Patterson is encouraged by the progress of Darius Anderson and Sewo Olonilua. With all the speculation around whether or not Olonilua would move to the defensive side of things, it seems from Patterson’s comments like that is unlikely. Or, at the very least, he’s going to get ample opportunity at RB first.
“The future’s bright because what’s going to happen is those guys are going to learn the offense, and then out of a two-back deal, we’ll be able to be in anything we used to be,” Patterson said.
Ty Summers was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week, thanks to his outstanding performance against Texas.
Summers totaled a game-high 14 tackles, including two for loss, with a sack and pass breakup. He had a key stop on Texas' D'Onta Foreman at the 1-yard line as part of TCU's second quarter goal-line stand.
Big 12 standings aren’t the end-all-be-all when it comes to bowl selection. Bowl officials have the opportunity to select a school to represent the conference. Here’s to hoping the Russell Athletic bowl doesn’t pick TCU.
The final standings and bowl placement don’t necessarily line up. But based on a fourth- or fifth-place finish, the Horned Frogs should be available when it’s time for the Russell Athletic, Texas and Liberty officials to pick the Big 12 representative in their game.
Texas thinks it’s because of Herman, but that’s unlikely. He hasn’t announced a top three, but based on which way the winds are blowing, it appears they are Alabama, Ohio State, and TCU. But what do I know.
Browning’s top six schools currently include Alabama, Florida State, Michigan, Ohio State, TCU, and UCLA. In the 247Sport Crystal Ball projections, the Crimson Tide are trending.
The Frogs beat Washington 93-80 on Saturday night to win the Global Sports Classic.
