2015 Season Preview: TCU Horned Frogs | ESPN

They don't think TCU runs the table, but you'll like where the Frogs end up.

At this time last year, TCU was still trying to figure out if its Air Raid offense was going to work. The vision of offensive coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie didn't start to click consistently until the Frogs' second fall scrimmage.

Replacing Chucky Hunter won't be easy, but the talent level along the defensive line is still incredibly high.

Davion Pierson (6-2, 305, Sr.), one of the Horned Frogs' more unheralded players the last several years, is the anchor of the TCU defensive front. He received 2015 Preseason All-Big 12 honors while also appearing on watch lists for the Chuck Bednarik Award, Rotary Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy.
