Forget all the team trends, past stats and the like.  TCU can win this game and they can cover this game.

Blake Frazier of BetOnline.com says the only thing that could get in the Horned Frogs way is their attitude.   

“The experts know that this is not an even matchup. The reality that has to gnaw at the insides of TCU head coach Gary Patterson as his team prepares to face the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs is this: The Horned Frogs won their third straight Mountain West Conference championship in 2011, only to be relegated to a pre-Christmas bowl game with little stature or value. TCU’s conference championship – won on the road at Boise State in a 36-35 thriller – did not lift the Frogs to the BCS once Houston fumbled away its Sugar Bowl shot with a horrid loss in the Conference USA Championship Game. West Virginia and Clemson are part of the power-conference club. Their three losses this past season didn’t matter, because they are both headed to the Orange Bowl. TCU’s two losses, as a conference champion, somehow mattered more, and it’s that reality which must make Patterson a very grumpy man at this point in time.

“The only thing that can stop TCU from winning is its attitude. The Horned Frogs were good enough to beat Boise State on the road, and they can play with just about any team in the country. The defense is young, especially in the secondary, but Louisiana Tech doesn’t have the speed which can exploit matchups and make the Horned Frogs sweat. TCU is more powerful up front, and quarterback Casey Pachall has grown into the position over the course of the regular season.”

Gambling911.com does have a few stats to ponder over.
