The WVU Football team travels to Austin to face off against the Texas Longhorns (5-4) on Saturday. This list of players must have a game-changing performance for the ‘Eers to come out victorious against a Charlie Strong-led program, who happens to be undefeated (4-0) at home. Dana Holgorsen and the Mountaineers are 7-1 on the season, and currently in 3rd place in the Big 12. Skyler Howard has many weapons at his disposal, including Justin Crawford, Daikiel Shorts Shelton Gibson, but it’s the defense who will be heavily-tested in the Lone Star State.
