Stadium: Amon G. Carter Stadium
Line: TCU (-45)
I would not want to be the Kansas Jayhawks right about now.
TCU is coming off of its first loss of 2015, and it is going to take its frustrations out on the Jayhawks.
With absolutely no chance at making a bowl this season, Kansas really has nothing meaningful to play for. The same thing can’t be said about the Horned Frogs, who could still win a Big 12 title and possibly sneak into the College Football Playoff. Oh yeah, QB Trevone Boykin could also win a Heisman.
Although TCU did go down against the undefeated Oklahoma State Cowboys, don’t forget that the game was played on the road (I’m talking to you, CFP committee). Also, people can’t forget that this team still has to play the Baylor Bears and Oklahoma Sooners, two teams that also still have a shot at the playoff.
The Horned Frogs missed out on the playoff last year. Thanks to a costly loss late in the season, all signs are pointing to another snub. After all, the first CFP rankings only had this squad ranked at No. 8 … when they were undefeated.
All of the playoff talk aside, TCU has one of the best offenses in the country, and Kansas is going to have no answer for that one.
PREDICTION: Jayhawks 10, Horned Frogs 70
