- West Virginia leads the all-time series with a 66-53 record. The last matchup between these two programs came on January 31, 1991 – when both schools were still in the Atlantic 10 Conference – and saw the Nittany Lions defeat the Mountaineers, 66-63, in Morgantown. Today’s game will not count against the all-time series record.
