WEST VIRGINIA MOUNTAINEERS PANORAMIC MILAN PUSKAR STADIUM STRIPE THE STADIUM 1st BIG 12 GAME
This panorama, taken by Christopher Gjevre, captures the West Virginia Mountaineers making their Big 12 debut against the Baylor Bears. Mountaineer fans marked the event with the first-ever "Stripe the Stadium" promotion and wore either gold or blue, based on where they were sitting in the stadium. In addition to the Mountaineers' success on the field, Homecoming festivities added to the jubilation in Morgantown. The first football homecoming celebrations date back to 1921, with the first Homecoming queen crowned in 1939. The West Virginia Mountaineers play football at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium, which opened in 1980 and seats 60,000 fans making it the largest "city" in West Virginia on game days and the largest on-campus facility in the BIG EAST Conference. Mountaineer Field was constructed in 1980 for $22 million. After a private donation by pharmaceutical entrepreneur Milan Puskar in 2004, his name was added to the stadium.
West Virginia University, founded in 1867 in Morgantown, West Virginia, offers 185 majors and enrolls more than 32,000 students., spotlights the West Virginia Mountaineers scoring a touchdown at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Mountaineers began their illustrious football history in 1891 and have won well over a dozen conference championships, recorded unbeaten and untied regular seasons in 1988 and 1993, and produced the first consecutive 11-win seasons in school history in the 2005-07 seasons. One of the most recognizable traditions of WVU football is the singing of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads.” After every Mountaineer victory, the fans stay in the stands and sing along with the football team.
