TCU offense vs. Boise State defense
The Horned Frogs will mix in some wrinkles offensively. They'll run some zone-read option out of the shotgun. They'll also use WR Jeremy Kerley on some direct-snap runs. However, the majority of their offense is operated either from the one-back set or with QB Andy Dalton working out of the shotgun with a back lined up adjacent to him. TCU has a good thing going at running back now that Aaron Brown and Joseph Turner are both healthy. Brown is a versatile back with good open-field running skills, which is a good complement to Turner's bruising style. Brown averages nearly 10 carries per game and he gets additional touches as a receiver and return specialist. Turner (6-1, 227), on the other hand, does most of his damage on the ground (averaging 12 carries in 11 games played). Ryan Christian is a factor, as well. The versatile junior is averaging 4.2 yards per carry and ranks second on the team with 24 receptions.
