Horned Frog Insider Staff Picks: TCU vs. SMU

The Horned Frog Insider staff makes their predictions for TCU's matchup against SMU

Brad Hardcastle: There's no reason why TCU shouldn't win this game convincingly. The only way I can see this game being close is if SMU quarterback Matt Davis can consistently run on this young defense and make some plays with his arm. SMU's secondary is too young, and honestly, probably not good enough to hold both Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee in check. This one should be another blowout. Final score: TCU 52, SMU 13

Mitchell Stehly: TCU shouldn’t have too many problems pulling away in this one. I expect SMU quarterback Matt Davis to make some plays early in the ballgame to keep SMU within a few scores, but Trevone Boykin and the Frogs pull away late behind a three-touchdown day for wide receiver Josh Doctson. Final score prediction: SMU 17, TCU 49.

J.D. Moore: The 2015 Mustangs aren't your daddy's SMU team, but they aren't quite your granddaddy's team just yet. Chad Morris has done wonders with what's he took over from June Jones, including an impressive win over UNT and a much more competitive game against Baylor than anyone expected. However, just as the Bears still put 56 on the board, the Frogs should score just as handily and I'd expect TCU's defense will give the Mustangs much more fits than any other team SMU plays this year. Final score prediction TCU 51, SMU 7
