Meanwhile, the Frogs are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five following a straight-up loss and 1-5 ATS in their last six Saturday games. The over is 5-0 in TCU’s last five home games and 8-1 in their last nine Saturday games.
Texas has had a couple of bad beats lately, falling to Texas Tech by two in OT and Kansas State by three in their last appearance. TCU hasn’t really been close in either of their last two losses, but they played some tough teams in Kansas and Texas Tech. This one went to 2OT with a 99-98 Texas win last time these teams played, so this one should be very close. I’ll take Texas, though.
