GAME: (311) TCU vs (312) TEXAS
REASON FOR PICK: Your free pick for Thursday, November 27, 2014, comes in college football as Texas rivals TCU and the Longhorns meet. Both teams are outstanding defensively. TCU is 35th in the nation allowing 23.1 ppg. They moved the ball plenty on a bad Kansas defense last week, and the under is 15-6 after the Horned Frogs accumulate more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. They face a talented Texas defense for first-year Coach Charlie Strong, 24th in the nation allowing 21 ppg. Texas has a young QB and a ball control offense and they don't want to get into a shootout with TCU. The under is 35-17-1 in the Longhorns last 53 home games. Texas has allowed 7, 16 and 13 points the last three games to good offensive teams (West Virginia, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State). Texas is on a 16-5 run under the total and the under is 17-5 in the Longhorns last 22 conference games. Play TCU/Texas Under the total.
