Your morning look back, around the headlines and into the future.
On This Date:
- West Virginia has an all-time record of 7-8-1. The most recent was a blowout loss to Maryland, 48-17 back in 2002. The Terrapins were led by former WVU quarterback Scott McBrien, who was run off the team by former coach Rich Rodriguez.
- In 1976, former defensive back and return man Nate Terry was born. In his two plus year career, Terry had 78 tackles, five interceptions, over 1,800 return yards and three touchdowns. He may be best remembered for his two picks in the fourth quarter of the revival of the series with Marshall in 1997, though. Down 31-28, he picked off a Chad Pennington pass, allowing WVU to take the lead. On the very next drive, he did the same thing and the Mountaineers came out victorious.
- In 2005, former linebacker J.T. Thomas committed to West Virginia. He finished his career with 235 tackles, 28 for loss, seven sacks, four forced fumbles and two interceptions. He currently suits up for the Chicago Bears.
