Texas Christian are comfortable 11 point favorites in tonight's Poinsettia Bowl, but they'll be without their third leading receiver in Antoine Hicks, a senior who has played in all 12 games this season for the Horned Frogs.
TCU head coach Gary Patterson told reporters on tuesday that Hicks's suspension was not academically related, and that Hicks was still on track to graduate in the spring. Hicks has 347 yards this season on 33 receptions. Freshman David Porter will replace Hicks in the lineup.
The Horned Frogs currently boast the nation's ninth-ranked scoring offense (41.67 points a game).
