TCU planning late arrival for WVU game after storm

TCU is planning a late arrival for its game Saturday at West

Virginia in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.

The Horned Frogs originally planned to fly into West Virginia on

Friday and have a walkthrough at the stadium before going to its

hotel in the Pittsburgh area.

Coach Gary Patterson said Tuesday that his team will instead

conduct all of its normal day-before-game routine at home. The

Frogs will do their walkthrough, video tests and pregame dinner at

home before flying directly to Pittsburgh and arriving at their

hotel around 10 p.m. Friday.

It was snowing Tuesday in West Virginia, but the long-term

forecast is for partly cloudy conditions with temperatures in the

upper 40s for kickoff Saturday afternoon between the Big 12

newcomers.
