at West Virginia 24, Rutgers 17: Pat White threw two touchdown passes for West Virginia and moved into second place on the NCAA's career rushing list for quarterbacks. But White was also injured for the second straight week, leaving the game late in the third quarter after being tackled on a 10-yard run. Coach Bill Stewart said that White was hit in the head and could have returned to the game but remained on the sideline as a precaution. White rushed for 59 yards to move past Indiana's Antwaan Randle El, who ran for 3,895 yards from 1998 to 2001. White has 3,934 career yards and is 356 yards away from breaking former Missouri star Brad Smith's mark set from 2002 to 2005. With Major Harris and other members of the 1988 West Virginia team that finished undefeated in the regular season on hand, the Mountaineers (3-2, 1-0) improved to 16-0 at home against Rutgers (1-4, 0-1). The last time Rutgers came to Morgantown, Mike Teel's two-point conversion pass in triple overtime was broken up, and the Scarlet Knights lost. Teel got another chance Saturday, throwing for one score and running for another to rally Rutgers from a 17-3 deficit. Teel was sharp on a 58-yard drive midway through the fourth quarter, going five for eight for 49 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown to Tim Brown.
