White's late TD knocks off Cards

After tying the game late at 31, sixth-ranked West Virginia knocked off Louisville 38-31 when quarterback Pat White ran 50 yards for the game-winning touchdown with 1:30 remaining in the game.

Pat White scored on a 50-yard run with 1:36 remaining to lift No. 6 West Virginia to a 38-31 victory over Louisville on Thursday night.

Brian Brohm brought Louisville from 17 points down in the second half, with the Cardinals tying it on Art Carmody's 37-yard field goal with 3:05 left. White, who had threw TD passes, then capped a 65-yard drive with his scoring run up the left sideline.

Brohm, who broke his own Big East record with his seventh 300-yard game of the season, threw a desperation pass that Antonio Lewis intercepted at the West Virginia 7.

Louisville (5-5, 2-3 Big East) was eliminated from the conference title chase. The Cardinals need a win either at South Florida or at home against Rutgers to become bowl eligible for a 10th straight season.

Brohm completed 27 of 46 passes for 345 yards.
