The undefeated TCU Horned Frogs look to move into the top six of the College Football Playoff rankings as they face a tough Texas Tech Red Raiders team on Saturday, November 5 with kickoff set for noon ET in Forth Worth.
TTU is 4-4 after a loss to Baylor last week, and 2-3 in Big 12 play, while this TCU team has taken down ranked opponent after ranked opponent. Anything can happen in the Big 12, though, so don’t count your chickens.

I like this TCU team to win, but I think that Tech keeps it close here. The Red Raiders were able to upset Texas, and this in-state rivalry will bring out the best in this team. This should be an offense-focused game and a fun one to watch. TCU’s defense isn’t stellar (one of the reasons the CFP committee gave for ranking them at No. 7), so taking the points is a solid choice to make ahead of this matchup.
