MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia football fans will be asked to make a bit of a fashion statement this year as the program enters the Big 12.

On Friday, the university announced plans for the annual Gold Rush game, which will take place when the Mountaineers welcome Oklahoma to Milan Puskar Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 17. Prior to that, though, there is a brand new idea that WVU has not yet tried at Mountaineer Field.

"Stripe the Stadium" is an attempt on the university's part to get alternating sections to wear different colors. The stadium striping is set to take place in WVU's first game in the Big 12 when Baylor pays a visit to Morgantown on Sept. 29.

Now be sure to pay attention, folks, because this one requires that you actually know what section you're in. You can't just show up wearing the same color as everyone else.

Fans in odd-numbered sections, like 103, 105, 207, etc. are asked to arrive wearing blue. Conversely, the fans seated in even sections -- 102, 104, you get it -- should show up in gold.

Student seated in the upper level should all put on their gold, while those in the lower section need to be decked out in blue.

Got it?

Well, in case you don't quite get it, WVU was kind enough to send out a flyer detailing exactly what color should be in which section. So those of you who already know precisely where your seats are located, you can begin to lay out your outfit on your bed now to get ready for the big welcome to the Big 12.

You can see the flyer to the right of this post, then be sure to print it out, stick it on your refrigerator or your bathroom mirror or post it on all the telephone poles in your neighborhood.

Did we mention there are 50 days until the season begins?
