A pair of 14th ranked teams meet in Week 1 as the South Dakota State Jackrabbits take on the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday.
South Dakota State ranks 14th in the FCS Coaches Poll while the Horned Frogs rank 14th in the FBS.
South Dakota State Jackrabbits
The Jackrabbits know a thing or two about upsetting FBS teams.
Just last season the Jackrabbits took down the Kansas Jayhawks as they have proven to be a tough task for the FBS teams in early season matchups.
South Dakota State opens the season 14th in the FCS Coaches Poll and has reached the playoffs in 4 straight seasons.
The Jackrabbits will go with sophomore Taryn Christion (1,286 yards, 7 touchdowns) as the starting QB here in the season opener.
Christion beat out senior Zach Lujan for the job, but the leash is certainly going to be short on the QBs.
WR Jake Wieneke will look to beat what is now his Missouri Valley Conference record in reception yards, as he put up 1472 in his sophomore year last season.
#14 TCU Horned Frogs
The Horned Frogs lost their star QB after last season, but they may be in good hands as they enter the 2016 season.
Texas A&M transfer Kenny Hill will get the job and he has already shown he has a lot to offer. Hill was the starter back in 2014 at A&M, but was quickly benched after a few mistakes, which led him to transfer.
Hill will have plenty of talent around him, which includes sophomore KaVontae Turpin. Last season, Turpin finished with 45 receptions for 649 yards and added 8 touchdown in 2015.
However, those numbers come from him being just the 2nd or 3rd option even at times. Now he’ll step up and be the #1 as he and Hill look to develop some chemistry early here.
TCU expects to see two RBs get time here in this one. Kyle Hicks and Trevorris Johnson will take over the role and get a share of touches.
