West Virginia`s Mountaineer mascot can shoot his musket at Saturday`s game against Wisconsin after all. Wisconsin athletic department officials originally denied permission, saying university policy prohibits weapons on campus. Wisconsin athletic director Pat Richter asked chancellor John Wiley on Wednesday to make an exception to the policy. Wiley agreed. The Mountaineer mascot first appeared at athletic events in the 1936-1937 school year.
