Current line: TCU -13.5
It’s time for another chapter in the Battle for the Iron Skillet between TCU and SMU. The Frogs hold the 44-39-7 series edge over the Mustangs and have won 10 of the last 11. Gary Patterson is 8-1 against SMU and I fully expect TCU to add another W in the win column. It will not be easy. I expect it to be close for most of the game, but the Frogs will prevail victorious.
Why TCU wins: The Frogs talent will ultimately prevail over SMU. Although the defense has been questionable at times, the Frogs still have the better athletes. I am totally confident that the offense will continue to perform like it has been and I think we will see a big day from Casey Pachall. This is a game the Frogs will come out fired up for and hopefully the fans do their part also.
Prediction: TCU over SMU 42-30
Offensive Player of the Game: Casey Pachall
Defensive Player of the Game: Greg McCoy
