Bowl Preview: TCU Receivers / Tight Ends

What will the Michigan State defense see when they line up against TCU in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl? In our next look at the Horned Frogs we focus on the wide receivers.

With the loss of quarterback Casey Pachall (left team) early in the season the TCU wide receivers may not have lived up to their abilities. However, there is talent here and the Spartans will be tested in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.

Josh Boyce led the Horned Frogs with 61 receptions for 800 yards and seven touchdowns followed by Brandon Carter with six touchdowns on 34 receptions for 579 yards. The Spartans will also need to keep an eye on Ladarius Brown and Skye Dawson as the pair combined for 59 receptions for 806 yards and six touchdowns.

When TCU does use a tight end they'll look at senior Corey Fuller (7 receptions, 80 yards, 1 touchdown) and freshman Griffin Gilbert (2 receptions, 11 yards). While the due have not posted big numbers they've combined to start several games this season.
