Considering who WVU beat and where, the Mountaineers pulled off one of the biggest upsets in BCS history. WVU did a good job of attacking Georgia with the pass between the safties and corners early in the game, which opened up the running game for poised freshmen Steve Slaton and QB Pat White. Two early turnovers put the Dawgs behind and forced them to throw too much. D.J. Shockley almost brought UGa back, but WVU's well-executed fake punt late in the game sealed it for the Mountaineers. |

Steve Slaton and the Mountaineers ran past the Bulldogs in Atlanta.
Georgia entered the Sugar Bowl with the reputation and the home-field advantage. West Virginia didn't have much of a chance. Right. Steve Slaton's legs and a gutsy fake punt late in the fourth quarter helped the Mountaineers shock Georgia 38-35 on Monday. Story
