The Horned Frogs Against the Cowboys
Wyoming leads the all-time series 4 games to 3 and has won two straight meetings.
The Cowboys won the two games last year by a total of just six points.
Five of the seven contests have been decided by five points or less.
TCU is 0-2 in Laramie, as the Cowboys have a two-point win and a three-point overtime victory over the Frogs in their arena.
Former Frog at the Helm
Wyoming head coach Steve McClain served as an assistant coach at TCU for four seasons (1994-95 through 1997-98).
He is the second former Horned Frog assistant to face TCU as a head coach at another school this season, joining Rob Flaska (Centenary).
Four is Enough
TCU currently is in a season-long four-game losing streak after matching a season best with three consecutive victories.
After holding 10 consecutive opponents to 70 points or less, three of TCU's last four foes have surpassed the 70-point mark.
Opponents have averaged 74.0 points per game over the last five games after scoring just 53.5 over the previous six games.
From Nov. 24 through Jan. 6, the Horned Frogs limited 10 consecutive teams to 70 or under. It was the first time a Frog team accomplished that feat since the 1986-87 season, when TCU held 13 opponents in a row under that total (Jan. 7-Feb. 21, 1987).
Needing Some Shots to Drop
TCU shot 48.2 percent (41-of-85) from the floor during the team's 2-0 start to league play, but has made just 36.7 percent (79-of-215) of its shots in its four consecutive losses.
In addition, the Frogs went 35-for-45 (.778) from the free throw line in the wins and 51-for-92 in the two losses (.554).
TCU scored 67.5 points per game in the two Horned Frog league wins and 56.0 in the defeats.
3-Ball Corner Pocket
In TCU's 10 wins this season, the Horned Frogs have made 68-of-184 (.370) attempts from beyond the arc, while their opponents have hit just 51-of-186 (.274).
However, in the Frogs' eight defeats, the team is 35-of-140 (.250) from 3-point range, while opponents have connected on 68-of-139 (.489).
Getting One on the Road
TCU's win at Utah on Jan. 6 was its first conference road victory since defeating Tulane (Conference USA) in New Orleans on Feb. 23, 2005.
TCU had lost nine straight league road games, including all eight in the MWC last season.
It was the first time that TCU won its first conference road game of the season since 2004, when the Frogs earned a 55-54 win at Houston on a putback at the buzzer.
