Ranking West Virginia's Top Uniform Combos

Schuyler Callihan

The Mountaineers have worn many uniforms throughout the years including the gold jerseys returning in 2007, the Nike Pro Combat set in 2010, the debut of the all gray uniforms in 2012, and the always tradition blue and gold look. 

Today, I list my top five West Virginia uniform combos and no, I didn't put any with gray in my list. You're welcome, traditionalists. 

No. 5 Gold helmet, gold jersey, gold pants

The Mountaineers have yet to wear the "all gold" look in their newest set of uniforms, but I don't think it will be long before we see the banana suits return. This uniform is flashy for recruits and goes perfectly with the Gold Rush.

No. 4 Blue helmet, gold jersey, blue pants

This uni set has the perfect split of blue and gold and has often been used for "Stripe the Stadium" games as you could imagine why. This may be one of the most underrated of the top five, but it sure does have a sharp look.

No. 3 White helmet, white jersey, white pants

I know much of the fan base doesn't care for anything but the blue helmets, but you have to admit how clean this look is. West Virginia hasn't performed great in this uniform combo, but it still has a sweet look that recruits love.

I do like the alternate helmets, jerseys, pants, and so on, but deep down, I'm a traditional guy. This traditional road look hasn't been worn enough over the last decade and would love to see more of it.

Again, sticking with tradition. How could anyone have this combo anywhere BUT No. 1? So much history rides with this uniform set and once again, is a look that needs to be worn more often.

Classic Blue, Blue, Old Gold 100%. Never been a big Gold Rush fan either. The All White Storm Trooper unis could go with the White WVU Throwback helmets too. Nice.
