PAT’S THOUGHTS:

I really like the TCU team. They were 11-3 last year (quietly) and beat Stanford in the Bowl Game. There are a few new pieces on O (including QB); but the D is loaded. They also have Ohio State on deck, meaning they probably won’t show much of the playbook in this one. The public doesn’t care though – as 75% of the bets are coming in on TCU as a 3 TD road fave. No thanks.
