  • Match-up preview:

TCU and West Virginia are both hungry to bounce back after suffering losses in their respective last times out. While the Horned Frogs took a 52-31 beating to Oklahoma on the road, West Virginia was able to recharge its batteries during a bye week — a much-needed one for the team to recover physically, mentally and emotionally after a trio of tough losses to open Big 12 play.

The struggling West Virginia offense has an opportunity against TCU, which ranked ninth in the Big 12 in both scoring and total defense. They’ve allowed more than 500 yards in three of their last five games, and have given up an average of 32 points in their six contests.

While WVU’s defense has shown a lot of strength this season, the TCU offense has had no trouble finding points. Even when the Horned Frog defense gave up 60 more yards to Texas Tech, the TCU offense managed to pull off a blowout of the Red Raiders on Oct. 9, 52-31 on the road.

Still, WVU’s defense is nothing to sneeze at — its most recent game against Baylor was the unit’s first allowing 30 points or more (the Mountaineers lost 45-20), just weeks after giving up just 16 points to Oklahoma, the most high-octane offense in the league.
