It's A Final: WVU 35, ECU 20

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Jarrett Brown threw a career-high four touchdown passes and West Virginia overcame special teams mistakes and 11 penalties to beat East Carolina 35-20 Saturday.

Brown completed nine straight passes at one point against a veteran defense and finished 24 of 31 for a career-high 334 yards.

West Virginia (2-0) sacked Patrick Pinkney four times and held East Carolina (1-1) scoreless in the second half. The Mountaineers used last year's 24-3 loss at East Carolina as motivation and improved to 13-0 at home against the Pirates.

East Carolina turned two West Virginia miscues on punts into scores, but Pinkney struggled against a defense that lost three starters to injury in the first half. Pinkney went 16 of 39 for 175 yards. East Carolina was limited to 237 yards of offense.

    If Skip doesn't start coaching both halves of the game, he will be dancing on the bread line soon.

    I know that there are a lot of people questioning this year's team but I think that this is the week that will tell us where our program is in the mix. The quarterbacks we have faced this year have been good. If UNC is sitting back on their heels, they may have a surprise coming this week. Skip is a good motivator like his father and I believe that we will be ready to play. I do think it is time to let Jonathan Williams loose. He has been required to earn back the respect of his coach and fans because of stupid mistakes. I believe that Jonathan is ready to show that he is one of the best running backs in the nation. We just need to give him some reps and let him do what he does best, run the football. You can tell that he is ready to let people see what he can do and Kenan Stadium is the place to let hime go. It comes down to attitude and I believe he is prepared to give us a show. Please, someone, pass this information to the offensive Coordinator before Saturday's game.

    bahahaha I love how everybody hates on ECU for being drunk! At least at our school we know how to have a good time, other than getting accused of raping people!

    Sounds like the team quit in the second half again. What the heck is the stength and conditioning coach doing?

    Take Pickney out. He can't handle pressure, put that freshman qb in from Mt Airy. He's good.
