MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia Mountaineers (0-1) will take on the Long Island University Sharks (0-1) at 5:05 p.m. EST. WVU’s home opener welcomes the Sharks to a full-capacity Milan Puskar Stadium, an atmosphere that the newly-inducted FCS school has never been in. Head coach Neal Brown’s WVU team is ready for revenge after a brutal 30-24 road loss at Maryland that opened the 129th season of WVU football.
If you aren’t keen to tailgate in the Blue Lot and would rather opt for a game day spread and cheering on the Mountaineers from your couch, there are a few ways to tune in.
