Patterson spoke about the snub this week, and according to ESPN, he feels the playoff committee didn’t live up to their word, as TCU was snubbed for not having a conference championship game in the Big 12.

“I was told why we had a committee was we were going to take all that stuff out of it; I remember talking about the championship games and they shouldn't have mattered,” Patterson said. “Their job was to watch all this film and pick the top four teams no matter where you played and what you did. And then, all of a sudden in the end it got down to they played a championship game and we didn't. That's not what we were told. We were told they would pick the four best teams.”

According to oddsmakers at, TCU is among the favorites to win next season’s college football playoffs, as the Horned Frogs are listed at 9/1 to win. Ohio State is the favorite at 4/1, while Alabama has 7/1 odds.
