Texas Football Game on ESPN at Noon #HailWV | https://t.co/hmVNkmvoxX— WVU Football (@WVUfootball) November 12, 2017
For the first time in the Dana Holgorsen era, West Virginia will not have a night game at Milan Puskar Stadium. The West Virginia Mountaineers and Texas Longhorns were put on a six-day window last week with the time to be determined following the games yesterday. At midnight, the call came in and West Virginia will kick off its final home at noon.
According to our own John Lowe, this is the first time that West Virginia has not had a home night game since 2001, the first year Rich Rodriguez took over the team and went 3-8.
Like all of you, we’re angry about the fact that we won’t get one good night game. I’m not sure who makes these calls but for a team that won 10 games last year, has already won 7 this year and has been ranked plenty of times this season, a night game should have been included. The perfect storm would have been against Oklahoma State when you had two ranked teams playing each other. Maybe against Iowa State when a top 15 team was visiting Morgantown. Either way, its disappointing that we can’t get one night game. So fans, show up Saturday and take out your frustrations on the Longhorns early and make the stadium loud.
