Predictions: TCU Football vs Cal

New, 7 comments

The FOW staff batted 1,000 in week one. Does anyone see an upset brewing in week two?

TCU Football vs Duquesne (9.4.21)
Hey Kendre, three people picked you as MVP in week one... but no one did in week two. Prove them wrong?

Week one was a rousing success for both the TCU Horned Frogs and the staff of Frogs O’ War, as we all correctly picked the home team to beat Duquesne in a landslide, even if none of us quite got the spread.

Though the scores are a little closer for Cal, the Frogs are the overwhelming favorite to roll in week two, earning a win over a P5 opponent, a conference that didn’t want them, and a defense that Gary Patterson calls the best he’ll face this season.

TCU Football vs Cal: Predictions

Your Name Who will win Saturday's game? What will the final score be? Which team will force more turnovers? How many and what are they? Will Cal live up to Gary Patterson's assertion that "they might be the best defense we face this season?" Offensive Player of the Game Defensive Player of the Game Biggest question you want answered against the first P5 opponent of the season?

Christian Tjoa TCU 34-10 TCU wins the turnover battle 2-1. One of the TCU RBs lose a fumble, while the Frogs get two picks off Garbers on the other end Cal’s defense is good, but they just gave up 22 points to Nevada. I expect a classic slugfest later in the season with K State. Max Duggan has a clean game with 2 TD throws and 1 on the ground Dee Winters has double digit tackles and keeps everything contained How does the offense look against real competition in the post-Cumbie era?
Ryan TCU 31-17 TCU, 1 fumble and 1 interception It’s between Cal and WVU for me, if the Mountaineers keep playing like they did against Maryland though, Gary’s comment will hold up. Max Duggan - if Carson Strong can put up 300+ yards against the Cal D, so can Max Trevius Hodges-Tomlinson How big of a workload is Zach Evans going to take on, or will we continue with the RB by committee approach?
Colin Post TCU 35-17 TCU will force three (two picks, one fumble); Cal will force a fumble No. This will be Quentin Johnston's first 100-yard game of the season. Quentin Johnston Ochaun Mathis (tempted to put THT again) Can CJ Ceasar hold the fort down at corner (probably not)?
Russ Hodges TCU 38-7 TCU will force two turnovers, both interceptions. Maybe of the team's nonconference opponents, but I expect Kansas State, West Virginia and Iowa State to be more formidable. Max Duggan Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson Can the TCU offense make enough noise in the passing game to present a viable balance in future matchups?
Deanna Rust TCU TCU 35-10 CAL Each team gets 1 turnover. TCU will force a fumble. Cal will intercept once. NOPE Max Duggan Dee Winters ARE WE READY?? The Bears are coming off an embarrassing loss to a team that literally practiced in a parking garage, in their first non conference loss after being 9-0 going into last weekend. I want to see how TCU holds up against a team that’s emotional and challenges them. Did we learn anything last weekend? I think we’re ready, but I want to see proof.
Anthony North TCU 24-13…but remains too close for comfort in the 4th Qtr. TCU - a strip sack & an interception No. Oklahoma is still on the schedule Quentin Johnston Ochaun Mathis Will the offense play it safe to protect a lead, or will it be able and given the green light to explode for a blow out win?
Melissa TCU 33-17 TCU - two interceptions. Let the CJ Caesar redemption tour commence No. Sorry Bears, TCU will have their way on offense. Max Duggan. 300+ and three total tuddies. Ochaun Mathis is going to EAT. Will the real TCU offense please stand up?
