No. 17 TCU (2-1, 0-0 Big 12) at Texas (2-1, 0-0), 4:30 p.m. ET (Fox).
Line: TCU by 3.
Series record: Texas leads 62-25-1
WHAT'S AT STAKE?
The winner emerges as a top contender for the Big 12 title, which is where TCU thinks it belongs, and Texas is longing to be after years of being a league also-ran. TCU also wants to avoid a second-straight loss after dropping a tough game against No. 4 Ohio State.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — No. 11 TCU is apparently hurting after the loss that dropped the Horned Frogs out of a share for the Big 12 lead.
TCU quarterback Kenny Hill and leading tackler Travin Howard are among several key players that coach Gary Patterson said Tuesday are "between probable and questionable" to play the next game at Texas Tech.
No. 6 TCU (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) at Kansas State (3-2, 1-1), Saturday, Noon ET (FS1)
Line: TCU by 4 ½.
Series record: Tied 5-5
WHAT'S AT STAKE
TCU plays its third straight stiff test after dispatching Oklahoma State and West Virginia, and with a lighter schedule that includes Kansas, Iowa State and Texas on the horizon. Kansas State needs to get on track after a double-overtime loss to the Longhorns and with Oklahoma looming.
No. 23 West Virginia (3-1, 1-0 Big 12) at No. 8 TCU (4-0, 1-0), Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (FS1)
Defensive coordinator Tony Gibson has a simple solution for improving No. 23 West Virginia's lackluster run defense.
"Tackle," Gibson said.
Simple, but not easy. The Mountaineers have had trouble doing that effectively this season, enabling Josh Jackson of Virginia Tech and Khalil Herbert of Kansas to elevate their games to star status.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — TCU felt ignored heading into its matchup with high-powered Oklahoma State.
The Horned Frogs can't be overlooked anymore. Darius Anderson ran for a career-high 160 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 16 TCU upset the sixth-ranked Cowboys 44-31 on Saturday to stamp the Horned Frogs as a Big 12 contender.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Kenny Hill was everywhere for TCU a year ago against Arkansas, accounting for nearly 500 total yards of offense in a crushing double-overtime loss to Arkansas.
This time around, the Horned Frogs quarterback happily took a back seat to his teammates on the other side of the ball.
Led by a defense that stifled its opponent for a second straight week, No. 23 TCU (2-0) made amends for its loss a year ago by earning a 28-7 win over the Razorbacks (1-1) on Saturday.
