This is WVU’s second night game of the season. The first, a tough 16-13 loss in Norman, Ok. to the then-No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners, dealt the Mountaineers the program’s sixth night game loss under head coach Neal Brown’s 20 opportunities. The good news is that Brown has lit a fire under his players in the games following BYE weeks, registering 16-11 when his team has more than a week to prepare. These two teams, each clawing back from a losing streak, stand in the middle of the Big 12 rankings, but WVU is on a three-game winning streak against the Horned Frogs.
WVU (2-4) and TCU (3-3) will throw down, in Fort Worth, for the series’ 11th meeting on Oct. 23; WVU currently leads the match-up 6-4.
