TCU players discuss West Virginia

TCU tight end Stephen Bryant and safety Chris Hackett met with the media on Tuesday to discuss the Frogs' upcoming game against West Virginia.

TCU hopes to end a two-game losing skid on Saturday as they host West Virginia. Both teams enter the game with identical 1-4 records in Big 12 play.

TCU lost a tough game last week against Texas 30-7. The game had a three-hour delay due to lightning in the area and once again the offense struggled to generate long drives and points on the board.

The battle between the Frogs and Mountaineers last year was one of the most exciting games in Big 12 play with the Frogs squeaking out a 39-38 win in double-overtime.

TCU tight end Stephen Bryant says the game will be yet another strong challenge on the Frogs' schedule.

"We are going to stay focused, go out there and try to get a win. WV plays with a lot of speed. They play hard. Any team in this conference is a challenge. We're going to go out there and play our game," he said. "Last year, Jason made a big play on their game winning field goal, we capitalized on it and got into the end zone."

On defense the Frogs were exposed in the vertical game against the Longhorns. Texas completed just nine passes but averaged over 25-yards per completion.

Safety Chris Hackett says the defense is still playing at a high level.

"Our defense is still playing at a high level; we just have to come down on a few things that are beating us. Vertical routes and we just need to come together as a whole team," Hackett said.
