West Virginia Dominates Cincinnati

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — On the day that West Virginia University honored its all-time winningest head coach, Don Nehlen, the Mountaineers got up early (28-7 at halftime) and stayed in control throughout the game to move to 7-4 on the season with an impressive 42-21 victory over Cincinnati.

The Mountaineers were led by another outstanding performance by starting quarterback Garrett Greene, who finished the game 11/17 for 208 yards and 1 touchdown through the air, and 11 carries for 154 yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground. Freshman running back Jahiem White, who started in place of CJ Donaldson, had an incredible 75 touchdown reception in the first half, leading the Mountaineers in receiving yards. He also ran the ball 21 times for 204 yards.

West Virginia is back in action next weekend in its final game of the regular season against the Baylor Bears in Waco, Texas. Baylor is currently 3-7 overall and 2-5 in the Big 12 Conference.
