Morning Mashup - 11/6

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

On This Date:

- West Virginia has an all-time record of 13-3-2. The most memorable was likely a loss in 1999. No. 3 ranked Virginia Tech came to town, but the Mountaineers held a 20-19 lead with less than a minute left, thanks in large part to Avon Cobourne (157 total yards). However, a scramble from Michael Vick put the Hokies in field goal range for a last second escape.

- In 1970, former offensive tackle Rich Braham was born. By his senior season, the Morgantown native was a Second Team All-American on the 1993 Sugar Bowl squad. He then went on to a 13-year NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals.

- In 1964, former guard Vernon Odom was born. During four years at West Virginia, Odom played in 110 games and averaged 6.2 points per game.
