WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – The champs are back! The West Virginia Roughriders are making their long-awaited return return this Saturday night.

Coach Mook and owner Gregg Fornario both agree it’ll be great for the community. They also have something huge in store for the fans.

“From start to finish. So yeah come in and pack the house.”Coach Mook Zimmerman, West Virginia Roughriders
If you want to help pack the house, the alumni game is Saturday night at 7PM at WesBanco Arena. You can get your tickets at WesBanco’s website. The defending champs are planning to be back in 2022.
