The ‘Horns are in Morgantown in front of the “hillbillies drinking moonshine.”

The Texas Longhorns have another opportunity to break through with a big win in Morgantown on Saturday against the West Virginia Mountaineers.

The game will kick off at 11 a.m. on ESPN.

All-American junior left tackle Connor Williams is expected to return, as he was working out with the first team in warm ups. At center, junior Terrell Cuney looks likely to remain in the lineup.

At the quarterback position, sophomore Shane Buechele will get the start, but head coach Tom Herman indicated on Thursday that both quarterbacks will play early, so expect to see some of freshman Sam Ehlinger before the first quarter ends.
