TCU vs. Baylor preview:

TCU looked good through the first four weeks of the season, with three wins over San Diego State, Iowa State, and SMU and one close loss to a good Arkansas team. The last four weeks of the season, however, has been a completely different story for the Horned Frogs. TCU has three losses, to Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Texas Tech, and just one win, a one-point victory over a terrible Kansas team.

Baylor was undefeated entering its game last week against the Texas Longhorns. The Bears had eyes on another Big 12 Championship and a possible berth into the College Football Playoff. That all came crashing down, however, when the Longhorns downed Baylor wit a one-point victory. Now the Bears will need to regroup to see if they can challenge for a Big 12 Championship.

The Horned Frogs and Bears have played 111 times in history, with the series being tied 52-52-7.

TCU vs. Baylor prediction:

Baylor and TCU do not like each other. Although they will not admit they are each other's main rival, that has been the case over the last several years as they battle for Big 12 supremacy.

This year Baylor is the better team from top to bottom and it will show this weekend.

Baylor 45, TCU 31
