The Mountaineers posted their first shutout since blanking Coastal Carolina in 2010. Seven different players scored touchdowns for West Virginia, the most since seven players scored against Norfolk State in 2011. The 54-point margin of victory was the Mountaineers’ largest since an 80-7 win over Rutgers in 2011.

The neutral site game in Atlanta marked the just the sixth time in 32 years the Mountaineers have opened the season away from Morgantown. Mario Alford’s 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown was the program’s first kickoff return score since Tavon Austin against Kansas State in 2012. It was West Virginia’s first season-opening loss since 2003.
