West Virginia’s ‘Country Roads’ Uniform Ranked Among Best Alternate Uniforms



The Mountaineers may not have played well enough to have a winning season throughout 2022, but they did look good regardless, at least according to a list ranking uniforms.

West Virginia, a program that switches up combinations of color and designs every week, received cognition for the “Country Roads” uniforms they wore in the Week 1 Backyard Brawl. Uniform Authority ranked the “Country Roads” themed look by Nike as the seventh best alternate uniform of the 2022 college football season.

This look incorporated a white based helmet, white jersey and white pants. It also had blue for the numbers and blue and gold stripes on the pants and down the middle of the helmet. A new WV logo with a map of the state of West Virginia was placed on the sides of the helmet.

The WVU program credits Matt Wells, executive senior associate athletics director for external affairs, Michael Fragale, senior associate athletics director for communications, Joe Swan, director of athletics publications, Kristin Coldsnow, athletics’ lead in-house graphic designer and former department staffers Keli and Nathaniel Zinn with the concept.

Unfortunately for the Mountaineers, this uniform combination was not a winning one on the field. WVU lost the first meeting with Pitt in a decade 38-31.
