     Freshman safety Kenny Robinson has made some big plays over the last few weeks. None may be bigger than the play he made Saturday. Robinson’s interception and return for a touchdown brought life back into Milan Puskar Stadium and back to the West Virginia (7-4, 5-3) sideline that had not been present since a gruesome hand injury to quarterback Will Grier earlier in the game.

     No. 24 West Virginia (2-1) hadn’t gotten off to the greatest starts in either of its first two games of the regular season. Third time’s the charm, as they say. After trailing 3-2 in the opening minute of the game, the Mountaineers jumped out to nearly a forty-point lead by halftime en route to a 111-48 win over Morgan State (2-2) Saturday evening inside the Coliseum.
