MORGANTOWN -

For the first time this season, the West Virginia football team will have a Saturday kickoff that isn't scheduled for noon. 

The Big 12 Conference announced today that the Oct. 7 meeting between the No. 23 Mountaineers and No. 9 TCU is set for a 3:30 p.m. ET start in Fort Worth. 

The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. 

West Virginia and TCU have each taken three of the six games in the overall series since the two teams first met in 1984. The Mountaineers are 1-1 in games played at Amon G. Carter Stadium, with the most recent road meeting resulting in a 40-10 Horned Frogs victory. 

TCU head coach Gary Patterson said Monday that West Virginia is "very, very good at what they do" as he and his team begin preparation to meet Dana Holgorsen's squad following the bye week.
