TCU vs. Texas 11/25/16 – Game Preview

footballTCU Horned Frogs at Texas Longhorns

When: Friday, November 25th, 2016

Where: Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium

Time: 3:30pm EST


Texas and TCU are trying to become bowl-eligible in what has been disappointing season for both programs. This also could be the last game for Texas coach Charlie Strong, who apparently will be fired at the end of the season. The Longhorns cemented Strong’s demise with a 24-21 overtime loss at hapless Kansas on Saturday. Kansas had a 19-game Big 12 losing streak and had not defeated Texas since 1938. TCU is having their own issues as they were crushed at home against Oklahoma State, 31-6 on Saturday.

College Football Trends:

TCU is:

  • 1-5 ATS last 6 overall.
  • 1-6 ATS last 7 conference games.

Texas is:

  • 4-1 ATS last 5 home games.

The thought here is that Texas will play hard for Strong and not turn it over six times. TCU has another chance to earn a bowl bid so a loss here wouldn’t be that devastating. Foreman also has a chance to rush for over 2,000 yards, though don’t expect him to get 51 carries again.

Our Pick: Texas
