College football is loaded with notable teams this season. One of those teams is TCU, which comes in at No. 37 in Athlon Sports' ranking of all 130 FBS teams.
TCU is just behind of Baylor (36) and just ahead of NC State (38).
Here's why: Even though the Horned Frogs return only five starters on defense, it’s tough to doubt this group under Gary Patterson’s direction. But even if TCU’s defense ranks near the top of the Big 12 once again, this team won’t increase its win total (seven) without improvement on offense. The Horned Frogs have one of the nation’s top playmakers in Jalen Reagor, but uncertainty surrounds the quarterback position exiting spring practice.
