The Wildcats face another test this Saturday when UTEP (2-1) and Aaron Jones, the nation’s fourth-leading rusher at 183 yards per game, visit Manhattan to close out non-conference play.
But when the TCU coach returns for the first time in three decades on Saturday, he’ll not only be trying to deal Snyder a defeat, but also do the same to his alma mater.
The Longhorns (1-2) have lost two straight games and will open the Big 12 season Saturday night at home against Kansas State (2-1).
Living in the moment served Kansas State well this season. The seventh-ranked Wildcats rose to No. 1 in the BCS standings, won the Big 12 title and reached the Fiesta Bowl.
