WVU Mountaineers Win the Discover Orange Bowl

Posted: Updated:

We can debate the importance we place on college athletics, but it's pretty clear that everyone in this state has an extra spring in their step today after West Virginia University's record-setting win in last night's Orange Bowl.

Our young men represented this state with class and proved, once again, that with grit, determination and hard work, you can prove the naysayers wrong every, single time.

This was a great win for our team and proves that when we're given a chance to shine on the national stage, we burn with vivid intensity.

Coach Dana Holgerson said it best after the game: "the future is pretty bright in West Virginia."
