COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest college football trends, the under is 4-0 in TCU’s last four games overall, 4-0 in its last four non-conference games and 7-1-1 in its last nine neutral site games. The Horned Frogs have one of the best defenses in the Big 12 and the Tigers have always been known for their efforts on that side of the ball. Look for both of these teams to keep the ball on the ground, play ball-control offense and win on defense. This will have an NFL-caliber feel to the game and should fall under the total.
