West Virginia Thread Alert: Banana Suit Gold Rush!

B-A-N-A-N-A S-U-I-T-S!!!

Date and Time: October 6, 2018 at 12:00 PM (ESPN2)

Opponent: Kansas Jayhawks

Threads: Gold-Gold-Gold

Record in Uniform: 1-0

Y’all I am so freaking excited. I love these uniforms. I posted on Twitter and this came to fruition. It’s a GOLD RUSH and we’re going to wear ALL THE FREAKING GOLD!!!

The only time that the West Virginia Mountaineers have ever worn the triple gold banana suits is the 2013 game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys when head coach Dana Holgorsen unleashed the hidden weapon Clint Trickett in his first start. Trickett, who once kissed Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban’s daughter, threw for 309 yards and 1 touchdown in the upset win over the #11 Cowboys. Running back Charles Sims led the team in both rushing with 60 yards and receiving with 5 catches for 82 yards.

The defense picked off quarterback J.W. Walsh twice and returned one for a touchdown.

Get excited for a Banana Suit Gold Rush because it’s coming to town!!!
