Since joining the Mountain West in 2005 TCU is 5-0 against UNLV winning by a combined score of 195-37. TCU's #2 ranked total defense should easily handle UNLV's 114th ranked total offense.  On the other side of the ball it should be more of the same with TCU's #11 total offense lighting up UNLV's #92 total defense.  The only possible edge I see for UNLV is if Sin City's dark corners get ahold of the Frogs and they show up to the game like Johnny Moxon, Tweeder, Billy Bob, and company did after a night at the "Landing Strip."

What to Watch For:  Mike Leach

What to Watch For Besides Mike Leach:  Keep an eye on the defensive line rotation.  With senior nose tackle Kelly Griffin out with a broken ankle I originally assumed that Jeremy Coleman would slide into fill that role much as he did in the Air Force game.  But according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram senior defensive tackle Cory Grant will slide over to nose and sophomore DJ Yendrey will start at defensive tackle.  It was also reported that ends Braylon Broughton and Clarence Leatch have also been working inside this week so look for lots of different looks on the Horned Frog defensive front.
