Some call West Virginia fans singing “Country Roads” the best tradition in college sports. Others dread hearing the song because it means the Mountaineers won.
So why is BYU head coach Kalani Sitake looking forward to hearing the famous song synonymous with WVU? Well, it appears Sitake may need a quick lesson on the tradition and what hearing that song actually means.
Why? Because the coach of West Virginia’s upcoming opponent said this. “Looking forward to hearing them all sing. You know, it’s going to be nice hearing them all sing Take Me Home, Country Roads,” said Sitake during his weekly press conference on Monday.

That’s a facepalm moment for sure.
All kidding aside, the Mountaineers (5-3, 3-2) and Cougars (5-3, 2-3) will battle on Saturday night in Morgantown. Kickoff from Milan Puskar Stadium is set for 7 pm ET.
Will Sitake and his team hear “Country Roads” after all? WVU is considered a heavy favorite in the game.
