No big surprise here, Kansas will be a heavy underdog when the TCU Horned Frogs come to town this weekend and deservedly so. The Jayhawks have opened the season 1-1 with a loss to the Rice Owls and an underwhelming win over South Dakota State. Any illusions that the Charlie Weis rebuild of Kansas would be quick have faded even more quickly as the task at hand looks to be a daunting one.

TCU has played just one game this season and they won in a dominating peformance over Grambling. The Horned frogs won by a final score of 56-0. All 56 points were scored in the first three quarters of the game and TCU amassed over 500 yards of offense while holding Grambling to just 70 in the shutout win. TCU quarterbacks were a perfect 17 of 17 throwing the football while the run game averaged 6+ yards per carry in the win.

Sure there should be some caution when evaluating TCU after this one, Oklahoma State proved that this week when they lost to Arizona. For the moment however, TCU looks to be the safe bet against a Kansas team that looks to have a long way to go before they might be considered a favorite in a game this year.
