The Horned Frogs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Longhorns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Horned Frogs last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Longhorns last 5 overall. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The TCU Horned Frogs did beat Texas a few days ago, and I love grabbing points in a rivalry contest, but I'd need a bit more to jump in that direction. The Texas Longhorns are just the cleaner team on both sides of the ball, and win in the favorite role by an average of 13.9 points. TCU can go through offensive droughts. Give me the Longhorns and small chalk.
