West Virginia Thread Alert: Cactus Bowl In Ames

NCAA FOOTBALL: JAN 02 Cactus Bowl - West Virginia v Arizona State Photo by Carlos Herrera/Icon Sportswire/Corbis/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Date: December 5, 2020

Time: 3:30 on ESPN

Location: Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa

Opponent: Iowa St. Cyclones

Uniform: Blue Helmets - White Uniforms - Blue Pants

Record in Old Uniform: 4-3

Record in Current Uniform: 0-1

The West Virginia Mountaineers will head to Ames wearing the same combination they wore when they took down Arizona State Sun Devils in the Cactus Bowl. The combination - blue/white/blue is one of the cleaner looks the Mountaineers feature. The Mountaineers have a better than .500 record in the combination. In the old pick-axe font days, the Mountaineers went 4-3 in this combination, but they started 0-3 before winning four straight games, starting with the aforementioned Cactus Bowl. They would go on to beat both Tennessee and Texas in this combination.

The Cyclones will match the Mountaineers with their blackout uniforms. Mountaineer fans should have PTSD with these uniforms as the Cyclones wore them in 2018 when they took the first wheel off the 2018 hype train and completely outclassed the Mountaineers in a night game.
