    WVU Routs Delaware State Despite Sloppy Start

     West Virginia’s slow start did little to concern head coach Dana Holgorsen Saturday afternoon. The Mountaineers (2-1) dropped passes and committed early turnovers against a Delaware State (0-3) team that hasn’t won a game dating back to the 2015 season finale. Yet while those early miscues hurt the team early, they rebounded to size a commanding 59-16 victory over the Hornets at Milan Puskar Stadium.
