"I think I only had one bad read, when I missed Miquelle (Henderson) down the sideline," Marshall said afterward. "Of course, I don't think coach Rod will think I missed just one read."
Marshall was also a threat running the ball, twice ripping off big gains on quarterback draws in long yardage situations. The second went for a 17 yard touchdown that gave WVU an early 14-0 lead. The WVU senior totalled 65 yards on just nine carries.
Defensively, it was the flamboyant Adam Jones that carried the day to earn our player of the game honors.
Jones added two punt returns for 75 yards and two kickoff returns for 35 more, putting him over the centry mark. He nearly broke both punt returns, and admitted that he "ran out of gas" on the second. That return, however, went for 47 yards and positioned the Mountaineers for Brad Cooper's 54-yard field goal, which gave them a commanding lead with 11:18 to go in the game.
