No. 4 Texas Christian is a 35-point favorite against UNLV in Saturday’s 8 p.m. game at Sam Boyd Stadium, but Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson said his football team isn’t looking ahead.
The Frogs plays at No. 8 Utah the following week in a game that will have Mountain West Conference and Bowl Championship Series implications.
"Once we get in the grind of things, it’s really hard to look ahead," Patterson said on this morning’s league teleconference. "With the maturity we have with our senior group, I’d be really surprised."
Patterson also did his best to talk up the challenge TCU (8-0, 4-0 MWC) faces in UNLV (1-6, 1-2).
"They’ve played a lot differently at home than on the road," he said.
