    09/13/07 - Steve Slaton was outstanding, as usual. No one, however, expected West Virginia's running game to be so Devine. Slaton ran for 137 yards and three touchdowns, Noel Devine amassed 125 yards on his first three carries, and No. 4 West Virginia cruised past Maryland 31-14 Thursday night. Slaton scored on runs of 22, 1 and 1 yards. He has 41 touchdowns at West Virginia, one short of the school record shared by Ira Errett Rodgers and Avon Cobourne. - AP Sports

    09/10/07 - LOOKING GOOD: RB Steve Slaton rushed for 144 of his 146 yards and both touchdowns in the second half as West Virginia rallied from a 13-6 halftime deficit.

    09/10/07 - GAME BALL GOES TO: RB Steve Slaton rushed for a game-high 146 yards and touchdowns on 24 carries. Slaton came up big in the second half, rushing for 144 yards and both touchdowns, as West Virginia overcame a 6-3 deficit and avoided being upset. Slaton became the third West Virginia running back to surpass 3,000 career rushing yards, joining Avon Cobourne (5,164) and Amos Zereoue (4,086). Slaton currently stands a 3,127 yards.

    09/04/07 - LOOKING GOOD: RB Steve Slaton scored four touchdowns, three on the ground, as he rushed for 109 yards and another on a pass reception; he caught two passes for 61 yards.

    09/04/07 - QUOTE TO NOTE: "Are they as good as advertised? Yeah, they're that. They're that. They're getting all this publicity. It's for real." WMU safety C.J. Wilson on the West Virginia duo of QB Pat White and TB Steve Slaton, who combined for 398 yards of total offense and seven touchdowns.

    IMO, Darren McFadden is the best college football player, but Slaton should get the Heisman. Better team (WVU should have 1 loss at the most, while ARK will lose 2-3), probably will have more TDs, but Pat White is gonna take away votes from him.

    Slatons running style reminds me of Dorsett
    Ray Rice reminds of Emmitt Smith

    Not that either will be that player but the running style's are similar.
