West Virginia Football 2013 Spring Game: Live Analysis, Notes and Recap

Alex SimsCorrespondent IIIApril 20, 2013

Final: Blue (Defense) 41, Gold (Offense) 33

The defense—yes, the defense—emerged victorious at West Virginia's 2013 Gold-Blue spring game on Saturday afternoon in Morgantown.

However, through great defensive plays from defensive back K.J. Dillon, linebacker Doug Rigg and others, most eyes were on the performance of the offense.

Specifically, the attention was squarely on the quarterback battle, which featured junior Paul Millard and freshman Ford Childress splitting reps evenly.

Both had their moments of success, but both showed signs of struggle as well. The only thing clear from that battle is that it will likely continue through the summer and into the fall.

Additionally, the WVU running game showed much promise, as returner Dustin Garrison and newcomer Dreamius Smith each had strong performances.

Finally, two wide receivers stood out in the game. Look for that and more on the new WVU uniforms in our full winners and losers recap, which will be posted here shortly.

Thanks to all of those who followed along for our coverage of the Gold-Blue game.
