Player of the Game

West Virginia struggled to move the ball and was down 7-3 at halftime.  On the first play of the game, the Mountaineers went to Tevin Bush on the very first play of the 2nd half and it turned everything around.  Bush caught a pass across the middle, made a juke move and accelerated past a bevy of James Madison defenders for a 41 yard gain.

With 8:48 left in the game and West Virginia up 13-10, quarterback Austin Kendall found a wide-open Tevin Bush in the endzone on 3rd down and 3.  This touchdown was another huge turning point in game and extended the lead of the Mountaineers.

Bush, the 5’6 166 pound Junior wide receiver out of New Orleans, Louisiana, finished the game with 4 receptions, 74 yards (18.5 yards per catch) and 1 touchdown in the 20-13 win over James Madison.
