Saturday, December 27, 2008. (AP) -- Pat White had one more dazzling comeback in him before finishing his record-breaking college career.
White threw for 332 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown pass to Alric Arnett midway through the fourth quarter that helped West Virginia to a 31-30 win over North Carolina on Saturday in the Meineke Bowl.
The senior quarterback was voted MVP of a bowl for the third straight year and finished 4-0 in postseason games, helping West Virginia (9-4) overcome Hakeem Nicks' big day for North Carolina to end a disappointing season on a positive note.
Nicks caught eight passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns for the Tar Heels (8-5), but T.J. Yates was intercepted by Pat Lazear with under 2 minutes left to preserve West Virginia's win.
