Parker McKinney completed seven of his ten passes for 71 yards and an interception. Quentin Pringle and Alonzo Booth combined for 72 yards rushing on 21 carries.
The West Virginia Mountaineers enter the 2020 campaign looking to take significant steps forward for second year head coach Neal Brown. Last year, West Virginia lost seven games and failed to qualify for a bowl game but did defeat TCU in their final regular season game. In July, the Mountaineers parted ways with defensive coordinator Vic Koenning following an investigation of player misconduct.
The West Virginia offense needs to make the biggest strides in the running game, after averaging just 73 yards on the ground a season ago. WR Sam Jones (69 rec) returns as the top option through the air for the Mountaineers.
