PSR Logo
Mountaineers fall flat at home against a surprising Orange team as Geno Smith throws 3 interceptions.

Syracuse 19 - West Virginia 14

West Virginia lost in Morgantown in front of 58,122, falling to Syracuse 19-14. WVU quarterback Geno Smith threw three costly interceptions and Syracuse capitalized with nine points off of the miscues. Syracuse running backs Antwon Bailey and Delone Carter ran for 169 yards on the West Virginia defense.

OFFENSE

West Virginia was not able to accomplish much offensive other than quarterback Geno Smith's touchdown pass to Travon Austin. Smith threw for 178 yards on 20-of-38 passing but his three interceptions proved to be costly for the Mountaineers. Noel Devine ran for 122 yards to top the 4,000 mark for his career, but he could not score. West Virginia’s leading receiver was Jock Sanders who had three catches for 53 yards including a 28 yard reception.

DEFENSE

The Mountaineer defense held quarterback Ryan Nassib to only 63 yards through the air. Nassib only completed 5 of his 15 attempts but threw a touchdown in the first quarter. Delone Carter ran for 75 yards, including a 46-yard run, as Syracuse was able to control the clock for much of the second half. WVU held Syracuse scoreless in the second half.

NEXT UP

West Virginia (5-2, 1-1) heads to Hartford, Connecticut, to take on the University of Connecticut (3-3. 0-1) next Friday night. UConn was shut out this afternoon by Louisville.
