Don’t miss the return of this 109-year-old rivalry between the West Virginia University Mountaineers and the Virginia Tech Hokies as they face off at Milan Puskar Stadium for the first time since 2017. Head to Morgantown, WV, on September 18, 2021, to see these titans of Appalachian football take the field once again, and revisit all that is old and new in the heart of Mountaineer Country.
Fans of the University and the state alike will find that all of their favorites are better than ever. Renovations at the historic Hotel Morgan have not only brought new life but new opportunities for game day fun in Downtown Morgantown. Then, let time slow down completely when you tee up for 18-holes of golf at the iconic Lakeview Golf Resort on Cheat Lake. Fuel your trip down memory lane with a quick lunch or dinner at local favorites like Wings Ole Specialty Restaurant and Mario’s Fishbowl. Finally, make moments last a lifetime with a selfie or two taken at the overlook of Coopers Rock State Forest.
Embrace the Mountaineer spirit as you explore new sights and attractions while in town for the game. Experience a reintroduction to modern comforts at the newly-built Cranberry hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection property near Cheat Lake. Reach for new heights at Gritstone Climbing + Fitness or dive into Olympic-sized fun at The Aquatic Center at Mylan Park. Then, sample new flavors at local hotspots like The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grill and Crab Shack Caribba’s newest location in Morgantown. Finally, explore exotic finds at River Fair Trade Boutique and vibrant public art displays popping up throughout Downtown Morgantown.
