TCU -2½ at Utah (Over/under 43)
The Thursday night special with a possible BCS bowl bid at stake to the winner. TCU’s only loss was to Oklahoma, which was held to their lowest point total (35) of the year by the Horned Frogs. Obviously, TCU fields the top defensive team in the MWC. Utah is in the rare role of a home underdog, despite ranked higher in the polls and not having lost this season. TCU’s dismantling of previously unbeaten BYU looked good at the time, but the Cougars struggles have taken off some of the luster. This should be a great game, but based on the basis of its smothering defense, TCU gets the nod here. TCU -2 1/2.
