Boise State, TCU meet with league title at stake

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- TCU hasn't forgotten that this is a game that should be played in Texas.

A year ago, shortly after the Mountain West Conference welcomed Boise State, schedule makers agreed to make the conference showdown between these perennial BCS busters a home game for the Horned Frogs.

But when TCU moved to change conferences next season, reprisal followed. Irked at losing one of its marquee teams, Mountain West officials punished TCU by moving Saturday's game to Boise.

Come game time, TCU coach Gary Patterson insists he and his players will be focused more on football and less on location. There is too much at stake for both teams in their first-ever meeting outside the postseason.
