In the highest scoring game in the history of Mountaineer Field, WVU was able to defeat the Baylor Bears 70-63 on September 29, 2012.

Geno Smith had a career day for any Mountaineer quarterback. Smith finished 45-for-51 with 656 yards and eight touchdowns to no interceptions. Many in the media wanted to hand him the Heisman Trophy after the performance.

Stedman Bailey also set school records with 313 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns. Tavon Austin wasn’t far behind him with 215 receiving yards and two touchdowns.


West Virginia tallied 807 total yards on offense, and used a big third quarter surge to outrun the Bears.


But wait – there’s more…


J.D. Woods had what was possibly the most difficult catch ever for the Old Gold & Blue.


It was all around a fantastic day for the Mountain State. Let’s hope for more fireworks this Saturday when WVU takes on the Bears in Morgantown.

The game kicks off at noon on ABC.
