Look: West Virginia Reveals New Uniforms to Debut in Backyard Brawl

Published

on

West Virginia has released new alternate uniforms that will debut on Sept. 1 against Pitt in the Backyard Brawl.

The new look has the current font while including old school stripes and more gold. The West Virginia state logo is on the helmet.

 

The state’s country roads are outlined in the stripes on the numbers, helmets, sleeves and pants with a special emphasis placed on interstate 79 which connects the two schools. The words “Cue Country Roads” surround the neck on the inside of the jersey.

The Backyard Brawl is now just 73 days away which is when West Virginia will debut these uniforms. West Virginia will walk into Heinz Field as an underdog against Pitt. The opening line for West Virginia is set at 6.5 point underdogs.

West Virginia is heading into year four under head coach Neal Brown. Brown led the Mountaineers to a Guaranteed Rate Bowl appearance last December, losing to Minnesota 18-6.

Despite this, Brown has continued to produce decent recruiting classes. As of June 20, the Mountaineers have a top 20 recruiting class for 2023, which would be the best under Brown’s tenure in Morgantown.

Though that ranking will likely change when the date gets closer, with schools such as Alabama and Texas, among others, having more four and five stars currently, but are ranked lower due to having less total commitments.

On Sept. 1, West Virginia will look to continue their three-game winning streak against Pittsburgh in style. Pittsburgh leads the all-time series 61-40-3, but West Virginia has led it 7-5 since the turn of the century.
