Welcome to the Gibby Bowl.

Long-time West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson makes his return to Morgantown as North Carolina State visits the Mountaineers at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Gibson, who began his second stint at WVU in 2013, interviewed for the head coaching position when Dana Holgorsen was hired by Houston in January. Athletic director Shane Lyons elected to go with Neal Brown, who had proved himself as a head coach at Troy.

A co-coordinator at N.C. State, Gibson has his defense playing well through the first two games of the season. N.C. State and Wisconsin share a distinction other than Russell Wilson — the two teams are the only ones left in the FBS who haven’t given up a touchdown this season.

Meanwhile, West Virginia’s offense is trying to rebound from a sluggish start to the season. The Mountaineers rank dead last nationally running the ball with an average of 1.1 yards per carry.
