Baylor Bears versus TCU Horned Frogs College Football Fantasy Picks 11-27-2015
Two Big 12 conference heavyweights will meet from college football as the TCU Horned Frogs will host the Baylor Bears. DFS draft managers can tune to ESPN TV on Friday November 27th at 7:30PM Eastern Time to track the results of their fantasy football roster picks.
Baylor enters play with a record of 9-1 and has an outside shot at a playoff berth. They responded with a nice win last week by defeating Oklahoma St on the road by the score of 45-35 after losing at home to Oklahoma the previous week. Baylor avoided the letdown performance as the team has one of their best offensive showings with 700 offensive yards gained with 304 yards gained on the ground. On defense they stuffed the Oklahoma St rushing attack by allowing less than ½ yard per run attempt on 23 carries. The team was sloppy protecting the football with three turnovers and took none from the Cowboys. Baylor is still sitting with the best total and scoring defense from college football. The team is gaining 644 yards per game on their opponents as well as scoring nearly 54 points per game. This will be their sixth road game of the year and the team is 5-0 on the highway with notable wins against Texas Tech where they put up 63 points on the Red Raiders defense. The Bears have been hit hard to injuries to their quarterback position. Seth Russell had been the starter from week one but was lost for the season with a neck injury. His backup Jarrett Stidham has an ankle injury and has been listed as out for this one.
TCU is out of the playoff race as the club has a record of 9-2. They were defeated last week on the road to Oklahoma 30-29. The Horned Frogs were in position to win the game with a two point conversion attempt in the final seconds but it was unsuccessful leading to defeat. TCU is a very young defensive team. They have had a lot of turnover the past two years and no longer are a stout defensive club. They have slipped to 73rd from college football in defending the pass and 74th in the nation in defending the run. Their offensive numbers have been outstanding but the Horned Frogs trouble on defense has been their undoing.
