Minshew completed 433 of 613 passes for a total of 4,477 yards (71% completion rate), throwing for 36 touchdowns with just nine interceptions and a QB rating of 148.4.

He became one of the most popular players across the country, not only because of the “Minshew Mustache”, rather, because of his penchant for late game heroics. He has led WSU on game-winning, fourth quarter drives against Utah, Stanford and California. In the fourth quarter this season, Minshew completed 92 of 127 passes (72% completion rate) for 1,169 yards, 13 touchdowns and no interceptions.

  • West Virginia – Will Grier, senior
