A season ending cup cake for TCU as they travel to Albuquerque to take on the New Mexico Lobos. TCU has the easiest path out of the three teams ranked around them. Oregon takes on Arizona, Auburn plays Alabama and Boise State faces Nevada; all three opponents are ranked. TCU will need to open up and show some style points and hope that Boise struggles enough to put TCU in the three spot. Even if Auburn or Oregon lose and Boise State gets to the two spot and TCU is at three there is no guarantee they will be chosen, which would be sad.
TCU should have no problems whooping New Mexico; the Lobos are nearing the end of the season and do not know who their quarterback is. On the season the Lobos have played four quarterbacks this and now there are rumors that Mike Locksley might be bought out after their loss to TCU. New Mexico's offense is bad as they average only 278.1 yards per game which is good for 118th in the nation and combine that with the TCU defense is tops in the nation in the passing game and allows only 223.2 per game. Good luck with that Lobo's.
New Mexico has very few weapons to use and their only consistent offensive threat has been wide receiver Ty Kirk who has two touchdowns and 471 yards on offense, yes not too much. TCU does have one injury concern which is running back Ed Wesley who is still nursing his sore right foot and could be limited. He had only one carry for zero yards two weeks ago against San Diego State; unless Wesley is 100 percent healthy he should not see the field. TCU has other backs who can pick up the slack while Wesley is out.
This game should be over by the first quarter, but keep an eye to see if Locksely is given a pink slip during halftime.
