November 10, 2005|From Associated Press

Freshman quarterback Pat White had 111 yards rushing, taking off on draws that set up freshman Steve Slaton's four touchdowns, and No. 16 West Virginia defeated host Cincinnati, 38-0, Wednesday night.

The Mountaineers (8-1 overall, 5-0 in Big East Conference play) are in position to clinch the conference title heading into their last regular-season games against Pittsburgh and South Florida, their closest pursuer with one conference loss.

Slaton finished with 129 yards. Cincinnati dropped to 4-5, 2-3.

South Carolina and Utah were the only Division I schools that the Black Coaches Assn. said failed to document their search process for a coach and joined three other schools that received Fs on the minority hiring report card released Wednesday.

Notre Dame received a B not for firing Tyrone Willingham, but for the way it went about replacing him, the BCA said.

Of the 119 Division I-A football schools, only three coaches -- Sylvester Croom at Mississippi State, Karl Dorrell at UCLA and Willingham at Washington -- are black. In Division I-AA, Lou West of Indiana State is the only black head coach at a predominantly white university.

Although 13 of 30 schools that made coaching changes in the last year received either an A or B, more than half earned average, below average or failing grades.

Matt Ryan will start at quarterback for Boston College against North Carolina State on Saturday, Coach Tom O'Brien said.
