It has been an exciting week in Morgantown and we are gearing up for an awesome Watch Party here in Houston on Saturday!
The WVU Women’s Soccer Team clinched their third straight Big 12 Regular Season Championship Title on Sunday.
ESPN’s College GameDay announced they were making the trek to Morgantown for a huge top 20 match-up between TCU and WVU on Saturday and the students started camping out Sunday afternoon (of course they taking turns holding their places in line so they can attend classes)! Our favorite country music singer, Brad Paisley will be the guest picker! Lee Corso will be making his 250th headgear selection on Saturday – he better pick that coonskin cap!! Tapings for various ESPN shows will begin tomorrow at 8 am CST., from the GameDay set and will continue periodically throughout the day until the conclusion of College Football Live, which begins at 1:30 pm CST. ESPN will televise the show on Saturday morning from 8 – 11 am CST.
On Tuesday, the WVU Football team earned the honors of ranking 20th in the first ever College Football Playoff Rankings. Our team has come A LONG way since last year!!
While I know every single one of us wants to be in Morgantown this weekend, the next best place to be is with your Houston Mountaineer Family!
We want encourage everyone to join us at the Houston Texans Grille on Saturday at 2:30 pm to cheer our Mountaineers to victory and sing Country Roads!!
Our first ever Pepperoni Roll Contest will take place during halftime! If you’d like to participate, register here by 5 PM tomorrow. We also need a few judges – let me know if you are interested in making the tough decisions on Saturday. For more information, please view the attached sheet.
We will also kickoff our annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive. For each new toy donated, you will receive one ticket for a special drawing in December.
Mark your calendars!
