There’s a dress code at Milan Puskar Stadium this fall for West Virginia University home football games.
Fans learned what colors they should be wearing to three games on the schedule when the University announced dates for its Gold Rush, Stripe the Stadium and True Blue promotions.
Anyone who makes it through the gates is asked to sport his or her brightest gold garb for a non-conference meeting with Maryland as the border battle comes to Morgantown on Sept. 26.
The Mountaineers lead the series with a 27-22-2 record against the Terrapins, needing a game-winning field goal from Josh Lambert to get the victory in College Park last season. WVU hasn’t played Maryland at home since the 2012 season.
Half of the fans will ditch the gold in favor of blue for another Stripe the Stadium effort on Oct. 10 as the Mountaineers look to secure a third-straight win over Oklahoma State.
Fans in even-numbered sections, Touchdown Terrace and the upper level student section should wear gold while odd-numbered sections and the lower student sections are asked to put on the blue.
Everyone can then leave the gold at home on Nov. 14 when Texas visits for a True Blue game. It’s the second time the Longhorns have come to Morgantown, taking the Mountaineers to overtime to secure a comeback victory on the road.
“Mountaineer fans will have several opportunities to display their pride at home games this season,” said Matt Wells, WVU Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs. “From the Gold Rush to Stripe the Stadium to the return of True Blue, we are looking forward to seeing our fans create a tremendous game day atmosphere at Milan Puskar Stadium in 2015.”
The season opens on Sept. 5 with WVU hosting Georgia Southern at 7:30 p.m.
