The Mountaineers have thousands of fans, but Calacino's in Beckley is one local business that relies on them to keep their doors open.
Jerseys, and posters fill the walls and Calacino's owner, Jerry Zaferatos , said in college football you cant count anyone out.
"I wouldn't have this business if I listened to people saying, you don't have a chance," Zaferatos said.
Dominique Calicino opened the business back in the early 1930's and the owner says that he doesn't know where they would be without mountaineer football.
The Mountaineers season started today against number 2 Alabama.
