It was sloppy for most of the first half, but No. 16 West Virginia still rolled to a 43-16 victory over Connecticut Saturday afternoon.
Don't underestimate the importance of this win.
Connecticut upset WVU last year en route to turning around its season and winning the Big East championship.
That loss was also the beginning of the end of former coach Bill Stewart.
Blowing out the Huskies was a good statement for the Mountaineers, even if Connecticut has struggled all season.
The Mountaineers get a week off before embarking on consecutive road trips to Syracuse and Rutgers. OK, those aren't trips to LSU or Oklahoma, but they're still challenging Big East games.
So what did we learn about WVU today that could help the Mountaineers in the future, and what do they need to work on to get better?
Let's take a look.
