The TCU Horned Frogs will travel to take on the Kansas Jayhawks in a Saturday afternoon Big 12 college football matchup. With that said, it’s a good time to check out our college football odds series, which includes a TCU-Kansas prediction and pick, laid out below.
TCU enters this one undefeated with a 4-0 record, including a huge 55-24 upset of rival Oklahoma last Saturday. Sonny Dykes has reinvigorated a program that seemed to be a bit stagnant in the final years of the Gary Patterson era. This matchup may be tricky on the road and in a huge letdown spot.
Kansas football is undefeated at 5-0. There were no typos in that sentence. Please take some time to let that sink in. Head coach Lance Leipold is one win away from doing the impossible and taking Kansas to bowl eligibility. Last time out, Kansas won a 14-11 slugfest against Iowa State.
