Mountaineers Take Down The Tigers

The WVU Mountaineers kicked off 125 years of football on Saturday with a 26-11 victory against a SEC opponent. They handed the Mizzou Tigers their first season-opener loss in 15 years.

While there were questions going into the game about how effective West Virginia’s defense would be after replacing 9 starters, they gashed the Tigers’ offense in the 26-11 victory. They forced the Tigers to settle for field goals of 19 and 21 yards.

All in all, they only gave up 3 points until the 4th quarter, when the Tigers mounted an impressive rally in the final 2 minutes of the game.

West Virginia’s offensive line also put on an admirable performance. They manhandled the Tigers along the line of scrimmage.

I look forward to Saturday’s game against Youngstown State University. Let’s hope they work on their red-zone conversions, since twice they had to settle for 3 points from inside the 5-yard line.

    Watch out Penguins! I bet the tailgate for the game next week will be even more stellar. Are David and Jill coming to witness this epic battle?
