At the time of Rimac’s injury, West Virginia and TCU were all tied up at 21 late in third quarter. The Mountaineers, as they have all season, have used the run game to climb back and give themselves a chance at the upset.
Listed at 6-foot-6 and 314 pounds, Rimac is a redshirt sophomore from Brunswick, Ohio.
