The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that TCU head coach Gary Patterson has said Andy Dalton will start at quarterback for the Frogs tonight. Dalton has missed the last two games after injuring his knee in the Oklahoma game. The sophomore signal-caller has yet to throw a touchdown pass this season, while throwing two interceptions; he has run for five touchdowns, averaging better than 43 rushing yards per game.

The Sporting News previews the game in its online edition as follows:

No. 9 BYU (6-0)at TCU (6-1), 8 (ET) tonight

BYU: With Dennis Pitta already a major offensive threat, the last thing opponents need from the Cougars is another tight end to defend. However, Andrew George had three catches against New Mexico, two of which went for scores, and is expected to be a bigger part of the offense. The Cougars welcomed back LB Terrance Hooks for his first action of the season after injuring his knee in the spring.

TCU: With the nation's best defense, allowing 207 yards per game, the nation's best run defense, allowing 20.7 yards per game, and the nation's best pass rush, cranking out 3.86 sacks per game, TCU will be BYU's toughest test of the year so far.

TCU must get the ground game going. BYU has played one team that can run a little bit, New Mexico, but the Lobos didn't have enough offensive playmakers to keep the chains moving. TCU does. The Horned Frog defense will keep the game low-scoring, but the offense can't be an accessory.
