West Virginia Steam Rolled UNLV, 49-10



West Virginia got off to a fast start scoring touchdowns on their first two possessions and did so in a scoring 'drives' of three plays and four plays each. Then lead a commanding lead 35-0 at the half, and was not really challenged at all in this game. Even though WR Phillip Payne was suspended by misusing twitter, he would not have made too much of a difference.

West Virginia used running back Noel Devine who played only a limited amount of time rushed for 84 yards on three carries, and two touchdowns. While quarteback Geno Smith was highly efficient by going 12-16, 220 yards, and three scores.

UNLV was clueless on defense and was getting abused play after play by anything that West Virginia threw their way. On Offense UNLV could not do much better as quarterback Omar Clayton was benched in favor Caleb Herring to begin the second half.

Herring had a decent showing, but he was able to lead the Rebels on their only touchdown of the day. He went 8-14 on 101 yards with a pick and that score. Herring will be the quarterback of the future and is a great fit for when head coach Bobby Hauck full converts from the spread to his pro-style offense, so it was good for Herring to see significant playing time against a good Big East team.

The only other positive was that the Rebel received a nice pay day for making the trip out East.
