SALT LAKE CITY - After a slow starting beginning to the season, BYU will face its toughest competition thus far, facing conference rivals (5) TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday afternoon in Fort Worth, Texas.

Despite the struggles that BYU has faced this season, TCU Head Coach Gary Patterson knows that a game against BYU will not be easy.

"BYU is better than a 2-4 football team," Patterson said. "You know they've had some different issues, but the bottom line is, they have our full attention. We've got a fight on our hands and we better get ready and play."

Coach Patterson credited the progress that BYU quarterback Jake Heaps has made thus far and is interested to see where he can go from here.


"To do as well as he's done as a true freshman, never playing any ball games, he keeps getting better," Patterson said. "Every week you can see that he plays with more confidence."

Preparing for the game against BYU is something that Patterson says he hates: "they give you so many different elements and they're good at what they do and this year isn't any different."

The matchup between the two teams has always been an exciting game.

"I believe we're going to get their best ball game," Patterson said. "I think they're trying to crawl themselves out of a hole and I think that makes them a very dangerous football team."
