I think it is because the only thing the national sports media knows about West Virginia is that WVU has a big rivalry with Pitt. Ergo, West-by-God-Virginia must be Pirates/Steelers territory. (Well, I might concede the Steelers part--I don't think I've met a West Virginian who wasn't a Steelers fan.)
Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.
