West Virginia revealed new alternate uniforms on Monday that generated a lot of positive feedback from players, recruits and social media. The Mountaineers will debut the uniform against Pitt in the Backyard Brawl on Sept. 1.
The state’s 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.

It’s a phenomenal alternate. It’s clean with the changes really being minor, but noticeable and significant enough to see an improvement.
More importantly, it’s very obviously a WVU uniform. Not just the colors, but the state on the helmet and country roads, clearly WVU. https://t.co/dGeUH8Uv3m
