MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -Quarterback Pat White left No. 2 West Virginia's game with Pittsburgh after dislocating the thumb on his non-throwing hand Saturday night.

White was hurt on a keeper with 5:12 left in the second quarter when he fell awkwardly on his right hand. He went to the sidelines and trainers wrapped his hand in ice.

Jarrett Brown replaced White and led the Mountaineers to the game's opening points, finishing the drive with a 6-yard touchdown run.

The Mountaineers announced the extent of the injury at halftime and said White was being evaluated. His status for the second half wasn't immediately known.

White, who had rushed for at least 100 yards in his four previous games, had a team-high 33 yards on nine carries in the first half and completed four of six passes for 30 yards.
