Mountaineer Mantrip

The Mountaineer Mantrip is a nod to the state’s proud coal industry and heritage and begins when the team is dropped off approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes before kickoff at the corner of the WVU Medical Center and Don Nehlen Drive.

West Virginia fans are encouraged to line the path, which will take the team and coaching staff, led by head coach Dana Holgorsen, between the blue and light blue lots and to the entrance of the Northeast gate at Milan Puskar Stadium.

The team is escorted by the Mountaineer mascot, the cheerleading squad and members of the Pride of West Virginia, the WVU marching band, on its route. The Mantrip, named after the shuttle that typically transports miners down into an underground mine at the start of their shift, has become an annual tradition during home games at Milan Puskar Stadium.
