Along with Boise State, the Texas Christian Horned Frogs have become a perennial BCS buster. It's a personal mission of the boys in purple to play spoiler to the old guard's old ways.
They were even invited to their first BCS bowl game in 2009, losing to their partners in college football crime, the Boise State Broncos.
With a handful of starters returning for the 2010 campaign, including quarterback Andy Dalton, the Frogs had only higher expectations. It's BCS bowl or bust. I'm sure some of the Texas Christian faithful (see what I did there?) are even planning their trips to Pasadena now, prematurely or not.
Coming into the season TCU was ranked sixth in the AP preseason poll and seventh in the USA Today poll. It's hard to argue they haven't lived up to that billing.
Let's examine TCU's performance on offense, defense, special teams and coaching, and I'll attempt to prove that the Frogs are as deserving as any team in the nation of their Top Five ranking.
