TCU got through its tough road game against a well coached team. Now, the Horned Frogs return home to where the scoring points by the boatload begins. This will be tough for a Lumberjacks team that's lost four of their last six games. Of course, I don't love huge chalk, but I see TCU blowing the doors off here.
