Defensive backs coach Tony Gibson describes the changes and provides insight as to why WVU went with its more experienced cornerbacks to start the Backyard Brawl. Gibson also reveals the reason for the rotation he used in the second half, and how some strategy switches helped the Mountaineers shut out the potent Pitt offense in the second half of WVU's 45-27 win.
Vets Tighten Up
Pitt quarterback Tyler Palko had completed 16 of 19 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns, and there didn't seem to be anything that could stop the Panthers from matching West Virginia score for score. With Pitt holding a 27-24 halftime lead, WVU's coaching staff knew it had to make some adjustments to give the Mountaineers a better chance to win the game.
