New, 9 comments

The Mountaineers will wear the best alternate uniform combination in their arsenal as they get ready to take on TCU.

West Virginia Uniforms: Appalachian Tigers
Michael Miller - Smoking Musket

Date: October 7, 2017

Opponent: TCU Horned Frogs

Threads: Old Gold Helmets - White Jersey - Old Gold Pants

Record in Uniform: 3-0

When it comes to alternate uniforms, this combination is the single best selection the Mountaineers possess and nothing anyone says can change my mind. This uniform combination mimics the LSU Tigers traditional yellow-white-yellow scene, the Mountaineers combination elicited those same images the first time this combination was worn.

True to form, when the Mountaineers have worn this combination, they have played like the LSU Tigers. In three road games with this combination, the Mountaineers have allowed 10 points the first time they wore them against Oklahoma State in 2014, 0 against Kansas in 2015 and 17 points as they held the prolific Texas Tech offense to under half their typical production. Defense has been the name of the game with these uniforms and wearing them for TCU is the perfect time to have the best defensive performance of the season.
