West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen gave us the gutsiest call of the 2018 season when his No. 9 ranked Mountaineers (7-1) went for the two-point conversion last week in Austin to defeat the Texas Longhorns and send them tumbling out of the Big 12 title picture for good.
Holgorsen had some help, with Heisman Trophy candidate Will Grier. Together, they welcome the struggling TCU Horned Frogs (4-5) into Morgantown on Saturday afternoon.
The game is scheduled to start at 12 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Fox Sports 1 is included in FuboTV’s main package, which includes 85 total channels and is largely tailored towards sports fans. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a handy “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which will allow you to watch the game on-demand up to three days after it airs even if you forgot to record it.
In addition to their extensive Netflix-like streaming library, Hulu now also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including Fox Sports 1. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
Fox Sports 1 is included in the “Sling Blue” channel package. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.

Fox Sports Go
Additionally, you can watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Fox Sports Go website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Fox Sports Go app. You’ll need to log in to a cable provider to watch this way, but if you don’t have that, you can still sign up for one of the above options and then use your FuboTV, Hulu or Sling TV credentials to sign in and watch on the Fox digital platforms.
Holgorsen’s call is an all-time great one, and he emphasized that to his players right before.
“I told the guys on the sideline before we got the ball, ‘Guys, let’s go down and score and we’ll go for two and win this thing. They went out there and believed it. They came to the sidelines after we scored and already knew what our two-point play was going to be.”
Grier racked up 346 yards and three touchdowns against Texas, including running in the game-sealing two-point conversion at the end. Grier’s 2,618 passing yards and 28 touchdowns vault him high up the Heisman ballot.
Now, West Virginia controls their own destiny in Big 12 play. A showdown at home against No. 6 Oklahoma looms large on November 23. If each team enters that game with one loss, it guarantees the winner a berth in the Big 12 Championship Game. The Mountaineers have to get there first…
Expectations heading into this season were higher for TCU. The Horned Frogs season started promising, but since a September loss to Ohio State, they have gone in the opposite direction. Gary Patterson’s team has lost four of their past six games, including a one-point loss to Kansas.
TCU is in danger of not being bowl eligible for the third time in six seasons, and need two victories down the stretch to secure a spot. Though, the other three seasons produced three 11-win campaigns, and three bowl wins, including a Peach Bowl win in 2014.
Matchup to Watch: Quarterback Mike Collins earned his first win last week, leading TCU to a 14-13 win against Kansas State. Collins will need to produce quick scoring drives for the Horned Frogs in order to hang with the Mountaineers offensively.
