MANHATTAN, Kan. – On Saturday, the underachieving Texas Christian University Horned Frogs is to face the highly-expected team Kansas State Wildcats at the Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
Just as the season was starting, the Wildcats was ranked on the top ladder at 20th while the Horned Dogs are among the unranked teams. However, TCU has risen to place at sixth of the latest ranking after their total of five consecutive victories. It includes their wins against the Oklahoma State which was then ranked 14th and the Arkansas.
On the other hand, while the Kansas State is among the promising teams at the start of the year, they are not slowly going down the hype. They have their first two non-conference games victories. However, it didn’t continue, and they lost to Vanderbilt. They also experienced a defeat during their game against the winless Baylor before being defeated yet again by Texas just recently in double overtime.
The surging ranking of the TCU Horned Frogs gives them a legit chance of being part of the Big 12 title game. They can even possibly be in the College Football Playoffs, but the Horned Frogs players don’t want to push it this early.
According to Kenny Hill, quarterback for TCU Horned Frogs, their accomplishment so far is cool for the team but the season is still a long way to go. He stated that they have only played five games and there are still seven to come, or even eight if they got lucky.
Hill is one of the key players for TCU with his 230 yards passing per game on a 69 percent of completion. Bill Snyder, the coach for Kansas State, has even noticed his success so far. The reputation of Horned Frogs for this season on both the sides of the ball is excelling. They have an average of 259 yards per game through the air and 220 yards on the ground.
On the other hand, Kansas State is somewhat having a problem in their identity as a team which hasn’t been consistent for two league games.
