Everyone knows the tradition of following a Mountaineer win at Milan Puskar Stadium with Country Roads is one of the best in college football. In fact, Country Roads has became such a hit that it’s catching on at Lane Stadium as well.
At one of the Hokies’ recent practices they blasted the song while the players were stretching. It was cranked up extremely loud, but the players don’t look to be giving it the time of day. Most of them probably have no idea what the song even means.

???? RIVALRY RENEWED ????
It just got REAL❗️
