NCAA Alamo Bowl Prediction - Stanford Cardinal Vs. TCU Horned Frogs Odds


When: December 28, 2017 - 9 p.m. ET ( ESPN )

Where: San Antonio, Texas - Alamodome

Who: Stanford Cardinal Vs. TCU Horned Frogs

The Big XII and the Pac-12 are notorious rivals in the bowl season, and the Stanford/TCU matchup is certainly one of the best we have of the entire campaign at the Alamo Bowl.

The Cardinal had an odd season this year. David Shaw's club won nine games in spite of the fact that it never did find a legitimate quarterback this season.

Yet you could also say that Stanford lost four times in spite of the fact that it had a running back who is going to end up over 2,000 rushing yards and was a Heisman Trophy finalist.

In fairness to the Cardinal, they were only beaten by three points in three separate games this season, Then again, they barely snuck past lowly Oregon State and probably should have lost to Utah as well. In the end, Stanford did get to the Pac-12 Championship Game, but it was beaten by USC for the second time on the campaign at Levi's Stadium.

TCU was also beaten twice by a team this season, though its two losses to Oklahoma seem to sit a lot better. The Frogs were good this year, but they probably shouldn't have lost to Iowa State back on October 28. Take that defeat away, and what's left is a pretty darn good season complete with wins over Oklahoma State and Kansas State on the road and West Virginia and Texas at home.

TCU won the Alamo Bowl two years ago when Gary Patterson took it here after a 10-win season. This is the third 10-win year since 2014 for the Horned Frogs.

Stanford was a notoriously bad football team for years, but it has now been to a bowl game for nine straight seasons. In that stretch, Shaw has led the team to three straight wins in the Foster Farms Bowl, the Rose Bowl and the Sun Bowl leading into this season.
