MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -Quarterback Pat White missed much of No. 2 West Virginia's game against Pittsburgh after dislocating the thumb on his non-throwing hand Saturday night.
White was hurt on a keeper with 5:12 left in the second quarter when he fell awkwardly on his right hand. He went to the sideline and trainers wrapped his hand in ice. He didn't return until midway through the fourth quarter with West Virginia trailing 13-7.
Jarrett Brown replaced White after the initial injury and led West Virginia to the game's opening points, finishing the drive with a 6-yard touchdown run.
White had a team-high 33 yards on nine carries in the first half and completed four of six passes for 30 yards. He had surpassed 200 rushing yards in his two previous games against Pittsburgh.
It marked the third time this season that White was hurt in a game. He injured a chest muscle against Syracuse and a thigh against South Florida.
White thrust himself into the Heisman Trophy race by rushing for at least 100 yards in his four previous games as the Mountaineers clinched the Big East title and a berth in the Bowl Championship Series. The junior has 1,177 yards and 14 rushing TDs this season, along with 1,528 yards passing and 12 scores.
