Does TCU have a little more magic left? The No. 3 Horned Frogs of Texas Christian University will look to continue their undefeated season against the No. 12 Kansas State Wildcats in the 2022 Big 12 Championship game. All the pressure will be on the Horned Frogs as their College Football Playoff (CFP) fate is on the line. With a win, TCU will secure a spot in the CFP. If TCU were to lose, there’s no guarantee they will finish in the top four and make the playoffs.
In their lone meeting back in October, TCU overcame an 11-point halftime deficit to defeat Kansas State 38-28. The Wildcats have been in this spot before with a chance to ruin a perfect season. In the 2003 Big 12 Championship, the Wildcats upset the undefeated and number-one-ranked Oklahoma Sooners. Will history repeat itself?
The 2022 Big 12 Championship between the TCU Horned Frogs and the Kansas State Wildcats kicks off at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 3. The game will be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. According to Fanduel, TCU is favored by 2.5 points.
