TCU head coach Gary Patterson has traditionally produced some of the best defenses in college football, and this year’s unit is no exception. The Horned Frogs allowed the fewest points, total yards, rushing yards, passing yards, and red zone points in the Big 12 on their way to a 10-3 season and an appearance in the conference championship game.
On Thursday, December 28th, the No. 13 Stanford Cardinal (9-4, 7-2 Pac-12) will play the No. 15 TCU Horned Frogs (10-3, 7-2 Big 12) in the 25th Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. This is Stanford’s first match-up this year versus a Big 12 opponent so it is important to understand what the Cardinal should expect.
