West Virginia has both the offensive and defensive Big East Players of the Week following the Mountaineers' 31-17 win over Maryland.

Geno Smith completed 19 of 29 passes for 268 yards and four touchdowns in West Virginia's 31-17 win against Maryland. He started the game by completing his first 10 passes for 173 yards and three TDs while helping the Mountaineers take a 28-0 lead into the third quarter. Smith threw touchdown passes of 6, 5, 26 and 5 yards to remain unbeaten as West Virginia's starting quarterback.

Bruce Irvin
Bruce Irvin was the catalyst of a West Virginia defense that limited Maryland to -10 rushing yards and 217 net yards in the 31-17 win against the Terrapins.

Irvin had three sacks, resulting in a loss of 22 yards, a pass breakup and a forced fumble to go with four tackles from his defensive end position.

Irvin's three sacks were the most for a WVU player in a game since James Davis recorded the same number against Rutgers in 2001.
