West Virginia - Marshall Game Called Due To Lightning Storm, WVU Wins 34-13

After more than three hours of delays, Sunday's game between the West Virginia Mountaineers and Marshall Thundering Herd has been called. Despite 14:36 left in the fourth quarter, WVU has been named the winner by the score of 34-13.

Both teams came and went from the locker room several times as they awaited official word that didn't seem to come for a long time. Finally, minutes before the game was called, equipment people began moving their carts off the field and players began removing their pads and jerseys.

As for the game itself, QB Geno Smith was the star in West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen's debut, completing 26 of 35 passes for 249 yards and 2 touchdowns in the shortened game.

Marshall had some momentum in the third quarter after forcing a turnover on downs and cutting WVU's lead to 20-13 with a field goal. However, Tavon Austin took the ensuing kickoff 100 yards for the score, cementing the win for West Virginia. The weather delay began shortly after the score.
