1. College Football News Preview 2020: TCU Horned Frogs Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
There are a whole lot of ifs around TCU.
If the team can start winning close games again, and if someone can shine at quarterback in place of Max Duggan, or if Duggan comes back in a hurry, and if there’s a downfield passing game, and if the corners can emerge right away, and if the kicking game is solid, and if …
If most of that happens, it’s not going to be too big of a leap to go from being a five-win team to winning at least seven.
The defensive back seven is going to be outstanding, and the running game might be sneaky-good – whatever quarterback who’s in place will play a part in that – but the pass rush has to be better, and the offensive line has to be stronger right away with SMU to kick things off.

This is going to be a better Horned Frog team.
The program might have been a disappointment over the last few seasons, but it’s got the rising young talent at the skill spots to go along with what should be one of the Big 12’s best defenses.
It’s not going to be an easy road to get to five wins or more – SMU isn’t a layup of a non-conference game, especially after losing last year – but TCU will be a tough out for everyone else.
Expect TCU to be at least two wins better with one big win along the way to make a little noise in the Big 12 title chase.
