TCU at Iowa State 10/5/19 - College Football Picks & Predictions

TCU may have found its quarterback in an easy win over Kansas last week. The Horned Frogs, 3-1, take on an improved 2-2 Iowa State team this week in a road game.

TCU is averaging 275 yards per game rushing, which is in the top-10 nationally. Iowa State is giving up just 119 yards per game on the ground. Iowa State is averaging 347 yards passing, which is also in the top 10. TCU has been holding teams to 166 yards. Both teams are averaging around 500 yards of total offense.

TCU Freshman Max Duggan ran the offense to perfection and played most of the way until the game was out of reach. Duggan has passed for 523 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions. Darius Anderson has rushed for 483 yards and five touchdowns, averaing 8.2 yards. Sewo Olonilua has run for 202 yards and two scores. The team is averaging 5.6 yards per rush. TCU is averaging just over 200 yards passing.

Brock Purdy leads the Iowa State offense, having passed for 1331 yards and 10 touchdowns. Tarique Milton has 344 yards and two scores. One of those scorse was from 72 yards out. Deshaunte Jones has 334 yards receiving, and one touchdown from 84 yards. Charlie Kolar has 249 yards receiving. Six different players have touchdown catches. The Cyclones average 152 yards rushing.

TCU leads this series 8-2. Iowa State has not won since 2012. TCU won four games between 2013 and 2016. Three of Iowa State's four games have been decided by three or fewer points.

With TCU already holding the series lead, the Horned Frogs are going to have a better chance of winning. What else helps the Horned Frogs out is they have a great rushing offense that is able to really grind out the clock and keep the ball out of the hands of the explosive Iowa State offense. Look for the Horned Frogs to keep the ball and grind the clock down to nothing and bring home a great win here. Final Score Prediction, TCU Horned Frogs win in upset but grab the points just in case 24-20.
