Whoever is running the @OrangeBowl definitely doesn’t lack a sense of humor. In last years’ Orange Bowl, the West Virginia Mountaineers defeated the Clemson Tigers 70 to 33 in what was a complete blow out. West Virginia subsequently put up a billboard to display the score of the game that also happened to be their speed limit. Well, whoever is running the Orange Bowl’s Twitter account they would re-post that picture. A little holiday trolling never hurt everyone. Some WVU fans may not want to see it though after only scoring 14 points against Syracuse this year.

The Weirton Daily Times in Weirton, West Virginia didn’t mean for this typo to get into the Sunday paper. Or… perhaps they did. Either way, this “accidental” bit of word greatness accurately sums up the Pinstripe Bowl and the season half of West Virginia’s 2012 season as well. Graphic… but spot on. Please, someone get [...]
Tempers flared in the snow between the Big 12 West Virginia Mountaineers and the Big East Syracuse Orange. This field in complete snow with all the players wrapped up in gear to keep them kind of warm. Patches of snow are left on the ground and player’s breathes can be seen even on your home television. Would that stop these teams from a pre-game brawl? Absolutely not. The New...
Geno Smith played in his final game as the starting quarterback for the West Virginia Mountaineers in the 2012 Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium before he prepares for the 2013 NFL Draft. Suffice to say, things did not go how Smith would have scripted his final college football game of his great career.
It was one thing for the high powered offense of the Mountaineers to get stifled...
It's a question West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen didn't particularly want to answer after his team's 38-14 loss to Syracuse in Saturday's Pinstripe Bowl.
But as the curtain closed, amid a raging snowstorm, on a fruitless 7-6 season that no one could've foreseen, it's one that begged to be asked.
What the heck happened to the Mountaineers?
See, it wasn...

For some, not every bowl game is worth watching. But we all saw what West Virginia did to Clemson in last year's Orange Bowl, a 70-33 blowout win for the Mountaineers. This season, WVU started 5-0 behind ridiculous play from QB Geno Smith. However, due to their horrendous defense, ranked 116th in points allowed, West Virginia slid to just 7-5 before qualifying for the Pinstripe...
Bowl week marches on, and Syracuse and West Virginia are busy trying to see through the snow falling in Yankee Stadium. So that’s a possible preview of the Super Bowl next year across the Hudson. Anyway, while the Cuse look to upend their former conference foe, a few other games are going on today. If [...]

The Pinstripe Bowl is tied with the Heart of Dallas Bowl as the youngest of the postseason games, beginning just two years ago when the new Yankee Stadium opened. With the Big East and Big 12 tie-ins the game had an opportunity to take West Virginia and Pittsburgh and stay the...
