Win against BYU could give Horned Frogs highest Conference finish

The Horned Frogs have a chance Saturday to move up to sixth place in the Mountain West Conference final standings with a win over the Brigham Young University Cougars.

If TCU (14-14, 6-9) wins, it could put the Horned Frogs in a tie with the University of Utah should the Utes lose against the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Saturday.

Even with six conference wins, this is the Horned Frogs’ best conference record since joining the Mountain West in 2005.

TCU is coming off a 57-36 loss to the Air Force Falcons on Wednesday.

In the first meeting of the season between the Horned Frogs and the Cougars, TCU lost 83-72 in Provo, Utah.

BYU has an overall record for the season of 26-6 with all of its losses coming on the road.

Ryan Wall lead the Horned Frogs against BYU with 14 points, shooting 4-of-4 from 3-point range.

Wall’s effort was overshadowed by BYU’s Trent Plaisted who led the Cougars with a career-high 27 points.

The Cougars went on to shoot 60 percent from the field in that game.

When the teams met in Provo, the win over TCU helped the Cougars maintain an undefeated home winning streak.

The current streak for the Cougars is 47 straight home wins.
