Click for Gametracker information.

WVUsports.com offers live statistics for your enjoyment for all home game and select road games where CBS College Sports GameTracker is available. The WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics staff members are at the games recording and transmitting the stats to our website so they can be viewed in real time on the Internet.

GameTracker is a live statistical interface driven by the stats feed from an official scoring computer utilizing the industry-leading statistical software - The Automated Scorebook from Stat Crew Software. CBS College Sports also enjoys a partnership with STATS, which provides GameTracker coverage of several events each year for its partners.

Providing GameTracker coverage of an event is easy and requires no additional personnel. With each entry into the scoring software (play, pitch, timeout, etc.), an .xml file is generated, sent to our servers and then parsed into the GameTracker interface.

With GameTracker, coverage often extends well beyond just home events. Utilizing our event database, we are able to present stats for an event in different interfaces. Thus, with no effort, a GameTracker partner can offer live stats from its site, in its own interface, for any road contest in which the host is providing GameTracker coverage. With more than 150 schools, conferences and collegiate athletic organizations using GameTracker for at least one sport, many enjoy extensive road coverage.

GameTracker is available to every school, conference or collegiate athletics organization, CBS College Sports website partners. The list of schools which are not partners of ours for their Official Athletic Website, but use GameTracker, grows each year. Some of the more notable examples: BYU, Florida, Rutgers and West Virginia.
