Bowl Bound Texas Beats WVU, 28-14

MORGANTOWN, WV -- Texas entered Saturday’s game at No. 24 West Virginia winless in 2017 against ranked opponents.  Stopping WVU quarterback Will Grier was a tough task, but Texas had its own difference maker on the offensive side of the ball in junior Connor Williams, back for the first time since USC. Texas rushed for more than 230 yards behind an invigorated offensive line and held the potent Mountaineer offense in check after WVU quarterback Will Grier’s injury to earn bowl eligibility in a 28-14 win.
