Once again, the defense played well enough to win the game. They scored one of only two West Virginia touchdowns on the day. They finished the game with 7 TFL’s, 3 sacks, and one interception. In the end, the offense couldn’t move the chains enough to get the gassed defense off the field. Let’s discuss the top Mountaineer performances from Saturday.

Tykee Smith

Smith’s pick six was the play of the game for the Mountaineer defense. The true freshman finished the game with 5 solo tackles and his interception was the only turnover of the game for West Virginia. The future looks bright for Tykee Smith.

Josh Norwood

Norwood led the team in tackles again this week. He has quietly led the team in tackles three straight games. His consistency has been a major key for this defense. He finished the game with 10 total tackles, 5 solo tackles, 1 TFL, and 1 pass defended.

Josh Chandler

Chandler put together a solid performance against the Cyclones. He finished the game with 5 solo tackles, 1 TFL, and 1 pass defended. The sophomore has made big plays this season and has been a valuable member of the defense.
