Texas players will have to readjust their game day body clocks ahead of their game Saturday against TCU. After three straight weeks playing in the afternoon, the Longhorns will head to Forth Worth for an evening tilt against the Horned Frogs.
Texas (4-4, 3-2 Big 12) needs 2 more wins to secure bowl eligibility, but faces one of its stiffest tests of the season in No. 10-ranked TCU (7-1, 4-1) which is tied for the Big 12 lead. The Horned Frogs return home licking their wounds after suffering their first loss of the season last week at Iowa State.

Texas-TCU preview, 3 keys to the game
Who’s the quarterback?
Ah, this again. Just when it appeared freshman Sam Ehlinger had grabbed the reins as the Texas quarterback, a concussion has thrown the situation out of whack. Shane Buechele started and played well last week, completing 27 of 34 passes for 256 yards, 1 touchdown and an interception in a 38-7 win over Baylor. Then there’s Jerrod Heard, who continued to take snaps in practice this week. On Thursday, Texas coach Tom Herman hinted that all three quarterbacks might see the field.
Run, run, run away
Perhaps the factor motivating Herman to switch things up at quarterback is a struggling rushing attack. Texas finally appeared to make strides against Baylor, but leading rusher Toneil Carter (70 yards) suffered a head injury and will miss the game against TCU. Fellow freshman Daniel Young ran for 60 yards last week, but junior Chris Warren III only received 2 carries for 3 yards.
Rushing the Hill
TCU quarterback Kenny Hill reverted back to his old ways in the team’s loss to Iowa State last week, throwing 2 interceptions — including 1 inside the Cyclones 10-yard line. Texas has done well forcing quarterbacks into mistakes this season. Safety DeShon Elliott alone has 6 interceptions. Against a team as good and motivated as the Horned Frogs, takeaways could be huge.
