What you need to know about TCU
It has been an up-and-down campaign for Gary Patterson’s squad, but the Horned Frogs should have confidence in this matchup after winning consecutive Big 12 games by double digits. Quarterback Max Duggan used his feet to help lift TCU over Texas Tech last week, rushing 19 times for 154 yards and three touchdowns. On the season, he’s completed 65.2 percent of his passes for 1,113 yards and five touchdowns.
Patterson’s defense has been key, however, in helping the Horned Frogs get back to .500 on the season. After giving up over 30 points in losses to Iowa State and Oklahoma, the Horned Frogs have given up just 20.5 points per game in their last two outings. TCU allowed Texas Tech to convert just 3 of 16 attempts on third down last week.
What you need to know about West Virginia
Meanwhile, West Virginia was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap last Saturday as the Mountaineers fell 17-13 to the Texas Longhorns. The Mountaineers’ only offensive touchdown came from running back Leddie Brown. The junior running back has been one of the top backs in the Big 12 this season with 741 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns to go along with 26 catches for 176 yards and two more receiving scores. However, Brown is questionable for Saturday’s game because of an undisclosed injury.
The Mountaineers have also fared well against the spread when playing TCU. In fact, West Virginia is 6-1 ATS in their last seven meetings against the Horned Frogs. West Virginia is also 5-1 in their last six games when playing as the favorite.
