While the TCU Horned Frogs would rather be playing in their third consecutive BCS game, the idea of playing Louisiana Tech in the Poinsettia Bowl is nothing to be ashamed of.

The Horned Frogs have to take this game seriously because Louisiana Tech is the kind of team that can capitalize on being taken lightly.

BCS Implications

This game will be TCU’s direct message to the BCS masterminds who pulled the trigger on the screw job that kept them from another BCS berth. While TCU will be trying to destroy Louisiana Tech, the Bulldogs will be trying to beat TCU and show the BCS that they could be next year’s version of the Houston Cougars.

 

What They’re Saying

Sports writer Jeff Papworth points out the travesty of TCU’s final ranking of No. 18 in the nation.

 

Key Matchup: Casey Pachall vs. Louisiana Tech’s Secondary

While the loss of Andy Dalton to the NFL was a hard pill to swallow, TCU QB Casey Pachall made the transition much smoother. If TCU wants to walk away with a huge victory, they need Pachall to spread the defense out with his stellar pass reads, and that will open up the run game.

 

Prediction: TCU 33, Louisiana Tech 21
