Tomorrow is a big day for the Mountaineer Football team. Not only will they be taking on the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl, but according to punter Tyler Sumpter, there will be a big announcement coming prior to or after kickoff.
Big announcement coming for tomorrow’s bowl game 👀🎥

This evening, Sumpter shared a tweet that stated there is a “big announcement” coming for tomorrow’s bowl game between WVU and Minnesota. Though he did not share nor hint at what the announcement may be, Sumpter does do videos for fellow teammates, which means we should expect something big.
Though there is no inside info on the situation, we certainly believe that this indicates that someone will be announcing their 2022 return to the football team. While we believe this will likely be a player with the opportunity to become a “super senior,” no player being considered for the 2022 NFL Draft should be overlooked.
We expect whatever this announcement is to come prior to the bowl matchup, but it could also come immediately after. No matter when it comes, tune back into Mountaineer Sports as we will bring you any breaking developments on the situation.
