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.

And with just 128 yards so far, the Eagles are going to have to work to approach that in the second half. Wilson threw 11 yards to Jimmy Graham for a touchdown and a 10-0 lead near the end of the first quarter.

"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.
