ESPN’s ‘GameDay’ will follow TCU, but Frogs don’t budge in polls

ESPN’s College GameDay will be in Morgantown, W.Va. for TCU’s game against West Virginia on Saturday afternoon.

The Horned Frogs’ game will kick off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday on ABC (WFAA/Channel 8).

GameDay airs Saturdays from 8-11 a.m. Central time.

TCU (6-1 overall, 3-1 Big 12) is capturing national attention for an offensive renaissance that was on display in a 82-27 victory Saturday over Texas Tech.

But the Frogs didn’t budge in The Associated Press Top 25 rankings or the USA Today Amway Coaches Poll released Sunday.

The Frogs remained No. 10 in both polls. West Virginia (6-2, 4-1) is ranked 20th in AP and 22nd by coaches.

The top four in each poll were Mississippi State, Florida State, Alabama and Auburn.

On Sunday, the College Football Playoff committee that will select the four teams for the first playoff were meeting in Grapevine in advance of the first CFP rankings on Tuesday.

Mississippi fell from No. 3 to No. 7 in the AP media poll after losing 10-7 Saturday night at LSU.

The Rebels were ninth in the coaches’ poll, one spot ahead of the Frogs, the first Big 12 team in the polls. Michigan State was fifth and Oregon sixth. Notre Dame ranked seventh and Georgia eighth.

Two Big 12 teams, conference leader Kansas State and Baylor, followed TCU in the coaches’ poll at 11th and 12th.

Kickoff times

Other kickoff times announced Sunday for this Saturday: Texas at Texas Tech, 6:30 p.m. on FS1 and Oklahoma at Iowa State, 11 a.m. on FS1.

Kansas State’s home game against Oklahoma State kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday on ABC (WFAA/8). Baylor plays at home against Kansas at 3 p.m. Saturday on FS1 leading into the Texas-Texas Tech game.
