Perfect Home Finale

WVU senior defensive back Nate Sowers couldn't think of a better way to close his home career than with a win over Pitt, and that's just what he and his teammates did as the Mountaineers knocked off the Panthers 19-16.

Nate Sowers noted that the defense's main focus was to slow Pitt's running game, which it did for the most part. Other than two Dion Lewis runs, the Mountaineers didn't allow Pitt to control the line of scrimmage or put together lengthy drives. WVU allowed Pitt to run just 59 plays on the evening.

In this interview, Sowers discusses West Virginia's defensive strategy, and also shares some of the scenes from the Mountaineer locker room.
