Your morning look back, around the headlines and into the future.
On This Date:
- West Virginia has an all-time record of 9-6. The most memorable was the 1982 victory over Boston College, 20-13. The Mountaineers could only muster 225 yards on offense, but the defense shut down future Heisman Winner Doug Flutie. Flutie completed only 9-of-33 passes, had no touchdowns and was picked off four times.
- In 1980, former defensive lineman Osa Nosa was born. Nosa was one of the most highly-touted recruits in West Virginia history, but only played two seasons and recorded just four tackles and one sack.
- In 2010, West Virginia picked up commitments from both KJ Myers and Shaq Petteway. Myers redshirted his first year and recorded his first ever catch against Marshall - a three-yard touchdown. Petteway played as a true freshman recording only eight tackles. So far this year he has 13 tackles and 1.5 for loss through five games.
