Scouting TCU

Record: 3-3, 1-2 Big 12; coming off 27-17 win over Kansas, TCU's first home conference win as a Big 12 member.

Best player: With DE Devonte Fields out for the season, sophomore safety Chris Hackett has become a major playmaker for the Horned Frogs. He leads the team with 41 tackles and also has three interceptions, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

The case for TCU: Despite the loss of Fields, the Frogs may still have the league's best defense, led by a talented secondary that has picked off 10 passes. Considering OSU's struggles in the run game, it could be a long day for OSU offensively.

The case against TCU: The Frogs have their own offensive issues in a season that hasn't gone at all as planned. TCU struggled to outlast KU, which hasn't won a Big 12 game since 2010, just to get to 1-2 in the league.
