Devine, who rushed for a career-high 207 yards and
a touchdown on 17 carries in a 34-17 win against Auburn, was edged out by Teel, who tossed six TD passes in Rutgers' win over Pittsburgh. However, that didn't diminish the import of Devine's performance, which landed him a spot on the Big East Honor Roll. He had six runs of
at least 20 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Also included was a signature reverse-the-field scamper that took West Virginia out of a fourth quarter hole and set the Mountaineers up for the win over their SEC foe -- WVU's fourth consecutive such victory.
Linebacker Anthony Leonard joined Devine on the honor roll with his outstanding defensive performance. The Pennsylvania native had a game- and career-high 16
tackles in the win, including 11 in the first half. Leonard led a WVU defense that limited the
Tigers to 84 total yards in the second half.
Leonard has been a stalwart in the middle for WVU since replacing Reed Williams, who was forced to take a redshirt this year while recovering from off-season shoulder surgery.
