Southeastern Louisiana vs. TCU: Game Preview With TV Schedule

+Read full article
TCU

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Entering week one, the TCU Horned Frogs were facing a tough quarterback battle between Trevone Boykin and Casey Pachall. Now that both have them have played in the first game against the LSU Tigers and virtually played at the same level, the quarterback controversy is just heating up. Gary Patterson has a big decision to make.

On the other side of the field, the Southeastern Louisiana Lions had a solid week one performance against fellow FCS program, Southeast Missouri State. Don’t expect a big upset from another FCS school this week, TCU is just too talented to let that happen.

TCU’s offense struggled a bit against LSU, finishing with just 259 yards and 13 fewer minutes on offense than the Tigers had. Coach Patterson switched Boykin and Pachall in and out throughout the game and both finished with mediocre stats, combining for 15-28 passing with 145 yards and an interception. They will need to step up their game if the Horned Frogs want a chance at a conference title.

Southeastern Louisiana finished with nearly 500 yards of total offense last week and 309 of those came on the ground thanks to Bryan Bennett who finished with 106 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries.

The TCU defense was without Devonte Fields in week one due to a minor suspension. There’s no word on whether he will play in week two, but once he comes back, there is no way this defense should give up over 400 yards. Southeastern Louisiana forced just one turnover and held their opponent to less than 300 points.

Southeastern Louisiana will travel to TCU tot take on the Horned Frogs at 12 p.m. EST on Saturday, Sept. 7. Check your local listings for the channel.

PREDICTION: Southeastern Louisiana 7, TCU 49
