#4 TCU Horned Frogs at UNLV Rebels

Saturday October 30, 2010 11:00 PM EST

Line: TCU -35

TCU comes into this MWC matchup fresh off a big 38-7 victory over Air Force last week at home. They have looked dominate this year and carry in a 8 game winning streak. UNLV is coming home after a horrific two game road trip. They were 0-2 on that road trip and lost by a combined 92-20.

Stats to consider:

TCU Horned Frogs:

  • TCU is 8-0 with a 4-0 MWC record.
  • They are 2-0 on the road with their largest margin of victory by 27 points.
  • Points against per game: 9 (1st)
  • Points for per game: 39.9 (7th)
  • Passing yards a game: 209.5 (69th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 270.6 (10th)

UNLV Rebels:

  • UNLV is 1-6 the season with a 1-2 MWC record.
  • They are 1-2 at home this year with no loss coming by more than 20 points. Played Wisconsin week 1 at hoe and Nevada week 5
  • Points against per game: 36.4 (110th)
  • Points for per game: 18.4 (106th)
  • Passing yards a game: 171.3 (98th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 111.9 (99th)

What to watch for:

  • TCU has been dominant on both sides of the football as they rank inside the top 7 in points for and points against.
  • The same can’t be said for UNLV who ranks outside the top 106 in both categories.
  • TCU Sophomore RB has been stellar this year with 874 yards and 9 TDs. Sophomore RB Matthew Tucker has 450 yards with 6 TDs as well. Look for the Horned Frogs to give these guys touches early and often.
  • Senior TCU QB Andy Dalton has done well chucking the ball as he has 1,635 yards 14 TDs and 5 Ints.

UNLV had an extra week to prepare for this football game making this a tougher football pick. TCU has looked great this year, but they haven’t blown anyone out on the road. Not only that, but UNLV has not been blown out at home so they may lose by 20 or so but I can’t see them losing by 5 TDs coming off a bye and playing at home. Take the points and hope UNLV used the bye week to get prepared for a very talented TCU team.
