WVU football at TCU matchup preview
Prior to last year’s loss at home, WVU had beaten TCU in four straight matchups from 2018-2021.
The Mountaineers are set to face an explosive TCU offense after allowing just one touchdown in a nine-quarter stretch. The Horned Frogs are third in the Big 12 in both yards per game (501) and points per game (38.3) through four games.
Sophomore TCU quarterback Chandler Morris is second in the Big 12 in passing yards (1,117) and passing touchdowns (nine). After throwing two touchdowns and two interceptions in their season opening loss to Colorado, Morris has tossed seven touchdowns and just one interception in the three games that followed.
Junior running back Emani Bailey leads the conference in rushing yards (483), and he is averaging six yards per carry.
On the flip side, the TCU defense sits near the bottom of the Big 12 standings. The Horned Frogs are allowing the second-most yards per game (377.5) in the conference, but the distribution of those yards is lopsided. Despite suffering a conference-low 292.5 passing yards per game, opposing running backs are rushing for just 85 yards per game. That number is the second-best in the conference.
For the second week in a row, WVU’s quarterback room will be under a heavy spotlight as junior Garrett Greene (ankle) continues to rehab from the injury he suffered in the Backyard Brawl.
