We have reached week twelve of the college football season which means most games are conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big 12 showdown when the TCU Horned Frogs make the trip to McLane Stadium to take on the Baylor Bears.
The Horned Frogs have won the last three games played between the two teams.
TCU Horned Frogs
What a terrible season it has been for the TCU Horned Frogs and for a team that had high expectations coming into the season, they now need to win the last two games, just to make a bowl game.
The Horned Frogs have had a terrible season because of how the defense has played. This has always been a team that has leaned on the defense, but in their last game against West Virginia they really struggled giving up 47 points and that led to a blowout loss.
Another big reason for the struggles has been their starting quarterback being lost for the season. In has stepped
Michael Collins who has thrown for 1045 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions.
In his last game against the Mountaineers he didn’t play terrible throwing for 229 yards and a touchdown, but with the defense struggling, he didn’t do enough.
To win this game it’s going to come down to the offense. They need to get out to a fast start and put the pressure on the Bears.
On the other side of this matchup is the Baylor Bears who only need one win to become bowl eligable but they come into this game having lost three of the last four games.
The only win during that stretch was against the Oklahoma State Cowboys winning by a final score of 35-31. For the Bears their struggles have also been on the defensive side giving up 33.4 points per game.
On the offensive side they have been solid averaging 29.5 points per game. At quarterback the Baylor Bears are led by Charlie Brewer who has thrown for 2164 yards, 14 touchdowns, and six interceptions.
In this game the Bears need to have a big game from Brewer. If he can have a big game, the Bears can become bowl eligible.
