The WVU football program finished the 2016-17 season 10-3, but lost their bowl game to an old rival in Miami. Saturday’s Gold-Blue game will kick off the 2017 campaign, with expectations already growing large.
The Mountaineers have 141 days before taking the field against Virginia Tech, but head coach Dana Holgorsen has yet to name an opening-game starter at quarterback. All signs point to Florida-transfer Will Grier (who we expect to flourish in the “Year of Grier“), but two underclassmen have an opportunity to win the job as well. Who’ll be playing wide receiver, though? With Shelton Gibson and Daikiel Shorts having moved on, somebody – maybe a group of players – will have to step up. There’s a few question marks on defense, too. Who’s playing defensive line? Linebacker? Cornerback? There’s lots to watch Saturday, here are some key positions to keep an eye on!
