TCU opponents go 6-0 in bowl games
By Richard Durrett
If bowl games are any indication, TCU has beaten some pretty good competition. Air Force's 47-20 win over Houston -- and can you believe Keenum threw six interceptions? -- means TCU opponents went 6-0.
And most of the win in impressive fashion. BYU beat Oregon State, 44-20. SMU crushed Nevada (a Boise State opponent, by the way), 45-10. Utah beat California, 37-27, in a game that wasn't even that close. There were two close games, with Clemson winning 21-13 over Kentucky and Wyoming needing double-overtime to beat Fresno State (another Boise State opponent).
It certainly makes TCU look even better to see their opponents putting up strong showings in bowl games. Of course, none of that will matter to the Frogs unless they beat Boise State in Monday's Fiesta Bowl.
