your guys ready to play every week."
The Mountaineers also aren't yet sure what to make of Marshall freshman quarterback Rakeem Cato, the Trib reports.
