The Horned Frogs cap off their Big 12 Championship winning season with a showdown against the SEC West, and can make a big statement on a national level with a win.

Something to make the Ole Miss visitors feel more at home.

Happy Australian New Year, Froggers and Froggettes, and welcome to the 2014 TCU Horned Frogs Football team's last game. 2014 has been a magical year for the Frogs, seeing a new offense brought in, the transformation of Trevone Boykin from a wide receiver with happy feet behind center to a bona fide Heisman Trophy contender, and a team that went just 4-8 last year to one that finished 11-1 and had everyone thinking playoffs until the final poll of the season. Today marks the final game in purple for some great Frogs, including Kevin White, David Porter, Sam Carter, Paul Dawson, Marcus Mallet, Tayo Fabuluje and Chucky Hunter- players who had the honor of being champions of both the Mountain West and the Big 12 in their careers. A group like that deserves the highest level of competition for their final game, and let me tell you, they've got it in today's opponent.

The Ole Miss Rebels aren't exactly a perennial SEC power, but outside of a weird loss to Arkansas and an absolutely tragic occurrence against Auburn, they're a team that looked like the class of the loaded SEC West. Their defense is nasty (in a way that will remind you a great deal of the TCU defense), and their offense is efficient enough to get things done most of the time, so we're in for a fight for every scrap of ground- I wouldn't have a season like this end any other way. 2014, the year of the Frog, ends today- let's send it out on a high note and start building an even more wonderful 2015.

This is your gamethread for chat and analysis of the 2014 Peach Bowl- it's been a pleasure running through these with y'all this year, hope this one is another great one.

Go Frogs!
