Bet TCU at Virginia

The Horned Frogs are coming off an 11-2 season in 2008 under ninth-year coach Gary Patterson. TCU finished No. 7 in the AP poll at the end of the season and opened this year ranked No. 17. The Horned Frogs already have moved up a spot and a win at Virginia would help the Mountain West team. TCU is led by a defense that allowed just 11.3 points per-game in 2008 and only allowed 18 touchdowns on the season. Jerry Hughes led the defense last season and is back at defensive end. Hughes had 15 sacks and another 4.5 tackles for loss last year to become a First Team All-American. Hughes’ 15 sacks led the country as did his six forced fumbles. On offense, TCU brings back quarterback Andy Dalton, who threw for 2,242 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Virginia is coming off an embarrassing 26-14 loss to William & Mary last weekend. The Cavaliers only amassed 268 yards of offense. Quarterback Jameel Sewell had three interceptions and just 80 yards passing for Virginia. All together, Virginia had seven turnovers in the loss. The poor offensive showing was consistent with last season, where Virginia averaged just 16.1 points per-game under ninth-year coach Al Groh. Groh needs a strong showing from his team this week to avoid being put on the hot seat in the middle of the season.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made TCU 11-point road favorites over Virginia on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 40.5.
