Date: November 10, 2018

Opponent: TCU Horned Frogs

Threads: Blue Helmets - Blue Jerseys - Blue Pants

Record in Uniform: 3-4

The uniforms have come full circle. In 2014, the West Virginia Mountaineers named this combination “True Blue” as they welcomed the TCU Horned Frogs into Milan-Puskar Stadium with their 6-2 record, Bilenitkoff Finalist wide receiver and ESPN College Gameday. The Mountaineers lead the game for 59 minutes and 59 seconds until TCU kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired. It was a heartbreaker.

Now the Mountaineers get to enact their full revenge. they sit 7-1 after coming from behind and breaking the hearts of the Texas Longhorns while the Horned Frogs are in the midst of a down year. This will be the first time the Mountaineers have worn this combination against TCU since that fateful 2014 game. The Mountaineers can move one step closer to reaching the Big 12 Championship Game with a win on Saturday.
