What to Know
The West Virginia Mountaineers and the TCU Horned Frogs will face off in a Big 12 clash at noon ET Nov. 14 at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Mountaineers are out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.
West Virginia was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap last week as they fell 17-13 to the Texas Longhorns. West Virginia’s only offensive touchdown came from RB Leddie Brown.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between TCU and the Texas Tech Red Raiders last week was still a pretty decisive one as TCU wrapped it up with a 34-18 win at home. QB Max Duggan continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, accumulating 73 passing yards in addition to rushing for three TDs and 154 yards. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Duggan has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season. Duggan’s sharp performance also set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.
TCU’s defense was a presence as well, as it got past Texas Tech’s offensive line to sack QB Henry Colombi five times for a total loss of 20 yards. Leading the way was DE Ochaun Mathis and his three sacks. Mathis now has four sacks this year.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with the Mountaineers going off at just a 3-point favorite. Those interested in the spread don’t face an easy decision since they are 4-2 ATS and the Horned Frogs 4-2.
TCU’s victory lifted them to 3-3 while West Virginia’s defeat dropped them down to 4-3. We’ll find out if TCU can add another positive mark to their record or if West Virginia can shake off the loss and take the spring out of TCU’s step.
