Looking at this TCU team as a whole, there is a great mix of young talent and veteran leadership to help bring about a massive bounceback from last season’s disappointment. The Big 12 looks to be one of the deepest conference’s in the country though. This will make the Horned Frogs’ path to success more difficult than expected.
TCU’s non-conference schedule isn’t too challenging, starting the season with games against Cal, Prairie View A&M, and SMU. The Horned Frogs were embarrassed by the Mustangs 41-38 last season. So they will be plenty motivated to get their revenge in that matchup.
Overall, Horned Frog nation should be very optimistic about the upcoming season. I predict they will finish fourth in the Big 12 with an 8-4 record in total and a 5-4 conference record. If there’s one dark horse team, or dark frog if you prefer, to watch for in the Big 12 this season, it is without a doubt TCU.
