2016 Football Season in Review

The Mountaineers celebrated their 125th season in 2016 complete with a logo to mark the occasion. The logo was also on the side of the helmets during the season opener against Mizzou. During the season WVU broke out a few new combos including; blue pants with gold helmets & jerseys. A few "classic" combinations were worn (Blue helmet and jerseys with gold pants / Blue helmet white jersey and gold pants) which was great to see.

The black helmets in both the blue helmet and jersey still feel out of place. Speaking of the blue helmets; they were adorned with musket merit decals which was a nice touch and a call back to the Nehlen era. The blue helmets were also wore for all but 5 games this season. Finally to note the "throwback" decals which were normally worn once a season since 2013 were absent. It will be interesting to see if any changes are made during the offseason now that Nike has 2 "newer" uniform templates.
