ESPN Big East Football: USF at West Virginia, Follow Live!

Jayson LoveCorrespondent IOctober 14, 2010

It's another Big East Thursday night showdown as the #25 West Virginia Mountaineers (4-1,0-0 Big East)welcome the South Florida Bulls (3-2, 0-1 Big East) to Morgantown.

It's about 40 minutes from the start of tonight's game, here is what to look out for.

First, you should know that USF has won 3 of the last 4 meetings against West Virginia.  The only win in that stretch for WVU however, came in Morgantown in 2008.

If you haven't followed Big East football this season, these two teams will look far different than you are used to.  Once mirrors of each other, running spread offenses with running quarterbacks, each team seeks more to be more pro-style now.

Bill Stewart's Mountaineers are led by their quarterback Geno Smith.  He is a threat to throw the ball all over the lot, averaging over 200 yards passing per-game.  Unlike his predecessors, Pat White and Jarret Brown, Smith is no threat to run the ball, averaging less than a yard per game.

The running threat for WVU is still Noel Devine who is suddenly a senior for the Mountaineers.  He averages 95 yards per game, and is a threat to take it to the house at any time.

The Bulls are led by their signal-caller B.J. Daniels.  He is in the process of learning a new offense as Skip Holtz, the former East Carolina coach, navigates his first season at USF. 

It had been good results until the Bulls struggled in their Big East opener scoring just nine points in a disappointing loss to Syracuse. 

Should be a close game tonight in Morgantown...
