TCU Impressed With UVA and Coach London

Posted: Updated:

The Virginia football team will make its first appearance in the state of Texas since 1995 this weekend, as the Cavaliers go on the road to face 17th-ranked TCU.

The Wahoos will be looking to bounce back from the 56-20 defeat at Georgia Tech this past weekend.

The Horned Frogs offense is led by quarterback Casey Pachall.

The 6-foot-5 junior is #1 in the nation in passing efficiency, completing 33-of-39 passes for 536 yards, five touchdowns, and no interceptions.

TCU has won 27 of its last 28 games at home.

Frogs head coach Gary Patterson says despite the loss to the Yellow Jackets, he's impressed with UVA and head coach Mike London.

"Everybody I know talks really well about him, and the little bit I watch on him, I kind of feel the same way," says Patterson. "I see a team that's a very dangerous team coming to town this Saturday. They're a team that went to a bowl game last year, and wants to get back to another bowl game."

The Virginia football team will be looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season when they travel to face TCU.

After giving up just 19 and 16-points respectively in their first two games of the year, the Wahoos were blitzed for 56 in the loss at Georgia Tech.

While the Horned Frogs run a much different offense from the Yellow Jackets, Texas Christian can also put some points on the board, as they average 38 points per game.

UVA head coach London says, "We'll be challenged to say the least, but I think this is something these guys are looking forward to. I understand it's another nationally televised game. It's an opportunity to redeem yourself after being on national TV and not playing well."

Virginia and TCU kick-off Saturday at noon in Fort Worth.
