West Virginia quarter back connected with Mountaineer receiver Tavon Austin in the corner of the end zone to give the Mountaineers an early 7-0 lead.
The Mountaineers continued their offensive rampage marching down effortlessly against the Terrapin defense for a 51 yard touchdown drive.
With the help of another senior to set up the scoring drive, senior receiver Jock Sanders opened up the drive with a nine yard end-around and then followed that up with a 32-yard reception from Geno Smith.
Smith found Tavon Austin alone in the corner of the end zone to give the Mountaineers a commanding 14-0 lead early in the first quarter.
The Mountaineer defense stepped up holding the Terrapin offense to 23 total yards in their first two possessions of the game.
