Texas defensive end Breckyn Hager isn’t pulling any punches on what makes it so difficult to win at West Virginia.
According to Cedric Golden of the Austin American-Statesman, when asked about what makes West Virginia such a tough road environment, this is what Hager had to say.
I asked Breckyn Hager what made West Virginia such a tough venue for visiting teams. "Because it's a bunch hillbillies drinking moonshine."

Hager may not know the exact number of hillbillies who may or may not be drinking moonshine, but he’s correct to say West Virginia is a tough road environment. Mountaineers fans regularly turn out to cheer on their team, which is 4-1 at home this season.
The Mountaineers can improve to 5-1 if they can score enough on Hager and the Texas defense. It’ll be a tough task because the Longhorns are strong on defense, particularly in the secondary.
