Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Capital Classic

Rival Team: Marshall Thundering Herd

Every year the Mountaineers and Thundering Herd square off in the state capital. West Virginia and Marshall first met in 1929. However, the matchup didn’t become a regular fixture until 1978. The Mountaineers hold a 33-11 lead in the all-time series, but you’ll always be in for a good matchup when these two meet.

Backyard Brawl

Rival Team: Pittsburgh Panthers

The Mountaineers and Pitt had one of the most intense rivalries in college sports up until 2012 when the Big East disbanded. The two teams have met 184 times with the Mountaineers holding a 96-88 lead in the all-time series, so don’t miss it when the series kicks off again.

West Virginia vs Maryland

Rival Team: Maryland Terrapins

The rivalry between West Virginia and Maryland began in 1926 and is one of the few rivalries that for the most part has been a non-conference rivalry. The two teams only played in the same conference from 1950 to 1953, but that hasn’t stopped them from developing a fierce rivalry over the years.
