TCU is one of a handful of unbeatens left in college football. The college football odds for the game have the Horned Frogs listed as a strong favorite to pick up the win.
A 6-foot-10 standout at Northwest Florida State, Gordon officially visited the Mountaineers on September 16, and ultimately elected to call West Virginia home over options such as Oklahoma, UNLV and Wichita State.
Running back Darius Anderson has keyed an efficient offense with 68 carries for 422 yards and six touchdowns, while quarterback Kenny Hill is much improved from a year ago. Typically Gary Patterson has solid defensive squads but this year the Frogs are scoring nearly 48 points per contest.
With the addition of Florida transfer quarterback Will Grier, the Mountaineers entered the season ranked in the top 25 with the potential to cause some damage in the Big 12.
Overall, Gordon becomes the fourth member of the West Virginia 2018 class behind Hollywood (Fla.) University School guard Trey Doomes, Kaukauna (Wi.) point guard Jordan McCabe and Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy forward Derek Culver. Mountaineers average 231 rushing yards and are second in the nation in total offense (594.8 yards per game). The game is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on FOX Sports 1. Eastern, with full streaming details below. TCU’s balance makes it tough to beat, but a spread of almost two touchdowns is a little surprising to see against a good Mountaineers squad.
