Game Recap

by CFP Staff
December 28, 2010

West Virginia turned the ball over five times on four fumbles and an interception, allowing N.C. State to gradually pull away for a 23-7 win in the Champs Sports Bowl on Tuesday.

The first of three Josh Czajkowski field goals (45, 38 and 40) broke a 7-7 tie just before halftime and the Wolfpack never looked back.

ACC teams have won this bowl 7 of the last 8 seasons.

The loss by the Mountaineers (9-4) insures the Big East of not having a single team complete the 2010 season with fewer than 4 losses and none that can achieve a 10-win season.

West Virginia brought a 4-game winning streak into the bowl game while N.C. State had won just 4 of its last 8.

The Mountaineers will begin the 2011 season with Bill Stewart serving as a lame duck head coach. In 2012, the reins will be handed over to incoming offensive coordinator and newly-anointed head coach-in-waiting Dana Holgorsen from Oklahoma State.

N.C. State tied the all-time series with West Virginia at 5-5 in their first meeting in 22 years. The Wolfpack have won four of the last five battles. N.C. State improved its record to 9-4 for the most wins in a single season since 2002 when Philip Rivers led the school to an 11-3 campaign.

West Virginia fell to 13-17 overall in bowl games, and dropped to 5-13 since 1987.

N.C. State improved to 13-11-1 with its fourth bowl win in its last five tries. Head coach Tom O'Brien is 7-2 as a head coach in bowl games with Boston College (6-1) and the Wolfpack (1-1).
