The Stanford Cardinal will be representing the Pac-12 as they take on the TCU Horned Frogs in the Valero Alamo Bowl. The Cardinals could reach double digit wins for their 11th time in the past 13 seasons.
As for the Horned Frogs, they are looking dangerous as usually as they have been knocking off Bowl wins one by one.
The Stanford Cardinal are once again going to end the season as one of the best teams in the Pac-12 as they hope to secure another bowl win in the Valero Alamo Bowl.
The program is slowly turning its wheel as head coach David Shaw has done more than expected so far.
Shaw could be getting his 5th bowl win as a Cardinal coach as he will need everything from quarterback Costello to complete this goal. Right now Costello is completing most of his passes for a season total of 11 touchdowns and two interceptions.
This Cardinal offense does not make a lot of mistakes in critical games as they learn from past mistakes. Costello has been the hot hand as of late as this Stanford team is winning games left and right by large margins.
If the Cardinals want to compete against the Horned Frogs, they must step up their defense as they are allowing more than 400 yards per game.
TCU Horned Frogs
The TCU Horned Frogs have changed their program around for the better good as they are having double digit winning seasons a lot in the past decade. They are also winning bowl games left and right as they have won the past three out of four games.
It is going to be a quarterback battle against the Stanford Cardinal as they also have a legit QB of their own. Kenny Hill has been taking the charge for the Horned Frogs as he has almost passed for 3,000 yards along with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Even though the Horned Frogs have been known for their passing game, they also have a legit running game that is averaging around 180 yards per game. Against a weak Cardinal front, the Frogs should be able to get the first push.
