West Virginia plays full-speed football for the first time since November

(WOAY)- On Saturday morning, West Virginia played full speed, tackle football for the first time since November 29th, when the Mountaineers defeated TCU in the 2019 regular season finale.

The team held a two-hour, 80-plus play scrimmage in Milan-Puskar Stadium as they ramp up preparation for the season opener against Eastern Kentucky in three weeks. It had been 267 days since the team played full-tilt football. It was also the first time the whole team practiced together since March 12th. Up to this point, the team was split into two groups for fall camp.

As practice intensity increases, West Virginia received positive news regarding COVID-19 testing. Brown says that all 150-plus tests conducted over the past week came back negative. However, he knows his team isn’t out of the woods yet as more and more students return to Morgantown.
