The Mountaineers Play Here! MSN is your home for all of the excitement of West Virginia football. Week after week, MSN’s complete coverage of the Mountaineers has been a state tradition for more than five decades.

Football on MSN begins with two popular pregame shows “MSN Pregame” and “The Mountaineers Today,” featuring insights with Coach Dana Holgorsen, WVU assistant coaches and Mountaineer players starting 60 minutes prior to kickoff. The network’s coverage continues with an extensive halftime show, and extends well after the final play into the locker room for postgame interviews that provide insight from WVU
coaches and players.
Fans outside the coverage area will once again be able to listen to Mountaineer games live on the Internet by logging on to WVUsports.com. MSN’s coverage of Mountaineer football is also available on Sirius Satellite Radio.
