After coming up just short of a BCS birth TCU, led by senior linebacker Tank Carder, will make the trip to San Diego to play Louisiana Tech. The Bulldogs play their own brand of fierce defense centered around generating turnovers and tackles for loss. Linebacker Jay Dudley leads the team with 4 interceptions while his unit mate Adrien Cole is among the conference leaders with 13 tackles for loss. Carder is the clear leader of the Horned Frogs defense and has the benefit of having young talent around him. The Bulldogs throw the ball well but can’t stop the run. TCU is a balanced offense that is prone to turn the ball over (doing so 19 times this year.)

FAMatt BrohaDE915SrSolid college pass rusher that shows speed off the edge, plays with terrific balance and possesses a variety of moves working to get off blocks. More of a first move lineman and easily locked up at the point.
FALennon CreerRB55SrInstinctive ball carrier with terrific vision. Does a great job following blocks everywhere on the field. More of a straight-line runner that loses a lot of momentum when he changes direction.
