No. 15 Texas opens as underdogs vs. TCU

An underwhelming effort against Kansas is likely to blame for the Longhorns opening as road underdogs vs. TCU.

After nearly suffering a massing home upset against the Kansas Jayhawks, despite entering as three-touchdown favorites, the No. 15 Texas Longhorns (5-2, 3-1) have now opened as road underdogs for their Saturday road matchup with the TCU Horned Frogs (3-3, 1-2), as the Horns are early 2.5-point underdogs, per Vegas Insider.

TCU has won four of the last five games against Texas, but the Horned Frogs enter this season’s matchup slogging through a two-game skid after back-to-back road losses to Iowa State and Kansas State.

TCU has lost each of its last three games against ranked opponents. The early money is on that trend to change on Saturday.

Kickoff between Texas and TCU is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT on FOX.
