Mountaineer Nation is getting psyched for this weekend’s season opener for West Virginia football, and so are we!
The Mountaineers kick their year off on Saturday against the James Madison Dukes at 2 p.m. at Milan Puskar Stadium. With a plethora of new faces on both teams, Anjelica Trinone and Nick Farrell are here to get you caught up and in the loop.
T.J. Eck, the sports director from WHSV in Virginia, joins us to give us some of his own insight into the Dukes, and *spoiler alert* they may not be the typical “cupcake” opponent for week one. In fact, JMU will not only return several of their starters from last year, but they are currently the No. 2 team in the nation for FCS football.
Throughout the season, WVi will need your help by getting involved in MGD Xtra. Help get our conversation going by sending in your questions for Nick and Anjelica to discuss. Simply comment on our Facebook posts or send us a tweet using the hashtag #AskMGDXtra and we’ll be sure to feature it on the show. Whether it’s on football, hoops, food, the weather, or pumpkin spice at Starbucks — send it in, and we’ll answer it!
If you enjoyed the debut episode of MGD Xtra, don’t forget to tune in next Wednesday as we discuss the Mountaineers’ matchup against Missouri!
