It's not too often you get to see a player that doesn't line up in the backfield dominate a game over a stretch of time, but it happened for a quarter tonight. Mountaineers wide receiver and kick returner Tavon Austin finished the first quarter of tonight's WVU-Texas game with 166 all-purpose yards on just six touches. That ridiculous stat is made all the more impressive by the fact that Austin caught one ball for three yards, another for six, and another for nine: All told, he broke off two kick returns and one touchdown reception for 151 yards in one quarter. Above, the five biggest gainers, from the opening kick to the 40 yard catch that put the Mountaineers up a score.
