THE SHOTGUN THROWDOWN: Could this week’s crowd create one of the greatest atmospheres in West Virginia football history?

Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions. Expect Milan Puskar Stadium to be full of rowdy fans and loud this Saturday. The Battle for the Black Diamond Trophy is coming back to Morgantown for the first time since 2005 and the game is officially sold out. After last week’s great showing by the WVU student body when the Mountaineers faced the measly Long Island Sharks, it is possible that the student sections could exceed capacity for this huge rivalry matchup and push the attendance over the 60,000-capacity mark. Saturday’s game will also be a Gold Rush for WVU, and gold rally towels will be provided upon entry to the game.
