This Saturday, the West Virginia Mountaineers welcome the 7th-ranked undefeated TCU Horned Frogs to Morgantown. In front of a Homecoming crowd, WVU will look to put dampen TCU’s playoff hopes and pull the upset victory.

As for how much of a chance they will have to achieve this feat, though? Well, ESPN gives the Mountaineers virtually no shot.

According to ESPN’s FPI (Football Power Index), the Mountaineers have a 32.1% chance of defeating the Horned Frogs. TCU also comes into the game as 7-point favorites.

Will West Virginia be able to pull off the unthinkable? Who knows, but anything can happen in Morgantown.

WVU and TCU kickoff at noon. The matchup will broadcast on ESPN.


The Mountaineers have won four-straight against TCU, including a 29-17 win in Ft. Worth last season.
