2. Matt Grothe - On Saturday, Grothe showed the nation, once again, why he should be recognized as the best freshman quarterback in college football. For the game, Grothe completed 22-30 for 279 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. On the ground, he was the game's leading rusher with 23 carries for 73 yards and one score. On the opening drive, Grothe's was intercepted on only his second pass attempt after the ball was deflected at the line of scrimmage. His second pick came early in the second quarter on a deep pass that gave the Mountaineers the ball at their own eight yard line. Coincidently two plays later, George Selvie scooped up a Pat White fumble and scored from nine yards away to give the Bulls their first points of the day. On the Bulls' ensuing possession, Grothe led the team on a 10 play, 66 yard drive that concluded with a 10 yard rushing touchdown by Grothe to give the Bulls a 14-6 advantage. During the drive, Grothe had a key seven yard completion to Ean Randolph on fourth and one. This score was Grothe's ninth rushing touchdown of the year and tied a school record rushing touchdowns by quarterbacks held by Pat Julmiste and Marquel Blackwell. In the third quarter, Grothe would get his lone passing touchdown courtesy of a 21 yard catch a run by Ean Randolph.
3.Ean Randolph - Throughout the entire game, Randolph made every necessary catch and proved to be Grothe's number one guy. Randolph led the Bulls with seven receptions for 65 yards and one score. Late in the second quarter, the Bulls were in the middle of their longest drive of the quarter but hit a problem in the form of a fourth and one from the West Virginia 28 yard line. Ean Randolph was the answer though and made a nice move to get open and catch a seven yard pass for a first down. In the third quarter with the Bulls leading 14-12 and facing second and 11, Randolph made a short catch, but showed some nice footwork to break free and score from 21 yards away.
