KANSAS CITY - For the second time in program history, TCU will make an appearance in the Big 12 Championship game. The Horned Frogs, winners of four straight, will take on No. 1 West Virginia Sunday afternoon at Swope Soccer Village at 2:30 p.m. The game will be televised on FS1.

The Horned Frogs have put together a four-game winning streak heading into Sunday's match. In Kansas City, TCU has defeated No. 2-seed Kansas, 1-0, and No. 3-seed Baylor, 3-2, in overtime to advance to the championship game. Allison Ganter is riding a three-match goal streak, having scored the game-winning goal against Kansas and scoring the goal tally against Baylor. Meghan Murphy scored the game-winner in overtime against the Bears.

The Mountaineers have been ranked No. 1 for four straight weeks. They enter the match riding an 11-match winning streak. Since the winning streak started on Sept. 23, the Mountaineers have allowed just one goal. In Kansas City, West Virginia defeated No. 8 seed Texas Tech, 3-0, and No. 4 seed Oklahoma, 2-0.

West Virginia and TCU will be meeting for the eighth time on the pitch. West Virginia leads the all-time series 5-1-1 and has won the last three. Earlier this season, West Virginia topped TCU 3-0 in Fort Worth. TCU’s lone win in the series was a 2-0 victory in the first round of the 2012 Big 12 Tournament. Sunday’s meeting against the Mountaineers will be the third meeting in the Big 12 Tournament between the two schools (2012, 2014).
