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!!!
Y'all worried about Oklahoma uniforms and I just want the team to wear these on Saturday pic.twitter.com/3BIGOxYhfv— West Virginia Take Me Home (@NiteStare) October 1, 2018
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!!!
