After a massive victory for Neal Brown’s first season at West Virginia, the Mountaineers followed it up with a narrow loss at the hands of Oklahoma State.
The Mountaineers had one of their best offensive games behind quarterback Jarret Doege, although their inability to finish drives cost them dearly — especially down the stretch. His favorite touchdown target — George Campbell — will be playing his final game as a Mountaineer, so he will be looking to add to his touchdown total of 7.
TCU quarterback Max Duggan will be far from the biggest passing threat the Mountaineers have faced this season, but he is still a threat nonetheless. A dual-threat signal caller, the freshman from Council Bluffs, Iowa is the Horned Frogs’ second-leading rusher with 532 yards and 6 touchdowns.
On the other side of the ball, the Horned Frog defense has been one of the toughest in the Big 12, holding opponents to 345.4 total and 203.5 passing yards per game — trailing only Oklahoma.
Sitting at 4 wins, the Mountaineers’ bowl hopes are pretty much gone, although coach Neal Brown says his team could use a victory as a building block for the program. TCU sits at 5 wins this year, and with a win, they could sneak into bowl eligibility.
Mountaineers are underdogs once again
TCU is a 13.5-point favorite over West Virginia.
Where to watch
