A TCU Win Would...
Give the Horned Frogs their third league victory of the season, surpassing last year's total.
Snap the Frogs' season-long nine-game losing streak and four-game road losing skid.
Halt a three-game losing string to Colorado State and give TCU a 7-4 lead in the all-time head-to-head series.
Looking to Snap the Streak
TCU currently is in a season-long nine-game losing streak after matching a season best with three consecutive victories.
The first four losses in the string were by 19.5 points per game, while the last five have been by 10.6. TCU has played much better in the past five games, especially considering the fact that four of those five contests have come against top-five teams in the conference (BYU, UNLV, San Diego State and Utah).
Score Limit 70
TCU is 9-3 when limiting opponents to 69 points or less this year and 1-10 when opponents score at least 70 points.
The Frogs are 4-2 when reaching 70 points on the board and 6-11 when failing to do so.
After holding 10 consecutive opponents to 70 points or less (for the first time since the 1986-87 season), eight of TCU's last nine foes have reached the 70-point mark.
Opponents have averaged 75.4 points per game over the last 10 games after scoring just 60.2 over the first 13 games.
Wrapping Up the BYU Game
A late first-half run was enough for the BYU Cougars to topple the TCU Horned Frogs, 85-72, on Saturday night.
TCU trailed by just two, 24-22, with 8:33 remaining before halftime until a 15-2 Cougar run over the next seven minutes broke the game open.
Kevin Langford scored a career-best 22 points, while senior Femi Ibikunle had a career-high 13.
BYU shot 61.5 percent from the floor against TCU after netting 59.3 percent of its shots in the earlier meeting between the schools this season.
