The West Virginia Mountaineers are facing a severe road test this weekend in Fort Worth against a TCU Horned Frog offense that is finding its stride. Can the defensive prowess of the Mountaineers slow this rushing attack by Emani Bailey and the air raid by Chandler Morris? Here are some numbers pulled from the first few games of the season to get a side-by-side look at these two teams to see where the ‘Eers might be outgunned and need to scheme to have success.
To this point, all of the TCU games have been electric offensively, with each game averaging roughly 500 yards of total offense spread over the air and ground. The WVU defense must continue being aggressive to the point of attack and stifle Bailey from getting out of control and gashing for large-chunk plays. Our defense has to disrupt the rhythm and get some takeaways to put the offense in the best possible position to convert points.
Watch our West Virginia Mountaineers take on the TCU Horned Frogs Saturday night at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
