MORGANTOWN, W.Va – There are no key inactives besides the obvious of cornerback Charles Woods for West Virginia in their Week 3 game with Towson. Woods is believed to have had surgery this week, but WVU will see one prominent change in the lineup today.

The biggest piece of news before the game kicks off officialize what Neal Brown hinted at during his weekly press conference on Tuesday. Brown mentioned that the defense was out of position frequently against Kansas and he may shake things up a bit for the next game. He even said Sean Martin has earned the right to play more. That has come true on death chart. Martin will get the start at defensive end. This is Martin’s first career start. Taijh Alston will serves as his backup on the day.

It will also remain to be seen what this actually means for playing time throughout the game and season, as well as, how often the starters see action in a matchup with an FCS opponent.

The 0-2 Mountaineers and 2-0 Tigers are scheduled to kickoff at 1 pm.
