LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- West Virginia's Pat White broke the NCAA record for most career rushing yards by a quarterback in leading the Mountaineers to a 35-21 win over Louisville on Saturday.

White ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns to give him 4,292 yards for his career, breaking the record of 4,289 set by former Missouri quarterback Brad Smith between 2002-05.

Noel Devine added 154 yards rushing for West Virginia (7-3, 4-1 Big East) which ran for 376 yards while averaging nearly 10 yards a carry to send Louisville (5-6, 1-5) to its fourth straight loss.

The rushing mark wasn't the only record White took down on Saturday. He added two passing touchdowns to bring his career total for touchdowns accounted for to 98, eclipsing the Big East record of 96 held by former Syracuse quarterback Donovan McNabb.

Louisville quarterback Hunter Cantwell threw for 276 yards with a touchdown but also threw three interceptions.
