Football:

Big 12 mailbag: TCU vs Baylor - ESPN.com

Personally, I voted TCU over Baylor primarily for two reasons: quarterback and schedule. TCU has a proven QB in Trevone Boykin; Seth Russell is a relative unknown. And Baylor has to go to Fort Worth. Whenever teams are close, I always go back to quarterback and schedule. As a result, TCU got the edge, at least on my ballot.

There is no game on paper in the Big 12 and very few nationally that have the type of anticipation as Baylor's trip to TCU has on Nov. 27. In fact, Mike Huguenin of NFL.com named Baylor-TCU the top game for 2015.

Big 12 Superlatives: TCU most overrated? - Sports Illustrated

The Horned Frogs are loaded on offense and should have a solid season, but their current status as the clear favorites in the Big 12 is overstated. It’s a mix of the inevitable bowl bump that Oklahoma got before last season and simply not realizing how lucky TCU was in 2014.

TCU has gone from Big 12 newcomer to preseason favorite after only three seasons, eight-time champion Oklahoma has an unprecedented title drought for coach Bob Stoops and West Virginia finally feels experienced in the conference.
