HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE (ON A SCALE OF 1-10)?

Five. I’m really not afraid of the Horned Frogs. TCU has never beat West Virginia, and I don’t foresee that happening tonight with one of their best players, Jaylen Fisher, out with an injury.

PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG

West Virginia keeps the winning streak against the Frogs alive when a new-and-improved Theodore Buckets returns and gives the Mountaineers their scoring threat back.

West Virginia 73, TCU 69
