TCU hosts Texas Saturday and opened as a one or one and a half point favorite Monday. That's because of homefield advantage, but don't tell Texas quarterback Case McCoy that.
Hey, Case McCoy, why is Texas not favored at TCU? "Probably because I'm the quarterback, right?"

Yes, the ever-confident McCoy was having a fun self-deprecating moment. Given how he played against Oklahoma, he's not a big reason that the Longhorns are currently an underdog. He's getting the start against TCU again because David Ash, the Longhorns' starter to begin the season, is still out because of a concussion.
Against the Sooners, McCoy was 13-21 for 190 yards passing and two touchdowns and an interception. And had a song made about him. You know you've arrived when you've got a country ballad in your name.
