The Eagles (6-2, 2-1) must get better in a hurry if they hope to compete with WVU (8-1, 4-0) on Saturday (ABC, noon ET) at Mountaineer Field. They struggled in defeating Rutgers, 21-10, last week at Alumni Stadium, where they turned the ball over four times, committed eight penalties and finished 2 of 14 on third-down conversions. "It's hard to tell what we are and who we are right now," said coach Tom O'Brien, whose team overcame a 10-7 second-half deficit to become bowl eligible for the sixth consecutive year. "Either we're the ugliest team that's really good or we're a team still struggling to find out what we are on offense."
