MORGANTOWN, W. Va. -- Just about everything is going right for West Virginia, and quarterback Geno Smith is working on a perfect game.
Smith, who was so good at the end of the Marshall game in leading that comeback, is 10-for-10 for 173 yards and three touchdowns early in the second quarter. The Terrapins just have no answer for West Virginia's speed in the open field. The Mountaineers are hitting them with short catch-and-runs, and then they're throwing a couple of long shots at them, like Smith's 26-yard strike to a wide open Stedman Bailey that just made it 21-0.
Meanwhile, Maryland has just one first down in three possessions. It's still early, but this is is shaping up as the best performance by a Big East team all year against a quality opponent.
