WVU Fans Singing John Denver’s "Country Roads" Is Just The Latest Instance Of College Football Fans Being Awesome (Videos)
For the most part, what took place within the 60 minutes of play during No. 9 West Virginia’s thrilling 70-63 victory over No. 25 Baylor on Saturday has received most of the attention. And rightfully so. After all, the game did see Mountaineers quarterback and Heisman front runner Geno Smith throw for a ridiculous 656 yards and eight touchdowns, while losing quarterback Nick Florence wasn’t too far off, with 581 yards and five touchdowns through the air. Oh, and there were also two receivers in the game that went for over 300 yards (WVU’s Stedman Bailey had 303 and Baylor’s Terrance Williams had 314).
But over the past couple of days, it is the post-game antics that have been gaining quite a bit of recognition, thanks to a recently uploaded YouTube video that features the WVU fans singing John Denver‘s “Take Me Home, Counrty Roads” following their win.

So, is this the coolest thing we have witnessed at a college football stadium? It may be, although, judging by the videos below, I’d say the people at Virginia Tech and Wisconsin would have something to say about that.
Here a look at the scene that unfolded at Camp Randall Stadium during Wisconsin’s victory over Nebraska last season.
And here’s my favorite: the fans at Lane Stadium erupting into a frenzy when Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” begins playing during the final moments of last year’s win over Miami.
If that doesn’t send chills down your spine, you may want to check your pulse.
