We have reached week nine of the college football season and this is a big-time Big 12 showdown.
In this game the Texas Longhorns make the trip to Amon G. Carter Stadium to take on the TCU Horned Frogs. This game is currently a pick-em.
The Texas Longhorns have a lot of questions marks coming into this season even coming off a win against the Kansas Jayhawks.
After losing to the Oklahoma Sooners a couple of weeks ago, they struggled against the Jayhawks giving up 48 points and that led to a two point victory.
This is a good offensive team, but the defense is still leaving a lot to be desired. So far this season they are giving up 30.7 points per game which is 97th in the country. They have struggled against the run and pass and they need to be better in this game.
On the offensive side the Longhorns are led by Sam Ehlinger who has thrown for 2,057 yards, 21 touchdowns, and three interceptions.
He won them the game against the Jayhawks and there is a good chance he is going to need to be elite in this game to pull out a win.
TCU Horned Frogs
On the other side of this matchup is the TCU Horned Frogs who started off the season strong winning three of the first four games, but now they are struggling having lost two games in a row.
Each of the last two games were on the road and the offense was struggling to score less than 25 points in each of the two games.
At quarterback the Horned Frogs are led by Max Duggan who has thrown for 874 yards, nine touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He has been good but at times he needs to do a better job of getting the ball into the end zone instead of kicking field goals.
On the defensive side they are giving up 24.7 points per game but two games ago against Iowa State they gave up 49 points. In this game the defense is going to have their hands full, which means the defense is going to have to step up in a big way.

I am really excited to watch this game, but both of these teams have been inconsistent which makes this game hard to predict.

Even though TCU is at home and the Longhorns struggled against the Jayhawks, they have Ehlinger and that will be the difference in this game.
This is going to be a high scoring affair but the Longhorns will get the score late to come away with a win.
