Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen says principles of the BYU offenses of the 1980s impacted his early days in football -- while playing at Iowa Wesleyan in 1991 and 1992, then as an assistant at Valdosta State under Hal Mumme. "We took [BYU concepts] and stole them and maintain them to this day," Holgorsen said. BYU and WVU meet Saturday at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.
