The West Virginia Mountaineers will kick off the 2020 Coronavirus season wearing white lids with blue shirts and blue pants. They haven’t worn this combination much, last wearing it in the 2017 season against Delaware State. The first time this combination was worn, the Mountaineers lost to the Texas Longhorns in 2013. That is their only loss in this combination. Since then, they have beaten Texas, Kansas Jayhawks and Delaware State.

The last time a Mountaineer quarterback wore this combination, Touchdown Jesus Will Grier threw for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns, former running back Justin Crawford ran for 100 yards and Gary Jennings caught 6 passes for 128 yards in a comfortable 59-16 win.
