Pittsburgh-Cincinnati has Mountain State feel

Oct. 22, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

Sunday Night Football's matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals featured two teams that have seven players suiting up that played collegiately in the Mountain State.

Each team featured two starters with Mountain State ties -- one each from Marshall and West Virginia.

Marshall's Doug Legursky lined up at starting center while former WVU player Will Johnson lined up at fullback for the Steelers.

For Cincinnati, the secondary featured former Marshall safety Chris Crocker, who had an interception, and West Virginia's Adam "PacMan" Jones.

In addition to the starters, Pittsburgh also has former Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich and former West Virginia free safety Ryan Mundy on the roster.

West Virginia's Robert Sands is on the reserve/injured roster for Cincinnati also.
