Randy’s Free Pick
The Kansas Jayhawks obviously have the horses to win this game going away, but TCU continues to be a feisty, competitive squad that doesn’t go away easily and actually wins in the underdog role by an average of 1 point. TCU is one of the better defensive teams in the country, making it hard seeing a blowout take place. Give me the Horned Frogs and the free buckets.
