Release the 1975 Peach Bowl on DVD sign now

In 1972, the NC State Wolf Pack dismantled West Virginia in the 5th edition of the Peach Bowl. Lou Holtz's squad handed the Mountaineers a devastating 49-13 final score, which still stands as WVU's worst postseason loss. It would take three years for the program to get to another bowl; then, in 1975, Bobby Bowden's team returned to Atlanta for the Peach Bowl. Their opponent: NC State, once again.

West Virginia was revamped, defensively. NC State would have the lead for most of the game, but only managed to score 10 points against a stubborn Mountaineer defense. The offense never gave up--down 10-6, with under eight minutes to go, West Virginia's QB, Dan Kendra, connected with receiver Scott MacDonald for a 50-yard touchdown pass. They scored the extra point, putting themselves on top of the Wolf Pack, 13-10. West Virginia's staunch defending prevented NC State from putting more points on the board; the Mountaineers' 4th quarter comeback avenged the previous loss.

Aside from a VHS tape reviewing the 1975 WVU football season (containing only a mere fraction of the game film), there are no officially released copies of the original broadcast. To all fans, you should sign this petition, since the bowl victory is a notable piece of Mountaineer lore. Hopefully, if the petition gets a high number of votes, it will convince the Mizlou television network and the Chick-Fil-A' Bowl committee to release the 1975 Peach Bowl on DVD. We, the Mountaineer Nation, need your signature! I will also be starting petitions for other WVU bowl wins that never had a DVD release, so look for them!

    While I would prefer a DVD, I don't think many of us would mind seeing it online only if making a DVD was too difficult or costly.
