Dana Holgorsen's West Virginia Mountaineers have a habit of needing a little extra time to get it going against less-talented competition. Witness their 12-10 halftime deficit against Norfolk State, which turned into a 55-12 win. Likewise, WVU let the Bowling Green Falcons get out to a 10-3 advantage before [Red Bull joke].
Dustin Garrison has been the star for West Virginia. I feel pretty confident in declaring this. He's rushed for 233 yards, wit a long of 42, giving him 84 more yards than Bowling Green's entire offense. This comes a week after Geno Smith set a school record for passing yards in a single game.
Bowling Green's biggest performers: Jamel Martin, with 83 yards receiving, and Jerry Gates, who's averaging 35.2 yards on his five kick returns.
