TCU needs knockout blow
By Brian Bennett
PASADENA, Calif. -- TCU has been in total control for the second half. The Horned Frogs have pinned Wisconsin deep in its own territory on every possession and kept the Badgers off the scoreboard.
But the lead is only eight. TCU has had three drives into Badgers territory this half but then stalled and had to punt. Even a field goal puts enormous pressure on Wisconsin, which does not look able to score quickly against this defense. But the Badgers have been let off the hook.
That lack of a knockout punch could come back to haunt the Frogs. Their defense now must win the game.
