West Virginia opened up the season with a statement against Marshall on Saturday afternoon.  Senior quarterback Geno Smith had the game of his life with 323 yards, a mere four incomplete passes and a rushing touchdown. 

The Mountaineers ended up defeating their in-state rival 69-34.  Smith was the main story with completing 32 of 36 passes without an interception. 

Running back Shawne Alston ran for 123 yards and two touchdowns.  It was the Mountaineers' highest- scoring opener. 

It felt like the Orange Bowl all over again to some extent.  While WVU didn't get 70 points, it was a showcase of offensive talent and a lot of potential for the future.

Here's a look at some of the postgame grades on all facets of the game.
