Matchup: South Florida vs. West Virginia


Lafferty, Tricia, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


WEST VIRGINIA (7-4, 4-2 Big East) vs. SOUTH FLORIDA (7-4, 2-4)

8 p.m. today

Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium

TV/Radio: ESPN 2/Mountaineer Sports Network, Sirius channel 126.

Series: South Florida leads, 2-1. The Bulls have won the past two meetings, including a 21-13 victory in Tampa last season.

Line: WVU by 7 Prediction: West Virginia 38, South Florida 17

It may be hard to imagine West Virginia football without Pat White, but his career at Mountaineer Field will come to a close tonight. Ironically enough, White's career took off in a game against South Florida three years ago: As a freshman in his fourth game as a starter, White rushed for touchdowns of 65 and 76 yards.

WEST VIRGINIA MOUNTAINEERS

This senior class is used to these final conference games being more meaningful. Now that West Virginia is out of the Big East title picture and BCS bowl contention, a lesser bowl invitation might hang on tonight's result. The past three seasons, West Virginia has been to the Sugar, Gator and Fiesta bowls. It's important to the senior class - highlighted by kicker/punter Pat McAfee, offensive lineman Ryan Stanchek, White and linebacker Mortty Ivy - to become the winningest class in West Virginia history. Look for coach Bill Stewart to let White loose to do what he does best.

By the numbers

QB Pat White: Needs 39 more yards of total offense to reach 10,000 yards for his career.

Senior class: Can tie the 2007 class (41-9) as the winningest class in school history with a victory.
