TCU is in a familiar position
Posted by ESPN.com’s Graham Watson
AIR FORCE ACADEMY -- TCU has dominated its game against Air Force, but it doesn’t have the points on the board to prove it.
Until the Falcons’ big option play by Asher Cark that ultimately led to the Falcons first touchdown, the TCU defense had been a wall. The Falcons had five passing yards and less than 100 yards rushing.
But the offense hasn’t been that dynamic. While the numbers are decent -- 231 total yards -- the Horned Frogs haven’t been able to get into the red zone. When they have gotten into the red zone they’ve converted two of its three opportunities.
This is the second consecutive week the Horned Frogs have had a slow start. Last week, it led just 12-7 at halftime against rival SMU before winning the game 39-14.
The weather is getting colder, it’s starting to mist and the fog is starting to roll in. Several people already have left the game because of the declining temperatures.
