WVU Rips WMU

Pat White threw two touchdown passes
and ran for two more scores and Steve Slaton also scored four times
in third-ranked West Virginia's 62-24 rout of Western Michigan.

It was the Mountaineers' highest scoring game since an 80-7 win
over Rutgers in 2001, WVU coach Rich Rodriguez's first season. West
Virginia improved to 5-0 against Mid-American Conference schools
under Rodriguez.

Western Michigan's defense was sixth in the nation against the
run last season. But it couldn't contain one of the nation's top
rushing tandems. That also allowed White to thrive through the air.
The junior went 10-of-18 for 192 yards. He also ran for 97 yards in
improving to 16-and-2 as a starter.

Slaton, the nation's fourth-leading rusher a year ago, ran for
109 yards after being held to 21 in the opening half.
