The West Virginia Mountaineers (2-4) will visit Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas, to take on the TCU Horned Frogs (3-3) in a Big 12 matchup in Week 8. 

West Virginia lost to the Baylor Bears last week, 45-20. The Mountaineers offense got halted by the Bears tough defense, gaining just 367 total yards. WVU running back Leddie Brown collected just 44 yards on 12 carries as the Mountaineers had under 100 rushing yards as a team for the fourth time in six games.

TCU lost to the then-No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners in Week 7, 52-31. The Horned Frogs' nine penalties hurt their chances to keep up with Oklahoma’s efficient offense. Quarterback Max Duggan put up a solid effort in the loss, completing 20 of his 30 passes for 346 yards and four touchdown passes.

West Virginia vs. TCU Prediction and Pick

Even after failing to record 100 or more rushing yards in four of the last six games, WVU will face a TCU defense that is allowing 210 rushing yards per game. Mountaineers starting running back Leddie Brown has shown an ability to dominate out of the backfield, rushing for 161 yards and a touchdown in an upset win over then-No. 15 Virginia Tech on Sept. 18.

Before getting smashed by Baylor in Week 7, West Virginia had lost to Maryland by six points in Week 1, lost to Oklahoma by just three points in Week 4, and lost to Texas Tech by only three points in Week 6.

If the Mountaineers can get their running game established early and control the tempo and clock against TCU, they should be able to pick up a win.

I’m taking West Virginia on the spread at +4.5 and on the moneyline at +170.
