MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Bowl week has arrived for WVU, and head coach Neal brown says the Mountaineers are excited for one last challenge in 2020 against a tough opponent.
West Virginia will take on Army Thursday at 4 p.m. in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
Brown thinks it’s a great matchup that will make for an intriguing contest — one that might draw a lot of attention from college football fans across the country.
“It’s a great challenge, but also for our guys and our program, I think it’s a tremendous opportunity for our team,” Brown said. “There’s gonna be a lot of attention on this game. I would maybe even say it’s gonna be the most-watched bowl game outside of the national semifinals, and I understand and our kids understand that there probably won’t be a whole lot of people outside of the state of West Virginia that are pulling for us. It’s gonna be a fun afternoon, and we’re looking forward to finishing the season down in Memphis.”
Brown discussed the Black Knights in detail Sunday during the team’s latest media session. Watch his remarks at the top of this page.
