Players of the Game - BC

In his final home game, WVU quarterback Rasheed Marshall put up more than 300 total yards in a losing effort against Boston College.

Marshall, playing for the last time at Mountaineer Field, completed 21 of 35 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown, and added 100 yards on 20 carries for another score against the Eagles. Battling through undeserved criticism from a number of fans, the classy senior never gave up as he led the Mountaineer comeback effort.

Marshall lowered his head and powered through Boston College defenders for WVU's first score of the day, which gave him the career touchdowns responsible for mark of 67.

Adam "PacMan" Jones earned our defensive player of the game honors for his performance on the stressed Mountaineer defense.

Jones led WVU, which was saddled with a short field for much of the afternoon, with 12 tackles, including seven solo stops. The fiery defender also had one tackle for loss, a pass breakup and a sack against the conservative Boston College attack.

Jones also provided the lone bright spot on WVU's otherwise abysmal special teams, returning three punts for 29 yards and six kickoffs for another 110.
