cowboys-classic-TCU-LSUThe Horned Frogs of TCU taking on the LSU Tigers in Arlington, TX at the 2012 Cowboys Classic is certainly a big match up to start off these teams seasons. This Top 25 matchup is a much watch.

Currently, LSU is favored by 4 points. While the Tigers lost quite a bit of talent from last year, they are looking to improve their offense under new OC Cam Cameron. This game will be Cameron’s first test, with TCU’s defense being at the top of the Big 12.

As far as TCU’s offense, who will Gary Patterson start? It sounds like we’ll see both QB’s Casey Pachall and Trevone Boykin on the field this Saturday. You may have Pachall’s DUI arrest more freshly in your memory than his 15-2 record for TCU, but Boykin also comes with a great track record for passing efficiency. We may not know who will start until Saturday.

The Tigers, starting out at #12, seem to be quietly underrated, all things considered. LSU’s rushing game could wear out the Tiger’s defense, especially with star defensive linemen like Anthony Johnson and Ego Ferguson.

Although this game is technically at a neutral site, it will certainly be similar to a home game environment for the Horned Frogs, making this a challenge for LSU. But will TCU’s top rated defense be in for a surprise?

 

Who do you think will take this game on Saturday?
