It had to be the most topsy-turvy month in West Virginia football history.
West Virginia was cruising to a birth in the national championship game -- all it had to do was beat Pitt, a 3-touchdown underdog -- to get there.
But Pitt pulled the shocker: 13 to 9.
"A nightmare, just a flat out nightmare," said Coach Rich Rodriguez.
Amazingly, Rodriguez would leave West Virginia for the Michigan job. That meant the Mountaineers headed out to Tempe, Arizona. Bill Stewart was the interim head coach.
Oklahoma didn't know what hit them. WVU won 48 to 28.
It was a convincing interview for Bill Stewart, who was named the permanent head coach the day after this game.
