1983 Hall of Fame Bowl – No. 18 West Virginia vs. Kentucky

As athletic events come to a halt, we’ll spend some time looking back at Mountaineer highlights and games from past seasons.

The 1983 season started with great promise for fourth year head coach Don Nehlen and his Mountaineers, who were led by senior quarterback Jeff Hostetler. WVU ran out 6-0 record to start the season and rose as high as No. 4 in the national rankings. Back-to-back road losses at Penn State (41-23) and Miami, Fla. (20-3) set West Virginia back in October, but the Mountaineers concluded the year with a second-half comeback to score a 20-16 victory over Kentucky in the Hall of Fame Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama, to finish 9-3.
