It was Patterson himself who readily admitted before the regular-season finale last season against Iowa State that he had a feeling it somehow was going to break wrong.

Expectations have never been higher in Fort Worth as the TCU Horned Frogs prepare to get ready for a defining season. Coming in ranked number 2 in the Coaches Poll, TCU is out to prove people right this year. With Heisman candidate Trevone Boykin back at the helm and all the talent that surrounds him, the offense will be dominant again. However, for TCU to be able to live up to the hype, the defense will need to be right along with them.
