KU vs. TCU preview

KJHK Sports team looks ahead at the KU-TCU football game this weekend

After a last second 25-24 loss to the Rice Owls last weekend, the Jayhawks enter this weekend’s matchup with the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs looking to prove they aren’t the Jayhawk football teams of old.

The Jayhawks, struggling to get their passing attack on track, have a tough task ahead with the 16th ranked Horned Frogs coming to Lawrence. The TCU defense ranks first in the nation for points allowed after a 56-0 shutout of Grambling State.

TCU quarterback Casey Pachall enters the game after throwing 9-for-9 for 201 yards and three touchdowns in last week’s game. The Horned Frog rushing attack combined for 255 yards and two touchdowns on 40 total carries.

The Jayhawks bring their run heavy offense into the game after failing to close the matchup with Rice. Tony Pierson leads the Jayhawks offensively with two 120-yard performances in the first two games of the season.
