Forget that TCU is getting ready to face a lower-division team in Portland State. Coach Gary Patterson wants the same thing from his 20th-ranked Horned Frogs no matter who they are playing.
"Where we're at right now, we're always the underdog," said Nigel Burton, the 35-year-old Vikings coach in his second season. "I don't think that affects our team. You prepare the same, focus on us and our execution and not worry about who's across the line. And if we compete well and use proper technique and play hard, good things will happen."
"I think our team has shown a good amount of resiliency," Burton said. "There were things that happened in the last game that I think a year ago they may have folded or didn't believe that they could have still pulled that game off against a very good opponent."
