Texas vs. TCU Free Pick
Following their scare last Saturday in Lubbock, the TCU Horned Frogs will look to stay unbeaten today when they host the Texas Longhorns at 12:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Horned Frogs are 15-point home favorites versus the Longhorns, while the over/under currently sits at 71 points.
Texas has in the closing minutes in back-to-back games due to special teams gaffs. In the Longhorns' loss 45-44 loss to Cal on September 19, they missed an extra point that would have sent the game into overtime. Last Saturday, they muffed a punt in set Oklahoma State up in prime position to kick a game-winning field goal, 30-27.
Either way, Texas is playing better than its overall record would indicate. That's due in large part to the emergence of freshman quarterback Jerrod Heard, who leads the team in both rushing (247) and passing (494). Look for Heard and the Longhorn offense to keep pace against Gary Patterson's banged up TCU defense.
