You will have to excuse the Syracuse defense if it collectively believes White has already done just that. The way White ran past the Orange during No. 5 West Virginia’s 41-17 rout of Syracuse in front of 60,051 homecoming fans, it’s hard to believe that Slaton, WVU’s tailback, is the faster of the two.
White broke his own Big East rushing record for quarterbacks with a staggering 247 yards on just 15 carries and the Mountaineers — with Slaton pitching in 163 yards — ran for 457 in WVU’s school-record-tying 13th straight victory.
The win improves West Virginia to 6-0 heading into a Friday night game at Connecticut, with the much-anticipated Big East showdown against Louisville on tap two weeks later.
