TCU Horned Frogs News
9-22-14: The TCU Horned Frogs are fresh off a big win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers and will get a week of rest before traveling to take on the SMU Mustangs in Gerald J. Ford Stadium. TCU will use the game with the Mustangs as a primer before facing off with the fourth best team in the nation in Oklahoma to start the October schedule. TCU is 2-0 on the young season and is only one of three undefeated teams in the conference including #4 Oklahoma and #7 Baylor. SMU should have problems moving the football and scoring points against the Horned Frog defense as the team is sixth best in the nation in points allowed with just 10.5 points allowed per game. The TCU passing game led by Trevone Boykin and his 578 passing yards and four touch downs is the 30th best passing attack in all of the nation this season while the rushing attack led by Boykin as well is good for 52nd best in the nation.
