If you've never been to a Mountaineer football game, you're missing out.
At WVU, we’re lucky to have one of the nation’s best traditions – the singing of
“Country Roads.” Did you know: fans around the world ranked it as the 10th-best
college football tradition? Yep, it’s that cool.
“Take Me Home, Country Roads,” the song sung by John Denver, has been performed
at every home football since 1972. After victories in Milan Puskar Stadium,
fans stay, join together in a sway and shout
the lyrics of the song.
In 1980, Denver himself performed his hit song during pre-game festivities to a
sold-out crowd of Mountaineer fans – a memory your parents might cherish if they
grew up cheering on WVU.
