TCU vs Tarleton Game Preview
Why Tarleton Will Win
The Texans put up a nice first game against Mississippi Valley State. They got off to a hot start, made a late push, and got through 29-13.

Beau Allen and the passing game should push the Horned Frog secondary a bit, the defensive side missed Chandler Morris – the TCU starting QB is out with a knee injury – and …
Why TCU Will Win
This is the game to get everything else up to speed.
Yes, the Horned Frogs will be missing Morris, but Max Duggan is hardly a No. 2 quarterback – he could’ve easily have been the starter.
The offense that roared in the second half of the 38-13 win over Colorado will run as much as it wants – Mississippi Valley State was able to rip off 200 yards on the Texans – but it’ll be Duggan and the passing attack that should put this away fast.
