The #2 ranked LSU Tigers Football Team soundly defeated the West Virginia Mountaineers 47 to 21 at Mountaineer Field in Morgantown, West Virginia to remain undefeated at 4-0.   Mountaineer Fans were dressed in their school Gold colors to paint the entire stadium Gold with clusters of Purple from the over 7,500 LSU fans who traveled to Morgantown, WV.

West Virginia Mountaineer Fans Wear Gold to Support their Mountaineers

It was this writers first visit to Morgantown for a West Virginia football game at Milan Puskar Stadium.  I was not dissapointed in anyway.  The West Virginia Fans were extremely friendly and proved to be very SEC fan passionate about their Mountaineers.  I was fortunate to receive an invitation from an LSU Fan who had received an invitation to tailgate with a large group of Mountain Fans.  This group of Mountaineers have been tailgating together for many years.  They had one of the best set ups for tailgating I’ve ever experienced on an out of conference road trip and they know their Whiskey!  This obviously has something to do with the name of their tailgate “Coughing Corner”.  It was great to learn so much about the history of West Virginia Football and how passionate they are for their Mountaineers. Thanks for the warm welcome from this great group of ‘Neer Fans who know how to roll out the Gold carpet to a visiting LSU Tiger!

It was a short walk to the stadium thru may Mountaineer Fans and Tailgaters.  Everyone was very friendly to this Tiger before, during and after the game.  After finding my seat in the upper deck of section 203 near the top I was happy to see what a great view I had of the stadium and game.  The Mountaineer Band was very entertaining and good.  I just wish the stadium managers would get rid of the piped in music that keeps blaring loudly, I would much prefer to hear the band!  The game started out quick for LSU racing to a 14-0 lead which brought the Mountaineer crowd noise down a few decibels until the 3rd quarter when West Virginia closed to with in 6 points.  After that LSU pulled away for good for another LSU win and the #1 ranking coming out the next day.

I’m including some of my pictures all taken on game day.  I was lucky enough to get the sequence of Tyrann Mathieu’s interception right before the half.  I can now check off  Morgantown as another great College Football game day experience!  Thanks again to all the West Virginia Fans who treated so many of us Tigers so well!!!
