Rice is slowly fading into the rearview mirror and TCU is quickly approaching as the Jayhawks will play host to the no. 16 ranked team in the country on Saturday. The game represents the first Big 12 game of the season and the first Big 12 game ever for TCU. No doubt the Horned Frogs will be looking to make a statement in their opener and Jayhawk fans can probably expect a strong contingent of Horned Frog fans to make the trip to Lawrence. More on TCU as the week goes on, but for now let's get started with our first look at the TCU depth chart.

The two deep has a lot of youth at TCU, but it also has a tremendous amount of talent. Despite the losses sustained due to the drug scandal they are still a group with a tremendous amount of potential and they will use their speed to make plays and force you into mistakes. It could make for a dangerous test for a Kansas team that has yet to hit any sort of stride.
