The yardage game has been just about even, but a Geno Smith fumble has made the difference. Both sides are excelling on the ground offensively -- five rushing touchdowns, including an 80-yarder by Tavon Austin

WVU was in position for a field goal just before the half, but a big loss moved them out of range. In a game short on defense, those three points could prove mighty valuable.
