Tom Pennington

Both TCU and West Virginia have lost two straight. Who stops their slide on Saturday?

The TCU Horned Frogs hit the road for a Big 12 battle against the No. 21 West Virginia Mountaineers on Saturday.

TCU has lost two straight and is now 2-3 in conference play. After dropping a triple-overtime shootout to Texas Tech, the Horned Frogs lost 36-14 last week at Oklahoma State. Quarterback Trevone Boykin has fared well since taking over for ousted junior Casey Pachall. The freshman has thrown for an average of 262 yards in his four starts and has completed 62% of his passes. The Horned Frogs rank 23rd in total defense, allowing 333 yards per game.

At 5-2, West Virginia is coming off a bye week after two straight losses of its own. The Mountaineers lost to Texas Tech and Kansas State by an average score of 52-14, and the offense is limping after averaging 52 points per game in its first five games. Still, quarterback Geno Smith has thrown 26 touchdowns to just two interceptions and has completed 74% of his passes. West Virginia's offense averages 500 yards per game, ranking 13th nationally.
