Yes, yes the stadium opened with the Grambling game, but this is the first game where TCU will be playing a football team from not only the FBS ranks but from the AQ ranks as well. Virginia comes into this game off a loss in their conference opener, getting blown out by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, while TCU won their conference opener last week on the road in Lawrence, Kansas. Virginia is the more tested of the two teams, having played three games, including two teams from AQ conference, but TCU has been far more impressive in their wins with Casey Pachall leading the nation in passing efficiency through week three. If Casey is still the leader after this game, expect a good result for TCU in the win column. This is also the first game for TCU with Waymon James, the best running back in the Big 12 this season, sidelined by injury- but it won't be the last, so how TCU performs on the ground will be a good indicator of what we can expect from a James-less season. This should be fun.
Let's beat the hell out of 'em.
