Sports at the University of West

Sports at the University of West Virginia can be traced back over 100 years to 1891, when a group of students organized the first football game at the University. Over time, the University has become established as a perennial power in college sports, especially the Big East Conference.

The University has enjoyed success in basketball, particularly back in the 1940s and 1950s. In 1942, the Mountaineers won the then-prestigious NIT championship with a 47-45 victory over Western Kentucky. Seventeen years later, in 1959, West Virginia played for the NCAA championship. Led by future NBA legend Jerry West, the Mountaineers lost 71-70 to the California Golden Bears. Despite the loss, Jerry West of the Mountaineers was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. In 2007, the Mountaineers again played for the NIT championship and once again came away with a victory, this time by the score of 78-73 over Clemson.

After the 2007 season, basketball coach John Beilein took over the head coaching position at Michigan. In his five seasons at WVU, the team went 104-60 and had three straight seasons of 20-plus wins. He was replaced by Bob Huggins, former coach of both Cincinnati and Kansas State.

The West Virginia football program has seen its share of success as well. In 1988, the Mountaineers had an undefeated regular season and were invited to play in the Fiesta Bowl to face the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Notre Dame won the game 34-21. The 1993 season was another fabulous one for the Mountaineers. The team went 11-0 during the regular season including a win over #4 Miami. West Virginia accepted an invitation to the Sugar Bowl to play Florida but lost the game 41-7.

The coach during those successful years was Don Nehlen. In 21 season at WVU, he compiled a 149-93-4 record including two 11-1 seasons, one conference championship and 13 bowl appearances.

Nehlen was succeeded by Rich Rodriguez. Under Rodriguez, the Mountaineers have become an even more formidable force in college football. Since his first season in 2001, West Virginia has a record of 62-26 and has won four conference titles.

The design of the West Virginia Mountaineers Fleece: Squares is composed of the University's logos and the Mountaineer mascot over a blue and yellow squared background.
