This is quite the interesting battle between a pair of teams, one which is going to be a former member of the Mountain West next year, and one of which who has already left the conference. Earlier this year, TCU had to think that it had a chance at being the BCS. No one would really think that the Cougars would have the potential of being a BCS team after getting blown away and getting outscored 40-0 by their instate rivals in a half of football once upon a time this year… but don’t count it out! An upset in this game and BYU winning out just might be enough to get it into the Top 15 in the BCS rankings. If that’s the case and the Boise State Broncos end up losing at some point (especially if it is to TCU), all of a sudden, this could really be a BCS club.
The Cougars have done a significantly better job over the course of the last few weeks after getting reamed by Utah at home, and that included giving the ball back to QB Riley Nelson from QB Jake Heaps. Sure, this is going to be a tough task against a TCU defense which has the potential to really be phenomenal. However, for as good as this unit has been in the past, there are two games this year, both of which ended in losses, in which the opposition really just kept flying up and down the field. You can bet that BYU has the same potential that SMU and Baylor had against this team. Don’t be surprised if this turns out to be an upset in the making… We called the Friday Night Upset two weeks ago with San Jose State over Hawaii, and we are going to do the same thing this time around with the Cougs on the road against TCU.
