After dropping a tease with a preview earlier in the day, WVU decided to unveil the full jersey of the new Country Roads uniforms for the 2023 season on Wednesday night. It’s now time to compare the two versions.

West Virginia revealed their new uniform style in 2022 before the return of the Backyard Brawl. The Mountaineers wore the uniforms against Pitt and Virginia Tech last season, going 1-1 in the white.

The new uniform is the same style but with the West Virginia gold color. The “Mountaineers” across the chest replaces “West Virginia” in the same placement. The state’s literal 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.

Most are assuming this jersey will be worn with blue pants. It’s expected that West Virginia will wear the Country Roads uniform against Pitt this season. WVU and Pitt will play on Saturday, Sept. 16 at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Backyard Brawl will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on ABC.
