We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games.
The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Amon G. Carter Stadium. The Jackson State Tigers come to town to take on the TCU Horned Frogs.
This is the first meeting between the two teams in recent history.
Jackson State Tigers
The Jackson State Tigers had a very disappointing 2016 season finishing with a 3-8 record and in 3rd place in the East division of the SWAC.
The biggest issue the Tigers had last year was finishing out games. Besides the Grambling State game they were in every game in conference play, and if they could have just made a few more key plays, the season could have turned out so much different.
Keontre Anderson should be a force on the defensive side of the ball as he was named the preseason SWAC defensive player of the year.
He is a defensive linemen and is going to be expected to create some major havoc for opposing offenses.
To win this game Anderson is going to need to be a force. They are going to need to find a way to slow down the TCU Horned frogs offense, that should be really good again this year.
TCU Horned Frogs
Last year everyone expected Kenny Hill would have no issues filling in for Trevor Boykin who graduated. Now no one expected him to be as good as Boykin, but no one expected the struggles the offense would face with him at the helm.
They were able to finish with a 6-7 record and reach a bowl game, but that wasn’t enough for a team that had a lot higher expectations.
If this team only finishes with six wins this year, there might be some big changes at the top.
The Horned Frogs have always emphasized how important defense is for this team to have success and that should be the case again this year.
Although they don’t have a lot of Big 12 experience the boys up front are going to be bigger this year then years past, and that is going to be very important especially when the Big 12 play comes around.
To win this game the Horned Frogs need to get out to an early lead. If they allow Jackson State to stay in the game they will gain confidence, and it could end up leading to an upset.
