Kansas has lost 3 of their last 5 games and currently rank 89th in scoring offense, 50th in FG%, and 35th in defensive FG%.
TCU has won 4 of their last 6 games and currently rank T-96th in scoring offense, 68th in FG%, and 108th in scoring defense.
TCU picked up their first road conference win an impressive fashion over a very good Iowa State team and comes into this game with an impressive 11-1 record at home this season. Kansas is a very good team and has to still be considered one of the favorites in the Big-12, however, Kansas has really struggled on the road this season posting just a 1-6 record in away games and although it’s tough giving points to Kansas, I think TCU covers this small home spread. Good Luck!
