College football is back on Thursday as the Texas Tech Red Raiders will clash with the TCU Horned Frogs at the Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas. TCU was the better team last season in this encounter as they won this game on the road last year by a score of 27-3.
Texas Tech Red Raiders Form
The Red Raiders are one of the teams that are facing some challenges as their defence is not up to the task in recent games. However, they had a strong defensive performance in the game against Oklahoma State. That means that they have the potential to be strong at the back, it is just a matter of consistency.
Texas Tech is on the 108th place in the country in total yards allowed and on the 122nd spot against the pass. Moreover, the Red Raiders are on the 91st place in points allowed, letting in an average of 31 points per game.
TCU Horned Frogs
The Horned Frogs have been very solid in the defensive side of the game this season. They had some great defensive performance in the game against Iowa State, in which they allowed only 79 yards passing. The Horned Frogs had the in-form Garret Wallow as he was the key in the win over Iowa State, finishing with 11 tackles and a sack. However, TCU struggled against the Buckeyes and it will be interesting to see how they will fare against the Texas Tech. This game will be a big challenge for TCU
Both of these teams are focusing on improving their defensive performances. It seems that the two teams have made some progress. My expectation is that TCU has the advantage in this game as they are a better defensive team. They will also not be facing Alan Bowman in this one as he is out with a lung injury. Go for TCU in this one.
