The West Virginia Mountaineers were unable to mount a comeback in the 2012 New Era Pinstripe Bowl, falling to the Syracuse Orange by a score of 38-14. 

In their 11th straight bowl game, the Mountaineers were unable to stop an impressive Orange ground game, while their own offense struggled to take off until late in the game.  Geno Smith, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey had their contributions felt, but the Mountaineers ground game could not match the 376 yards gained by the Orange.  Defensively, Terence Garvin had a tremendous game but the defense as a whole had few answers for the Orange.

Let's take a look at the Mountaineers' final postgame grades and evaluations.
