By Staff | Jul 9, 2014

West Virginia’s Big 12 Conference opener against Oklahoma on Saturday, Sept. 20 will be the ‘Stripe the Stadium’ game at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Fans sitting in even-numbered sections (Sec. 102, 104, 202, 204 etc.), Touchdown Terrace, and WVU students seated in the upper level student sections are encouraged to wear GOLD to the game.

Conversely, fans sitting in odd-numbered sections (Sec. 101, 103, 201, 203, etc.) and WVU students seated in the lower level student sections are encouraged to wear BLUE to the game.

The WVU-Kansas football game on Saturday, Oct. 4, is a “Gold Rush”, presented by EZToUse.com. All fans are encouraged to wear gold for the league matchup with the Jayhawks on Homecoming.

“The ‘Stripe the Stadium’ and Gold-Rush promotions have been a great ways to show how much pride Mountaineer fans have in our football program,” says Matt Wells, Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs. “These two promotions really do show our Mountaineer spirit on national television.”

The matchup with Towson has been designated as “Family Day” with four tickets and a $25 concessions voucher available for $150 per package. Fans attending the Towson game also will be treated to a fireworks display.

“Family Day is a great deal for our fans,” says Wells, “It gives families an outstanding way to spend time together at our home opener at a discounted price. Not only do they get to see the Mountaineers, but also get $25 in concessions for refreshments and a fireworks show, as well. We hope fans will take advantage of this opportunity and help us pack Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium.”

Single-game tickets and mini-packages will go on sale Monday, July 7, at 9 a.m. Visit WVUGAME.com or call 1-800-WVU GAME for more information.
