This line makes absolutely no sense to me. The Texas Longhorns are playing some of their best ball right now, and being at home helps in an in-state matchup. I get it. But we’re getting a free touchdown with an undefeated TCU team that’s in the thick of the playoff race. The TCU Horned Frogs are one of the best offensive teams in the country, ranked fourth in total offense and third in scoring offense. Make this line make sense. Give me TCU and the free touchdown.
