MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Pat White threw two touchdown passes before hurting the thumb on his throwing hand and Noel Devine rushed for 125 yards and a score in West Virginia's 27-3 win over Marshall on Saturday.
White went to the sideline after being tackled on a 5-yard run in the third quarter. He had an icepack wrapped on his left hand and didn't return.
West Virginia coach Bill Stewart said after the game that White "was fine" without elaborating. Jarrett Brown replaced White with West Virginia ahead 21-3.
West Virginia (2-2) broke a two-game losing streak and improved to 8-0 against its cross-state foe.
Marshall (3-2) was limited to 158 yards of offense, including 39 yards on the ground. The Thundering Herd had the ball three times inside West Virginia's 20-yard line but couldn't find the end zone.
West Virginia surpassed 300 yards rushing for the second straight game. Stewart interchanged White and Brown at quarterback in an effort to generate more points after the Mountaineers scored a combined 17 points in their two previous games. Both White and Brown lined up at running back.
Many of West Virginia's yards came after plays broke down.
Marshall's Emmanuel Spann fumbled early in the second half and West Virginia recovered near midfield. Devine then ran 36 yards on a busted play to set up White's 3-yard scoring pass to Jock Sanders for a 21-3 lead.
West Virginia applied relentless pressure on Marshall freshman quarterback Mark Cann, who had one of the worst outings of his young career. Cann overthrew several receivers and went just 15-of-36 for 119 yards.
But West Virginia squandered several chances to pile on points.
Mortty Ivy intercepted Cann at midfield just before halftime. White drove the Mountaineers to the Marshall 3 but scrambled on three straight pass attempts and time ran out.
In the third quarter, West Virginia's Doug Slavonic recovered a Cann fumble, but Brown eventually was intercepted in the end zone by freshman DeQuan Bembry.
Bembry got hurt in the second quarter on a pump fake by White, who threw to a wide-open Dorrell Jalloh for a 21-yard score.
Pat McAfee, whose short field-goal try in overtime last week in a 17-14 loss at Colorado hit the upright, kicked field goals of 39 and 36 yards for the Mountaineers.
