The Mountaineers have registered 79 winning seasons in their history, with 35 of those seasons resulting in eight victories or more, 17 seasons resulting in at least nine victories, and eight seasons with ten victories or more. On December 10, 1979, West Virginia introduced Don Nehlen as its new head coach, the 30th coach in the program's history. Coinciding with Nehlen's hire was the construction of the second incarnation of Mountaineer Field, the program's current home stadium. The result would forever change the culture of Mountaineer football. The onset of the Dana Holgorsen era brought about heightened expectations for the program as the Mountaineers entered the 2011 season. The potential for a prolific offensive attack under Holgorsen's guise coupled with West Virginia's selection as the odds-on favorite to win the Big East title provided optimism for a return to a BCS bowl game for the first time since 2007.
