Today’s BGN Memorable Moment (Day 5)
During the 2003 season, the Mountaineers found themselves in Miami down by six points with just over two minutes remaining in the Orange Bowl. With the ball on the Miami 24-yard line, WVU quarterback Rasheed Marshall called his cadence from the shotgun. The West Virginia signal caller was expecting the Hurricanes to bring the heat, but the blitz didn’t come.
The screen play that had been called initially looked to be a dud, but Quincy Wilson somehow worked some magic. With Miami defensive players hitting the grass left and right, the Mountaineer running back would not be denied the end zone. With only one Hurricane remaining in his way, Wilson bowled over Brandon Meriweather. The Miami defender was brutally ran over, and then hurdled, as Wilson gave us ESPN’s 2003 Top Play of the Year.
