Amon G. Carter Stadium – Ft. Worth, Texas

The #15 ranked TCU Horned Frogs return to action against the Kansas Jayhawks this Saturday at Amon Carter Stadium after suffering a gut wrenching loss to the Oklahoma Cowboys last Saturday by the score of 49-29. This game against the Jayhawks can be viewed as a tune up for the upcoming games against Oklahoma and Baylor. Not much resistance should be met on the field against the 0-9 Jayhawks.

The good news for the Horned Frogs is that receiver Josh Doctson is expected to return to the field after suffering a wrist injury in the second quarter last week that sidelined him for the remainder of the game. The Biletnikoff candidate should feast on the injury riddled secondary of the Jayhawks who rank just about last in every pass defense category in the conference.

Horned Frog Quarterback Trevone Boykin will look to bounce back from his worst game in two years as the signal caller. It is believed that his four interception performance and loss took him out of top contention for the Heisman Trophy, but not far enough to not receive an invitation to the ceremony next month.

Kansas coach David Beaty knows his team don’t have the necessary talent to compete with the Frogs or any other top program in the conference for that matter. He is evaluating his team’s performance through the effort given. He was impressed with the way a few of the young players played in last week’s loss to Texas, 59-20. Freshman quarterback Ryan Willis will attempted to lead an offense that mirrors its own defense as far as productivity rankings within the conference. Willis has passed for 1,174 yards and six touchdowns on the season in his seven starts. His top target is receiver Tre Parmelee who has 29 receptions for 464 yards and two TDs. The running game is headed up by the tandem of Ke’aun Kinner and DeAndra Mann.

TCU will look to make waves with a convincing victory, with hopes of an ascension in the polls. This should get ugly quick.

Prediction: TCU 70 – Kansas 14
