WVU Football Goes True Blue for Military Appreciation Game



WVU true blue American flag helmet uniform

Deciding what uniform combination to wear this week was one of the easiest decisions yet for the WVU football program. In keeping up with theme of Military Appreciation, the Mountaineers will go full true blue against BYU.

After wearing all sorts of different combinations this season, West Virginia will be decked out in blue on blue on blue on Saturday night. That means a blue helmet, blue jersey and blue pants. But this week, an American flag in the shape of the state of West Virginia will be in place of the usual WV logo.

Gold will serve as the secondary color for the numbers, Big 12 and Nike logos and outlines.

Originally scheduled to be televised on FS1, the game will now air on FOX. And of course, the Mountaineers will be back playing under the lights at night.

Winning their first noon game of the season earned the Mountaineers another opportunity to be in a prime-time once again. Hours after West Virginia beat UCF 41-28on Saturday afternoon, the Big 12 announced WVU will be play another night game.

The game will kickoff at 7 pm ET from Milan Puskar
Stadium in Morgantown.

West Virginia now sits at 5-3 (3-2) and is one win shy of bowl eligibility, something the program failed to achieve last season. A win and WVU clinches a postseason opportunity with their sixth win of the season.
