Led by White and a fellow freshman, running back Steve Slaton (school-record six touchdowns), WVU eked out a 46--44 triple OT win.
COLLEGE KNOWLEDGE The Mountaineers' pep song, Fight, Mountaineers, was composed during the early 1900s by Fuzzy Knight, a law student at West Virginia who later played several roles in popular Western movies.
