Threads: White Helmet - White Jerseys - Gold Pants

For the first time in four years, the white/white/gold combination will be unleashed, this time on Neal Brown’s former Big 12 team, the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The Mountaineers have only worn this combination one other time, a gutshot defeat 45-41 against Oklahoma State back in 2018. It seems that the Backyard Brawl edition of the helmets will be our go-to for white helmets and the team seems determined to get the most out of those helmets this year.
Saturday’s game will be the annual “John Denver Bowl”, determining who gets the bragging rights to the former folk singer who’s song “Country Roads” can be heard after many West Virginia home victories. If you missed it, West Virginia any gained a new fan when former Texas A&M lineman Jay Arnold was in town for the Baylor game and got to experience all of Country Roads in its glory.
