TCU soared to No. 11 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday night.
With the top-10 largely consisting in the same programs as the previous week, very little opportunity for improvement arose, although TCU did climb one spot from No. 12.
Once CFP hopefuls, the Horns Frogs wrapped up the regular season at 10-2, marking TCU’s third 10-win season in the last four years. Each of TCU’s two losses came on the road at the hands of Iowa State, 14-7, and Oklahoma, 38-20.
Saturday will present the Horned Frogs with an opportunity for revenge against the Sooners.
With much higher stakes this time around. TCU will take the field at Saturday AT&T Stadium against Oklahoma with the Big 12 title on the line.
Although a TCU win almost surely won’t be enough to thrust the Horned Frogs into the College Football Playoff discussion, it would also end the Sooners’ title aspirations, and essentially seal the Horned Frogs’ hopes of a CFP access bowl.
As it currently stands, though, TCU owns just a projected 40.2 percent chance to end Oklahoma’s seven-game winning streak, per ESPN’s FPI.
The Horned Frogs are currently on a two-game winning streak of their own after ending the regular season with wins over Texas Tech and Baylor.
