CONFIRMED: The Pride of WV Will Be in Attendance at Penn State

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West  Virginia Mountaineers will play in front of the largest crowd in program history this Saturday when the team travels to Penn State. Beaver Stadium, home of the Nittany Lions, has a maximum capacity of 106,572 people and approximately 95% of those in attendance will be supporting Penn State.

However, West Virginia has a secret weapon in the best marching band in the nation, “The Pride of West Virginia”, the Mountaineer Marching Band! It is now confirmed that The Pride will make the trip to Happy Valley for the team’s opener and will play a halftime show.

According to the band’s website, “the 300-plus member ‘Pride of West Virginia’ has performed throughout the United States from nationally televised Bowl games to Presidential inaugurations. During the past twenty years, the WVU Band has performed before more than one million people and has traveled to several major U.S. cities.”

West Virginia will face an uphill battle against a top ten team and in one of the most difficult environments in college football, but the Mountaineers will have the best damn marching band in the nation there supporting the team!

West Virginia plays at Penn State this Saturday, September 2, at 7:30PM. The game will be televised live on national television on NBC.
