We first played TCU in the Bluebonnet Bowl of 1984 on New Years Eve. We handily won that contest by a score of 31-14. We are currently ahead in the series 5-4 and we’ve won two in a row. We lost to the Horned Frogs at home in our inaugural year in the XII by 1 point, 38-39. Shockingly we beat them by a FG 30-27, in our terrible year of 2013. TCU then won two in a row by scores of 30-31 and 10-40 in 2014 and 2015 respectively. WVU then came back home in Morgantown to get revenge 34-10 before the Purple Frogs beat us one last time 24-31 in 2017. Bringing us to the present, we won our two in a row in 2018 and 2019 by scores of 47-10 and 20-17.
WVU is easily ahead in both All Time Wins (761-505-45 to 658-557-57) and Overall Winning % (.598-.540). We’ve been to more Bowl games (37-34) but they have the better Bowl Record (15-22 to 17-16-1). TCU actually has two National Championships to our zero and 18 Conference Titles to our 15. They have 1 Heisman winner to our zero and 18 All Americans to our 11. The Horned Frogs have 202 Draft Picks to our 196 and 17 1st round Picks to our 12. WVU wins in overall weeks in the AP Poll at 306 (28th overall) to TCU’s 243 (38th).
Hopefully we can extend our winning streak against the Frogs to three and position ourselves to go Bowling at season’s end.
