After eight seasons with Dana Holgorsen at the helm, the West Virginia Mountaineers took the field on Saturday with a new head coach.
Neal Brown led the team onto the gridiron for the first time for the annual spring game. 18,865 people showed up to watch the action — which is the third-highest spring game attendance in program history.
At the end of the day, the gold team came away with the 25-9 victory over the blue team. After the game, Brown said that the outcome was about what he expected.
“I think it was a typical spring game. I think there were some really good aspects on the field and some things that we need to get corrected before we line up to play James Madison at the end of August,” he said.
The Mountaineers will return to the field this summer, and open up their season on August 31st against James Madison.
