NFL Superstar Says West Virginia Should Have Won the Backyard Brawl

Morgantown, West Virginia – Earlier today, Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared on The Pat McAfee Show. 

The topic of the Backyard Brawl came up and Rodgers said what all West Virginia fans have been thinking since the game ended: “The Mountaineers should have won that game.”

Rodgers, who admitted that he accidentally stumbled onto the game when searching for the Serena and Venus Williams’ tennis match last night, said that West Virginia looked impressive and that they had the game won. Rodgers also said that he has a connection to the team in West Virginia’s offensive coordinator Graham Harrell, who he called “the legend.”

McAfee, who insists that Reese Smith made the catch near the endzone in the final moments of the game, said that he was proud of the team’s effort and he’s excited to watch the Mountaineers play this season.
