FORT WORTH, Texas (Ticker) -- TCU hopes for an easier game against
Army this year.
The 25th-ranked Horned Frogs try to improve to 5-0 all-time
against the Black Knights when the former Conference USA rivals
meet in a non-conference matchup Saturday at Amon Carter
Last year, Army jumped out to a 17-0 first-quarter lead at West
Point before TCU scored 21 unanswered points for its fourth
victory in as many meetings in the series.
TCU improved to 4-0 in Mountain West Conference play with a
28-14 triumph at Wyoming last week.
The Horned Frogs forced seven turnovers, including four in the
first half as they built a 28-7 lead. Safety Brian Bonner's
interception on Wyoming's opener series led to a one-yard
touchdown run by Robert Merrill that gave TCU the lead for good.
Army (0-5), which is playing as an independent, suffered its
10th straight defeat with a 14-10 home loss to Central Michigan
Scott Wesley ran for a career-high 150 yards and a touchdown for
the Black Knights, who held a 10-7 lead before Chippewas
quarterback Kent Smith picked up a dropped snap and scored on a
two-yard run with 6:54 left.
