Coming off of a win against the Horned Frogs in 2016, West Virginia isn’t necessarily looking for revenge against TCU on Saturday.
The Mountaineers will try to avenge a 30-point loss they suffered, however, in Fort Worth, Texas, two seasons ago when the Horned Frogs looked like one of the best teams in the country.
West Virginia wide receiver David Sills V hasn’t forgotten the 40-10 defeat at TCU in 2015. It was a Thursday night and the Horned Frogs rolled to a blowout victory to improve to 8-0 as the then-No. 5 team in the country.
TCU is once again undefeated and a potential playoff team. The Mountaineers, who only have one loss this season, are hoping this time they can snatch a road win and push itself into the Big 12 title picture.
“It was a great environment when I went there,” Sills said during a media session on Tuesday. “Last time I believe it was a Thursday night game. That was a really cool experience but we went there and we didn’t get the win. We’re definitely looking to go to TCU now and get a win out of it.”
ESPN’s College GameDay will be on TCU’s campus ahead of the 3:30 p.m. ET clash between the Mountaineers and the Frogs, adding to what should already be a great Big 12 atmosphere.
Sills says the bye week has been good to West Virginia. The extra time has benefited the team’s preparations and they are fully focused on ending the Frogs’ perfect season.
“Playing in a big game on the road is what you dream of when you’re a kid,” Sills said. “You always play for the games when every seat in the house is packed, there’s no empty seats and everyone is screaming and it’s going to be a great game.”
