Gold and Blue Nation

College football has returned in Morgantown, even under “surreal” circumstances.

In a nearly empty Milan Puskar Stadium, Neal Brown and the Mountaineers thumped Eastern Kentucky 56-10 to move to 1-0 on the year. After the game, Brown remarked that he’s “very grateful” to have an opportunity to coach his team in competitions once again.

“Just playing college football is a win, and I mean that,” Brown said. “To win and win big is a bonus.”

The head coach also broke down his team’s play in the victory, which included a number of noteworthy performances:

  • West Virginia’s offense logged more than 600 yards on the day, including 329 yards on the ground
  • Graduate transfer Tony Fields led WVU in tackles in his Mountaineer debut
  • Another Mountaineer newcomer, Alonzo Addae, came up with a first half interception, which Brown dubbed the play of the game
