West Virginia Thread Alert: Appalachian Tigers Roar Into Lubbock

The best road uniforms in the land come out again

West Virginia Uniforms: Appalachian Tigers
Michael Miller -

Date and Time: September 29, 2018 at 12:00 PM (ESPN2)

Opponent: Texas Tech Red Raiders

Threads: Gold-White-Gold

Record in Uniform: 3-1

The absolute best road combination in the West Virginia Mountaineers closet comes out early this year. This is my favorite combo.

Interestingly enough, this is only the second time the Mounties have worn a true road uniform against the Raiders in this uniform set. In 2014 TTU tried to get cute and wore their cheap knock off version of the Stormtrooper so the Eers wore all blue. In 2016, West Virginia wore this exact combination and roared into Lubbock and left with a 48-17 victory.

This is a great choice for the team. The color palette reminds everyone of the LSU Tigers. When I think about the LSU Tigers, I think suffocating defense. WVU has played like LSU when they've worn this combo and in order to stay unbeaten, they will need the defense to show up and show out on Saturday.
