During Saturday’s humiliation of Texas Tech, wide receiver Josh Doctson rolled an ankle in the third quarter and did not return to the game. Doctson hasn’t practiced since, although head coach Gary Patterson has seen what he described as “drastic improvement” and is optimistic the receiver will be available for the West Virginia game Saturday in Morgantown.
Injured receiver Josh Doctson practiced “a little bit” on Wednesday, TCU coach Gary Patterson said, but he added that freshman Emanuel Porter could start in his place Saturday when the Horned Frogs visit West Virginia.
TCU is back on the road after two big home wins, and runs into a massive challenge with a College Gameday appearance in Morgantown against the Mountaineers. Here is what you need to know about West Virginia.
"Offensively, it starts with Boykin, their quarterback," Holgorsen said. "Probably – well, not probably – he is the most improved player in college football. He is playing well. I thought he was good two years ago. As a true freshman, he came out here and beat us in overtime. Last year, i thought he was the best receiver on the field – possibly the best player on the field. I texted those guys earlier in the week and told them to move him back to receiver because he was so dang good."
Fox football analyst Charles Davis was not exactly sold on Trevone Boykin before he came to Fort Worth for his first time calling a TCU game this season. The last time Davis saw Boykin was last season in Norman, Oklahoma in a TCU loss against the Sooners.
The West Virginia coach worked with Meacham when they were offensive assistants at Oklahoma State. Holgorsen was an assistant at Texas Tech when Cumbie was a quarterback for the Red Raiders.
Unless you have spent this football season under a rock or mute commercials during telecasts, you should know the Big 12 bills itself as the Power 5 conference that produces “One True Champion.”
Could the committee with a straight face put 1-loss TCU in ahead of 2-loss Notre Dame (still need to play Arizona State and USC) and 2-loss Alabama, which may not even win the SEC West?
