4* TCU/Baylor Big 12 Game of the Week: TCU +7
As bad as TCU looked last week in their upset loss at home to Iowa State, Baylor should not be laying a touchdown in this spot.
A lot is being made about the Baylor offense and how it put up 63 points on West Virginia and how they come in averaging 54.2 ppg, but they haven't played a legit defense yet.
TCU is going to be extremely pissed off after losing last week, and I look for them to give the Baylor offense all kinds of troubles. TCU gave up a season-high 37 points last week, but that was because the offense turned the ball over against a very underrated ISU defense. Even with that performance, the Horned Frogs still feature the 10th best defense in the country, giving up just 93.4 ypg on the ground and 181.2 ypg through the air.
On the other side of the ball, Baylor is about as bad as you can get defensively. The Bears are giving up an outstanding 571.3 yards/game, which is the 112th worst mark in the country. It's not going to matter who TCU puts at quarterback, they are going to be able to make plays against this defense and put the ball into the endzone! BET TCU!
