TCU vs West Virginia Game Preview

Why TCU Will Win

The Horned Frogs keep getting tested, and they keep finding ways to come through.

Whether it was the offense going crazy on Oklahoma for 668 yards, to fighting through at Kansas, to surviving a great battle with Oklahoma State, to pushing though a Kansas State team that had the program’s number, 7-0 is 7-0 for a reason.

TCU is terrific.

The offense is keeping the chains moving, it’s No. 3 in the country in yards and scoring – it’s not like there are a ton of lightweights on the slate – and there aren’t any mistakes with just four turnovers so far.

The next week, Jalon Daniels left with an injury in the Kansas loss to TCU, and last week Kansas State’s Adrian Martinez left right away and backup Will Howard got dinged up.

TCU will pull this off whether or not Daniels is able to get through it – the Horned Frog offense will be too good against the mediocre West Virginia D – but this will be another wild Big 12 back-and-forth fight.
