Why Texas Tech can cover

Although the Red Raiders are historically known for their relentless passing attack, they have quietly developed a top-40 rushing attack and feature one of the top running backs in the country. Senior Tahj Brooks is ninth in the country with 887 rushing yards, averaging 5.5 yards per carry. Brooks has clipped the 100-yard mark five times, including rushing for 105 yards and a touchdown against BYU. He has found the end zone at least once in four consecutive games. Brooks also has been a viable receiving option out of the backfield, securing 14 receptions for 72 yards.

Sophomore Cam’Ron Valdez also has provided a change of pace in the backfield with numerous explosive runs in somewhat limited action. Valdez has 212 yards on 29 carries for an average of 7.3 yards per rush and found the end zone in the win against Houston. He added three catches for 27 yards in the loss to Kansas State. See which team to pick here.

Why TCU can cover

TCU coach Sonny Dykes told the media that a good portion of the emphasis during the bye week was spent on working on mental and physical toughness after Kansas State clearly presented an edge in those areas. He referenced the team he inherited in his first year at the helm, which memorably went through the regular season undefeated and ended up in the national title game against Georgia.

That historic team featured a wealth of talented, experienced players such as quarterback Max Duggan and receiver Quentin Johnston, who were among eight TCU players taken in the NFL draft.

resilience and toughness

Although this year’s club is vastly inexperienced by comparison, Sykes said he challenged this club to tap into the resilience and toughness that made last year’s club so memorable. He said such traits are the goal for which the program should be defined.

The Horned Frogs have also had issues keeping their signal-callers healthy and will likely go with freshman backup Josh Hoover for the third time on Thursday. Incumbent starter Chandler Morris remains sidelined with a knee injury suffered in a 27-14 loss at Iowa State. Hoover threw for 439 yards and two touchdowns while completing 37 of 58 passes in a 44-11 rout of BYU in his first start. See which team to pick here.
