Boise State vs TCU
Although we would of preferred Boise State vs Cincinnati and TCU vs Florida, we are still extremely excited about tonight's match up.
Boise State is led by Kellen Moore at QB, and boasts loads of talent all over the field.
At RB they have two great backs in Jeremy Avery, and Doug Martin. Boise State loves to throw the ball but to win this one they will need to pierce the Horned Frogs defense with these guys first.
At WR they have the NFL ready Austin Pettis, who is currently listed as doubtful for tonight's game, but he has been practicing in pads all week and will obviously try to play. Opposite him they have the talented Titus Young, if Pettis is out Young will be a very busy man.
On Defense Kyle Wilson is one of the best DB's in the country and he will certainly be all over the place.
TCU prides themselves on defense, and that unit is lead by DE Jerry Hughes, Hughes is fast and almost impossible to block with one man, he needs to be in the backfield all night for the Horned Frogs to win. At LB they have the speedy and versatile Daryl Washington, he will play a major role in stopping both the run and pass game of Boise State.
On offense the Horned Frogs are led by QB Andy Dalton. Dalton will be throwing to a talented group of guys. Led in receptions by Jeremy Kerley TCU has a deep receiving core that also includes Antoine Hicks who caught six TD's, Jimmy Smith who had 449 yards in the regular season, and Bart Johnson who caught 30 balls.
At RB the Horned Frogs have the shifty vet Joseph Turner who led the team with 732 yards. Turner will be accompanied by two stud Freshman, Matthew Tucker, and Ed Wesley. Tucker ran for 667 yards during the regular season and Wesley added four touchdowns.
Both of these teams have a lot of talent and this game should be highly contested throughout.
