TCU preview: Frogs surging on offense; SMU rising defensively | Fort Worth Star Telegram

SMU’s defense has been decent through three weeks of the season, but will they be a match for TCU’s improving offense?

TCU, led by defensive-minded coach Gary Patterson, is outscoring SMU by more than 20 points per game. The Frogs average 46 points per contest while SMU averages 25.3. The Mustangs, under offensive-minded coach Chad Morris, have limited opponents to 25 points per game. TCU has allowed 34 points per game.

TCU receiver Emanuel Porter jumping on his chance to make plays | Fort Worth Star Telegram

I always forget that this kid only started playing football his junior year of high school.

Porter is not a finished product. He got a late start on football at Lincoln, having first drawn a basketball offer from New Mexico. He tried receiver only after being encouraged to try out. So it’s probably no surprise that even as he enters his third year at TCU, the inconsistency is evident.

But so is the potential.

The Frogs got their Big 12 campaign started on the right foot with a win over Texas Tech.

The Horned Frogs (8-3, 1-0 Big 12) dominated the opening set against the Red Raiders (10-6, 0-1 Big 12) by hitting .472 with 19 kills, but had one too many errors in the second set as Texas Tech sneaked away with the win to even up the match. TCU rebounded by siding out over 70 percent of the time in the final two sets to finish out the win in four sets. TCU finished with 59 kills in the match to go along with 77 digs and nine total blocks, while holding the Red Raiders to only 37 kills and a .095 hitting percentage.
