WVU to play Utah in Heart of Dallas Bowl


The Utes lost six of their final eight games but beat Colorado 34-13 in their regular-season finale to become bowl eligible.

West Virginia will play Utah in the Heart of Dallas Bowl, according to multiple reports. The game will be played in the Cotton Bowl Dec. 26 with kickoff set for 12:30 p.m.

Utah finished next to last in the Pac-12 South but closed the year by nearly upsetting No. 11 Washington and beating Colorado 34-13. Running back Zach Moss rushed for 1,023 yards and 9 touchdowns. Utah went on to win the game by a 32-6 score. Utah is paced by quarterback Tyler Huntley, who has thrown for 2,246 yards, 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Red Flag Warning, Fire Weather Watch, and Freeze Watch
In addition to the fire danger, strong winds will also bring the threat of blowing dust and power outages in the region. Forecasters predict northeast winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts of about 55 mph and isolated gusts up to 65 mph.

"We've never played in the Heart of Dallas Bowl so this will be a new experience for our team", said Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham. Whittingham's only bowl loss as a head coach came in 2010 at the Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State.

The bowl was originally supposed to be a matchup between the Big 12 and the Big Ten. The Mountaineers are playing in their first Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl. This is the fourth straight bowl game for the Mountaineers and their 36thoverall appearance. Utah, which would not play in another bowl game for 28 years, is now 16-4 in postseason bowls.
