West Virginia pulled off an incredible rally against Texas Tech on Saturday, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with that old John Denver classic.
The Mountaineers sing “Take Me Home, Country Roads” at every home game, but this one felt special after a comeback 46-35 win against the Red Raiders.
