TCU prediction: Horned Frogs tested against the run by Minnesota | Dallas Morning News

TCU is one of seven Big 12 schools facing a Power Five school this week, one of three against the Big Ten as West Virginia faces Maryland and Iowa State plays Iowa. Both of these conferences have been discussed as possibly being left out of the College Football Playoff if they don’t impress in marquee games. With TCU still undefeated, there’s always a chance the Horned Frogs could be among the best in the Big 12 vying for that spot, so TCU will need to do its part this week against a 2-0 Golden Gopher squad.

Before the season I called this game as a win for Minnesota. So did the gnomes. After two weeks without true success in the passing game and a starting QB who left the game last Saturday with an MCL strain, I'm less sure. The gnomes are steadfast though. They think the Gophers will win. Here's hoping they're right.
