MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Leddie Brown and Alec Sinkfield gave West Virginia’s running game a lift as the Mountaineers beat Eastern Kentucky 56-10.

Brown and Sinkfield both finished with career highs of 123 yards and two rushing touchdowns in the Mountaineers' season opener.

West Virginia did not have a single 100-yard rusher last season. Brown also caught a touchdown pass from Jarret Doege, who finished with three.

West Virginia overcame the suspension of 11 players for reasons that were undisclosed and not related to the coronavirus pandemic. The Mountaineers led 42-7 at halftime.
