Bears quarterback Nick Florence was undeterred after throwing an interception on the second play of the game. He later hit Terrence Williams across the middle, who ran it down to the Mountaineers 14 yard line for a gain of 49 yards. That set up a Jared Salubi one yard touchdown run that gave the Bears a 7-0 lead.
After holding Heisman candidate Geno Smith in check during the first drive, the Bears let the Mountaineers quarterback get loose on West Virginia's second drive. Smith led the Mountaineers on a nine play, 75 yard drive that was capped off by a Andrew Buie touchdown run.
The Bears came right back, marching down the field behind the arm of Lawrence and legs of Salubi and back up running back Glasco Martin, who scored on a seven yard run up the middle, putting the Bears up 14-0.
Smith then led the Mountaineers back down the field in less than two minutes to tie the score up on a seven yard pass to J.D. Woods.
Cornerback Demetri Goodson was seen walking to the locker room with his left arm wrapped up. There is no word yet on whether he will return to the game.
