2012 Season Information

Since its inception in 1901, the award-winning WVU Band has dramatically evolved in size, reputation, membership diversity, and performance style/quality. The band's reputation around the University, the state, the region, and the nation shows that we are firmly established as one of the premier collegiate marching bands!

This upcoming 2012 season is going to be filled with great music, challenging drill moves, and lasting friendships. As you may know, expectations are high for our football team once again this season as the Mountaineers are moving into The BIG XII Conference! Coming off of our big Orange Bowl victory and with most of the weapons returning in our high-powered offense, such as Tavon Austin and Heisman Trophy candidate Geno Smith, Coach Holgorsen and the guys are ready for our inaugural season in the BIG XII!

Our home football schedule this year is both challenging and exciting as we again have seven home games, with several national TV appearances and big games including WVU's first Big XII Conference game vs. Baylor, a visit by in-state foe Marshall, other conference games against Kansas, TCU, and Kansas State, and the big game against perennial powerhouse and 2008 Fiesta Bowl victim Oklahoma!

We have a fun and rewarding travel schedule that features several high school demo shows around the region and an enjoyable away game trip to our Nation's Capital; the James Madison game at "FedEX Field" - the home of the NFL's Washington Redskins in Washington, D.C.! We have balanced the schedule to the best of our ability and have managed to keep as many open weekends as possible.

As usual, we will end the season with our annual concerts and band banquet as we head down the home stretch to what will hopefully be our 11th consecutive bowl game! Things are shaping up for another outstanding performance season for "The Pride!"
