TCU opened up the season at 1-3 thanks to a tough schedule coming out of the gate. The Frogs hung in there though, falling 37-34 to Iowa State, then beating Texas 33-31 before falling to Kansas State 21-14 and Oklahoma 33-14. After that it was two wins over Baylor and Texas Tech before a 24-6 loss to West Virginia on November 14.
In the loss to the Mountaineers, TCU quarterback Max Duggan posted 161 yards and an interception on 16-of-29 passing. Kendre Miller topped the rushers with eight carries for 58 yards, and Emari Demarcado had four catches for 66 yards.
Over on the Kansas side, there’s not a lot to get excited about, needless to say. The Jayhawks have fallen to Coastal Carolina, Baylor, Oklahoma State, West Virginia, Kansas State, Iowa State and Oklahoma in succession, each by double-digit margins. Kansas’ latest loss to the Sooners was 62-9 and basically over by halftime.
In the loss to Oklahoma, Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels posted 115 yards and two interceptions, while Daniel Hishaw put up 73 yards on 10 carries. Luke Grimm topped the Jayhawks receivers in that one with four catches for 61 yards.
The Frogs are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games in November and 1-6 ATS in their last seven following a bye week. TCU is 1-7 ATS in their last eight on turf and the under is 4-1 in their last five overall.
Meanwhile, Kansas is 5-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games in November. The Jayhawks are 3-14 ATS in their last 17 after a bye week and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 overall.
PICK: I’m going TCU, but probably staying away due to the thick line. The Jayhawks haven’t scored more than 23 points all year, and they’ve been at 17 or below in five of seven games. Defensively, they’ve allowed a minimum of 38 points in every game, and have given up 169 across their last three outings combined. The Frogs were pretty uninspiring versus West Virginia but I think they’ll get their proverbial mojo back here.
