TCU's best 10 football games thus far this decade | Sports Day

There are three losses on this list, but no mention of the Utah at TCU game that most people look at as the turning point for the program. Oh well, we get to remember the Alamo (Bowl) again, as it checks in at number one.

Easily the most entertaining thing I watched on television in 2016. Which is kind of hard to believe, considering this game, at one point, was so unwatchable. I honestly feel bad for anyone that changed the channel. The last two games of TCU's 2016 season featured five overtimes combined. Think about that. A 31-point comeback in the Alamo Bowl deserves the No. 1 spot on this list, hands down.

Top opponents for Texas in 2017, No. 68: TCU S Nick Orr | HookEm.com

Serious breakout potential for Nick Orr this year, who should be helped by better cornerbacks around him.

Nick Orr has been solid as a rock throughout his career for TCU. The second-team All-Big 12 safety returns to the fold for his senior season. He has 26 starts under his belt an a year of chemistry with defensive backfield partner Niko Small. Orr led the Horned Frogs with four interceptions last season, and he made 86 total tackles (47 solo). Watch how he disrupted Baylor’s offense in a 12-tackle performance.

Ja’Marr Chase hints that he’s nearing decision between LSU, TCU | SEC Country

Chase is a perfect fit in TCU’s offense, and is good friends with Justin Rogers. But the Tigers have put the full-court press on him since Les Miles’ firing. That being said... expect the Frogs to win out and stick it to Ed O once again.

Although Chase named LSU, TCU and Tennessee as his three finalists, he admitted that it’s truly a battle between the Tigers and Horned Frogs. While he may be nearing a decision, a visit to Fort Worth could certainly shake things up in the final days before his much-anticipated announcement.

“It’s crazy because I can see myself at both of them, but right now I just can’t choose one,” Chase explained. “For TCU, it’s the passing game. TCU’s passing game and LSU’s new offense. LSU, being my home school.”
