We are back after a one day delay, and why not have today's matchup feature the TCU Horned Frogs who are actually in action tonight in the Poinsettia Bowl. If this game were to happen it would be one of the better games in the first round. I think I have said that for a handful of games, but it is true most of these games are great compared to most of what we see during bowl season.

The Arkansas pass offense would be difficult for TCU's secondary to slow down as they have struggled to stop Mountain West teams to beat TCU's secondary. However, the TCU offense should be able to keep pace and this game has the chance to be similar to the TCU vs. Baylor game.

TCU

41.7 PPG 37.4 PPG
443.9 Total YPG 445.8 Total YPG
209.08 Rushing YPG 138.08 Rushing YPG

346.3 Yards allowed per game 371.4 Yards allowed per game

220.3 Passing yards allowed per game 197.1 Passing yards allowed per game
+2 Turnover margin +0 turnover margin
2.00 Sacks per game 1.83 Sacks per game

My prediction for this game would be Arkansas defeating TCU 42-38 in a back and forth game.

Polls open each day at 12 p.m. Mountain time and run for 24 hours.
