This week, wide receiver Kevin White and defensive lineman Noble Nwachukwu earned those honors after their performances against the Terrapins.

White continued his great start to his senior season by leading a dangerous West Virginia aerial attack to one of the best performances it has had in school history. The 6-foot-3 senior caught 13 balls for 216 yards and a touchdown.

His 216 yards were the third-most all-time by a Mountaineer receiver in school history.

Through the first three games of the season, White has caught 32 passes for 460 yards and two touchdowns.

Nwachukwu made several plays during the win Saturday, and he finished with three tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss and half a sack. The sophomore Wylie, Texas, native also broke up a pass.

Nwachukwu has nine tackles for the season and has hit the quarterback twice.
