The all-time series is tied 4-4, but the Horned Frogs have the better of the rivalry (yes, I’m using that term for this game), 4-3, since the two teams joined the Big 12 in the same year.
In Morgantown last year, WVU dominated TCU in a 44-10 win. The last matchup in Fort Worth was a 31-24 TCU win in 2017.
This will be the first time WVU head coach Neal Brown will meet Gary Patterson as a head coach. The two previously met in Brown’s final year as Texas Tech offensive coordinator, a 56-53 win for the Red Raiders in Forth Worth.
The Mountaineers (4-6, 2-5) need to beat Oklahoma State this Saturday, in Morgantown to keep any hope of bowl eligibility alive. The Horned Frogs (5-5, 3-4) can lock of bowl eligibility this Saturday with a win over Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma.
