No Home Night Games for the 2021 WVU Football Team



MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The last time West Virginia football played a primetime, home game was during the Week 12 loss to a then-No. 6 Oklahoma Sooner team in 2018.

The Big 12 Conference just announced that the record will live to see another season. 2021 will roll to a close without Milan Puskar Stadium hosting a home night game, as the conference announced WVU’s final home game against Texas will kickoff at 12 p.m. EST on Nov. 20.

Head coach Neal Brown sits at 35-27 in day games, and has posted a 27-12 home record since 2019. Even still, the Texas Longhorns are never truly an easy opponent. The Longhorns and Mountaineers have the series tied at five, and will clash in 2021 following a 17-13 WVU loss last season.

These two rivals, both 4-5 at this point in the season, will meet live on ESPN2. The Texas Longhorns, most likely entering Morgantown 5-5 after a Kansas Jayhawks win, will meet a potentially 5-5 Mountaineer team coming off a matchup with the Kansas State Wildcats on Nov. 13.
