Pat White vs Pat McAfee in the Gold and Blue Spring Game

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Moments ago, it was revealed on West Virginia Football’s official social media accounts that two of the Mountaineers’ all-time greatest players, Pat White and Pat McAfee, will return to Morgantown this weekend to coach the two opposing teams in the annual Gold and Blue Spring game!

White, who started at quarterback for the Mountaineers from 2005-2008, is perhaps West Virginia’s greatest player ever, and will coach the blue team. During his time at WVU, White started a total of 40 games during his 4-year career and had a career starting record of 35–8, which is unmatched by any quarterback in WVU history. In addition, he is the first quarterback to have started and won 4 consecutive bowl games and rushed for 4,480 career yards, which is second most among any quarterback in FBS history. White also accounted for 100+ touchdowns, which is a Big East record for any position.

McAfee, who was the kicker/punter for the Mountaineers from 2005-2008, is now one of the most popular sports media personalities in the world, will be the coach of the gold team tomorrow. McAfee had the following to say in his announcement on social media: “All I can think about right now is that Blaine Stewart and I are going to get a big W in the spring game this Saturday! GG (Garrett Greene) is about to run wild! The rest of the squad is about to be absolute dawgs! I can’t wait to get there to see all of you and meet all of you, let’s go!”

According to the official WVU Athletics website, “the Gold-Blue Spring Football Game will be televised on the Big 12 Now on ESPN+ platform at noon. Nick Farrell will handle the play-by-play duties, Rasheed Marshall will provide analysis and Anjelica Trinone will be an on-site reporter.
