West Virginia Mountaineers Football Details
Expectations weren’t particularly high for the West Virginia University football team entering the 2016 season, with many analysts speculating that the team would finish with fewer than the eight wins that it had posted the year prior. Someone forgot to tell head coach Dana Holgorsen and his Mountaineers, though, as WVU roared to a 6-0 start, rose into the top 10 national rankings multiple times throughout the season and finished with a 10-3 record, their best since 2011. Further validation came a few months after the season when, at the 2017 NFL Draft, cornerback Rasul Butler and wide receiver Shelton Gibson were both selected by the Philadelphia Eagles. The Mountaineers figure to be at least as strong in 2017. Running back Justin Crawford is the Big 12’s leading returning rusher, having put up 1,184 yards as a junior (including a 331-yard game against Oklahoma). There will be new blood under center, where transfer quarterback Will Grier will take the reins after transferring from Florida.
With 737 all-time program victories entering 2017, WVU has the 14th-most victories of any FBS programs. They’ve won 15 conference titles throughout their history, most recently taking back-to-back Big East crowns in 2010 and 2011. Thirty-eight Mountaineers have been named First-Team All-Americans, with receiver Kevin White and safety Mario Alford both claiming the honor in 2014. West Virginia plays its games at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium, a venue that holds 60,000 fans. Singer John Denver was present at the field’s dedication in 1980; his hit “Country Roads” has been a gameday tradition since.
