Morning Mashup - 11/27

Your morning look back, around the headlines and into the future.

On This Date:

- The football team has an all-time record of 9-1. In 1998, Marc Bulger threw for 409 yards and six touchdowns to lead West Virginia to a 52-14 win over Pitt. Khori Ivy (113 yards and 2 TDs) and Anthony Becht (115 and 1) were both favorite targets of Bulger, while Amos Zereoue ran for 110 yards on the ground.

- The basketball team has an all-time record of 10-1. In 2004, Tyrone Sally scored 22 points to lead five different Mountaineers in double figures in a 84-69 victory over LSU. Sharpshooter Patrick Beilein also knocked down six three-pointers in the game.

- Last year, running back prospect Roshard Burney committed to West Virginia. The three-star recruit eventually had to go the junior college route, but he maintains that he will one day suit up for the Mountaineers.
