On Friday night, WVU head coach Bob Huggins will host the 10th edition of his Fish Fry at Mylan Park with Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports. The event is presented by Little General, with the proceeds going towards the Norma Mae Huggins Endowment, Remember the Miners and WVU Cancer Institute.

Tickets are $130 per person, with students being charged $65. A pay-per-view stream of the event can be purchased for $79.99. The menu for the night is sponsored by the Boston Beanery.

Huggins and Portnoy have teamed up together to find out how good the pizza is in Morgantown. If you’re not familiar with Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, tries different pizzas around the country with his one-bite rule and rates it on a scale from 1-10. Huggins released Twitter polls earlier in the month to determine which pizzas Portnoy will grade.

A message from the Bob Huggins Fish Fry website:

Join us for the 2022 Fish Fry and help Coach Bob Huggins raise a record $1 million to commemorate the event’s 10-year anniversary!

WVU Men’s Basketball Head Coach Bob Huggins welcomes fans, friends and cancer survivors to the Fish Fry each year to support causes he cares about while enjoying good company and delicious food. Proceeds from the event, presented by Little General Stores, benefit the Norma Mae Huggins Endowment at the WVU Cancer Institute and Remember the Miners Flagship Scholars Program.

Contributions to the Fish Fry have grown steadily since its inception, rising to just under $1 million annually. As the event marks its 10-year anniversary on Feb. 18, 2022, Coach Huggins is eager to make history by achieving a new philanthropic milestone at the biggest, boldest and most impactful Fish Fry yet.
