As the West Virginia football program embarks on its second year as a member of the Big 12 Conference, the team that takes the field for the 2013 season opener on August 31 will look much different from the one that was seen in 2012.
Multiple new additions are expected to help fortify the team's faulty defense, and even more changes are expected on offense.
With stars Geno Smith, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey all gone to the NFL, WVU will have a new quarterback and could have four starting receivers who are new to the program.
The Mountaineers added two high-profile transfers—and both are expected to play immediately.
Additionally, the 2013 WVU squad will feature a new cast of game-ready junior college additions on both sides of the ball.
