The Penguins came to Morgantown in 1938 and left with a 27-6 loss. * YSU may not have much experience with WVU, but it does have plenty of history in the Mountain State. The Penguins lost the 1992 I-AA national title game to Marshall in Huntington, then beat the Thundering Herd in the 1993 championship, also in Huntington. YSU returned to the city in 1994 to beat Boise State for the I-AA crown. Youngstown States last game at Marshall was a 2001 loss.
