Big East Award

Pat White's 220 rushing yards earned him player of the week honors in the Big East.

In West Virginia's 45-13 win over Pittsburgh on Thanksgiving night, Pat White set a new Big East record for yards rushing in a game by a quarterback (220), surpassing a mark held by Virginia Tech's Michael Vick (210 yards vs. BC, 9/30/00).

White carried the ball 23 times for 220 yards (9.6 avg.) and two touchdowns. He also passed for 41 yards and a touchdown. White, who has started only three games, has 698 rushing yards on the season, placing him third on the all-time Big East list for yards rushing in a season by a quarterback.

Freshman running back Steve Slaton earned a spot on the week's honor roll with his 179-yard, three touchdown performance.
