Big 12 Puts West Virginia vs. TCU in Big Noon Saturday Slot

High noon showdown for conference positioning set for Saturday in Morgantown.

Big Noon Saturday on FOX is coming to the Mountain State for the second time this season, the Big 12 Conference announced today. West Virginia football and TCU will kick off at noon on Saturday, Nov. 14, at Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown.

Last Monday, the Big 12 flexed the game—and two others—into the six-day window for broadcast rights.

WVU is 4-0 in games at Milan Puskar Stadium this season while two of TCU’s three wins have been claimed on the road. In their first Big Noon Saturday game of the season, the Mountaineers disposed of Kansas 38-17.

The Mountaineers (4-3, 3-3) return home after a 17-13 loss at Texas on Saturday, Nov. 7. The Horned Frogs (3-3, 3-3) downed Texas Tech 34-18 at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas.

Though WVU leads the all-time series 5-4, the teams are deadlocked at 4-4 in Big 12 play. The schools became Big 12 siblings in 2012. The Mountaineers have won two in a row.

In 2018, WVU trounced TCU 47-10 and then pulled out a late-winner in Fort Worth last year, 20-17. WVU could secure the longest win streak in this rivalry with a third win in a row on Saturday.
