West Virginia doesn’t have a great record in this uniform, despite the great memory of beating the dog snot out of Clemson Tigers in them. In fact, in the older version, the ones with the pickaxe font, which is still great bytheway, they Mountaineers were only 1-3. That one win came against Texas back in the ten win 2016 season, when they went into Austin and won. Shades of 2020?

The Mountaineers also wore this combination last year when they ambushed the Kansas State Wildcats in Manhattan, Kansas with newly minted starting quarterback Jarret Doege. Doege led the Mountaineers to the first win over a ranked foe in the Neal Brown era when he beat the ‘Cats 24-20.

Enjoy the highlights of beating Texas and Clemson in this uniform.
