The Mountaineers have reached the end of their five games in five weeks run, hosting the TCU Horned Frogs in their second-to-last home game of the 2020 season. The Mountaineers have played well at home this season and will look to continue that streak against the Horned Frogs.
Ashley O’Brien: The Mountaineers return home for the second-to-last home game of the 2020 season with a chip on their shoulders after last week’s loss to Texas. Darius Stills knows that he has two games left in Morgantown to sing “Country Roads” and he does everything in his power to get that win for West Virginia. TCU has some moments where the momentum starts to swing their way, but ultimately West Virginia inches this one out.

Shanna Rose: WVU is coming off a loss to Texas in a game that had some questionable game-changing calls. I think this w fuel the Mountaineers. WVU’s defense stood tall in the loss and will give Gary Patterson’s squad fits.

Ethan Bock: This is a very tough prediction because WVU has beaten opponents TCU didn’t beat, but TCU has beaten opponents WVU didn’t beat as well. It’s going to come down to if the offense can finish drives, unlike last week against Texas. It seemed that offensive coordinator Gerad Parker and his coaching group struggled once the Mountaineers started to get in the red zone last week. We already know and expect the defense to show up to every game. The Horned Frogs have won two-in-a-row beating Baylor by 10 and Texas Tech by 16. It’ll be interesting what happens in Morgantown on Saturday.

Matthew Thornsbury: The Horned Frogs are about to run into a brick wall. I believe the Mountaineers are going to be out to make a statement this week, and TCU just so happens to be the receivers of it. TCU has put some big wins on their resume with wins over Baylor, Texas Tech and Texas. So, this won’t be a walk in the park. Although, after what transpired in last weeks game, I expect the Mountaineers to run away against the Horned Frogs. Gary Patterson is a good coach, and that’s the only factor that could keep this game interesting.
West Virginia 37. TCU 17
Tom Berdel: The Horned frogs have held an interesting record in terms that they are 3-3, however they have beaten a few teams that West Virginia has lost to. One such team was WVU’s last game against the Longhorns. The other ironically was Texas Tech. They no doubt have proven that they are an excellent matchup against the mountaineers. Both teams pose similar records and have some similar issues. It may be a low scoring game, but it surely won’t be boring.
