TCU vs Utah Preview and Free Pick – November 6th, 2010 ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>
The biggest non-BCS game of the year takes place Saturday afternoon in Salt Lake City as the undefeated Horned Frogs of TCU visit the undefeated Utes of Utah. When you think of both of these teams the first thing that comes to most people’s minds is offense. Yes, the offenses are good, but it’s the defense that stands out for these two programs. Before you take a look at these numbers keep in mind the competition of these two teams. They both play weak schedules, but the numbers are still impressive.
Last year the Horned Frogs demolished the Utes 55-28 at home in a game we were all over. They outgained Utah 549-284 and had 342 yards rushing. Utah will be looking for more than a BCS berth, they’re looking for revenge. The Utes play very well at home and are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games as an underdog and the home team has covered 4 of the last 5 in this series. I expect a low scoring first half before one of these teams turns it on in the 2nd half. I’m not in love with this game, but I will take the points at home in this game.
Pick: Utah +5
