DALLAS — The Utes will try to improve on head coach Kyle Whittingham's stellar 10-1 bowl record today as they take on West Virginia (7-5) in the Heart of Dallas Bowl, starting Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. Utah (6-6) has Tyler Huntley back at quarterback, and top receiver Darren Carrington II (66 receptions) and rushing leader Zack Moss (1,023 yards) give Huntley some weapons to utilize.
The Mountaineers, though, wont be coming in at full strength. Junior quarterback Will Grier is out with a broken finger and running back Justin Crawford has opted not to play in order to prepare for the NFL draft. Sophomore Chris Chugunov, who has just one career start, will be West Virginias quarterback.
The game will be played on grass at Cotton Bowl Stadium (92,100). ESPN, WatchESPN and AM-700 will broadcast the game.
