Well don’t say Neal Brown is afraid of a challenge, because with this uniform combination, he now looks to break three different streaks on Saturday. He is looking to snap a 3-game losing streak, a 7-game road losing streak and a 2-game losing streak in this uniform combination. He certainly doesn’t like things easy.
The West Virginia Mountaineers have only worn their traditional road uniforms twice since they switched to this new version of the uniform, once against Oklahoma State in 2016 and against the Missouri Tigers in 2019.
Neal Brown, at his roots, is a traditionalist and this is a good move for him to try and invoke a little bit of nostalgia and good will as the team struggles to find its way. If the team can find a way to win on Saturday, three different streaks will end and the Mountaineers may just find themselves looking for holiday plans in December.
