The 2017 Heart of Dallas Bowl features a matchup between West Virginia and Utah, two teams from power conferences looking to end their seasons on a high note after an up-and-down campaign.
While the Mountaineers had a chance to make some noise following a 5-2 start, they lost three of their last five games, including back-to-back defeats to close the regular season.
Meanwhile, Utah faded after a 4-0 start and needed a victory over Colorado in the season finale just to achieve bowl eligibility. Let’s check out all of the important viewing details for the post-Christmas clash in Dallas. That’s followed by a preview and prediction for the bowl game.
It speaks to the success of each programs that we’ve become accustomed to seeing West Virginia and Utah on the bowl schedule. Both Dana Holgorsen and Kyle Whittingham, the coaches for these respective programs, are on a run of four-straight bowl s, meaning the postseason routine has not only become commonplace for fans but a crucial building block for the future with 15 extra practices and a chance to line up against a quality (usually Power Five) opponent on a neutral field. This year’s Heart of Dallas Bowl might be missing a few of the big names we saw from the regular season, but it’s also a preview of what to expect from each team next fall.
If the Heart of Dallas Bowl comes down to a kick for Utah against West Virginia, the Utes will turn to someone who entered this season with only one year of high school football, didn’t know what the Lou Groza Award was, yet walked off with it a few weeks ago.
Matt Gay has difficulty describing what has transpired over the past five months. “It’s been crazy,” he said. “I’m trying to figure out the emotion of things.” Gay’s Utes (6-6) need a victory Tuesday to finish with a winning record for the fourth consecutive season.
West Virginia (7-5) already has done that but wants to end a two-game losing streak that began when quarterback Will Grier was lost with a broken finger on his passing hand.
