On November 18 against Texas the Mountaineer starting quarterback suffered a serious injury to his finger. It later required surgery. Up until now it was unclear whether or not Grier was going to be available in the bowl games.
The Mountaineers will also be without senior starting running back Justin Crawford. He is sitting out the bowl game to make preparations for the 2018 NFL Draft.
The West Virginia Mountaineers and the Utah Utes face off for the first time since 1964. Utah won the lone matchup between the two in 1964.
