Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham out vs. TCU
Baylor will be without quarterback Jarrett Stidham for the rest of the regular season after the freshman broke a bone in the back of his right ankle.
Stidham had been playing for fellow injured signal-caller Seth Russell, who had neck surgery earlier this season. The Bears will now turn to sophomore Chris Johnson, who played receiver for most of the season but took over for Stidham in a win over Oklahoma State last weekend.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Bears are 1.5-point road favorites versus the Horned Frogs tonight at 7:30PM ET. TCU had opened as a 2-point home favorite but the line jumped the fence earlier in the week and never returned.
The Bears are just 1-7 against the number in their last eight games versus the Horned Frogs and the underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. But TCU is banged up as well, with Trevone Boykin questionable with an ankle injury. Senior center Joey Hunt has also been ruled out and will have surgery on an undisclosed injury.
