West Virginia Fans Sing "Country Roads," World Peace Nearly Breaks out

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 22, 2016

Consider hearts warmed, and souls nice and toasted. 

Here is what happens when a whole bunch of right breaks out during a college football game. The crowd booms out a song in unison, bringing a smile to even Jay Cutler's face. 

A tip of the virtual hat to BuzzFeed for spotting the moment that comes after seeing your quarterback pass for a marathon of yards and a treasure trove of touchdowns. 

Yes, this is the scene after West Virginia pulled off a 70-63 win over Baylor, a game that saw QB Geno Smith pass for 656 yards and eight touchdowns. 

So I guess you could say the feelings were fairly positive in the stands after the game. 

It makes sense that the thousands in attendance would stand around and sing along to John Denver's "Country Roads."

It's these types of scenes that illustrate why college football continues to be the best fan experience in this nation. 

It's the only venue that is anywhere close to what they have going on at football games across the pond. Consider Liverpool fans singing You'll Never Walk Alone, or every moment of an EPL game that features singing and chanting. 

College football gets it, and it's beautiful.
