TCU’s resume is a classic checkerboard of upsets and slip-ups. The Horned Frogs’ potency is evident in notable victories over Houston, a powerhouse in the rankings, and a grueling, high-scoring triumph over Baylor. Chipping away at Kansas almost scratched in another marquee win, yet it ended in a heartbreaker, demonstrative of their moxie in tough environments. Their offensive efficiency is something to write home about, but when you glance over the defensive metrics, there’s cause for concern, which comes to light in losses to teams like Iowa State and Baylor in the rematches. A disappointing defeat to BYU doesn't aid their cause, but with contests against West Virginia and UCF on the horizon, there’s room left for the Frogs to polish their image. Consistency will be their kingmaker or their Achilles heel come Selection Sunday.
