No. 7 Baylor, No. 15 TCU rivalry intense with mutual success | USA Today

The rivalry hasn't always been this intense.

This is still a rivalry between the Big 12's only private schools that has intensified with both teams succeeding at the same time. They were co-champions last season.

Unsung heros of 2015: TCU's Derrick Kindred | Football Study Hall

A really good piece by Ian Boyd on how versatile Kindred is.

There have been two constants in the midst of this that have allowed the Frog defense to make this run possible. The first is the TCU DL, a deep and high quality unit that doesn't have gaudy stats but consistently make it possible for their tiny LBs and nickel defense to reach the football without getting plowed by blockers. The second is free safety Derrick Kindred, the only remaining returning starter from 2014 and the team's leader in tackles.

TCU prediction: Can TCU channel Oklahoma to knock off Baylor | Dallas Morning News

Kohlhausen will get the nod if Boykin can't go.

Again, who is the quarterback piloting the offense? Will Trevone Boykin make his return after missing the Oklahoma game and most of the Kansas game? He seems to be moving around on his hurt ankle a lot better, Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported earlier this week. If Boykin can't go, the Horned Frogs have to turn to redshirt senior Bram Kohlhausen and/or redshirt freshman Foster Sawyer. In the same Star-Telegram report, Gary Patterson says Kohlhausen has the edge to start against the Bears because of his performance down the stretch at Oklahoma last week.

Today, a new score will rise. If it's a Baylor win, it'll be printed on a towel. If it's a TCU win, we'll just say, "chalk one up for the good guys."

They represent the painful final score, from TCU’s perspective, in the last meeting between the teams, the margin that very likely kept the Horned Frogs out of the first College Football Playoff and became the stuff of legend in Waco.
