Prediction:
The Cougars have been one of the better surprises in 2008 and have climbed the rankings over just a short period of time. With quarterback Max Hall under center, their offensive is explosive and often leaves opponents gasping for air. But even though they’re unranked, TCU might be BYU’s biggest challenge. The Horned Frogs certainly have enough speed and athleticism on defense to match what the Cougars do offensively and we might be in store for another huge upset in college football tonight. We predict TCU over BYU 23-20.
